Future Islands, Lonnie Walker, Motor Skills 

When: Fri., Nov. 5, 10:30 p.m. 2010
Price: $7-9

These three bands played Local 506 together last August, but lately each has evolved at such a clip that you should catch the reprise even if you danced yourself drunk at the original. Motor Skills has pushed beyond its rap gags and one indie rock anthem to build a library of haunted and delightful tremors as a quartet. This is a release party of sorts for a new, excellent 7" split between Future Islands and Lonnie Walker. On its side, Future Islands explores big billows of bass and the pained soul possible in frontman Sam Herring's voice; on the flip, Lonnie Walker frontman Brian Corum once again tries to write a love song (the same process that yielded the terrific "Feels Like Right") and turns in one of his band's best, most inspired tunes to date. —Grayson Currin
