Motor Skills, DJ Lord Redbyrd 

When: Fri., Oct. 5, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $3

Their Manteo schoolmates failed to vote them "most likely friends to grow up and record a hit record," but that hasn't kept buddies Christopher Hutcherson-Riddle and Mike Dillon down. The pair have been writing and recording music together for years, pushing their favorite bits of reverbed punk and electronic bounce into new tunes. Ultimately, they decided to diversify their interests, with Dillon leading the celebrated (and more rock-oriented) Gross Ghost and Riddle taking lead on Motor Skills. As Motor Skills, the two, along with Old Bricks' Andy Holmes, create post-punk influenced electronic pop—dark, danceable and dangerously hooky. Lord Redbyrd offers a DJ set. —Ashley Melzer
