Live music in Durham has ebbed and flowed over the years, but it's been on a definite upswing the past year and a half - and Motorco Music Hall, a 500-or-so-capacity club near the old Durham Bulls baseball park, is one of the key players.
Since opening in the fall of 2010, Motorco has settled into a niche that involves plenty of live acts, including Tuesday's show with funk-punk legends Fishbone and upcoming dates with We Were Promised Jetpacks (April 7), Lambchop (April 14) and !!! (April 18).
But Motorco's layout lends itself to an intriguing array of events that are more multimedia in nature.
As a preview of the Fishbone show, Motorco will also host a free Monday night screening of the documentary "Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone."
Other recent events include Luchadoras Mexican wrestling, and "Big Lebowski: The Musical."
