It’s time to announce the biggest party of our 17th annual rally weekend, FYBO Saturday Night at The Pinhook! Our headlining band this year is local ska heroes Sound System Seven, who will be sandwiched between tasty soul vinyl spun by DJs Midnite Cowbwoy, Sir Lord Thomas, and Soulful Love! So dust off your dancing shoes, hop on your scooter (or not), and get ready to party – you won’t want to miss the raffle either…come out!
Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate our super sweet 16th year – let’s do it again next year, OK?
Can’t stop, won’t stop.
Because you should all move down to the Dirty D, we found you a place to live! 300 Swift Apartments not only decided to sponsor FYBO, they are basically awesome and in a great location, close to 9th Street and downtown (basically where we will be hanging out during the rally).
Details: Get a studio, one bedroom and two bedroom apartments with 24 hour access to amenities (everybody in the pool!). All of the apartment homes feature plank style flooring, granite countertops in the kitchen and bathroom, clean steel kitchen appliances, oversized closets, a washer and dryer and a full-sized balcony.
Rent includes a cable and internet package through Time Warner Cable, valet trash service, and parking and bicycle storage in a controlled access garage built under our community. Some of the amenities include an open courtyard featuring outdoor games and grilling kitchen, conference rooms with AppleTV and wireless printers, a private yoga studio with OnDemand personal trainer, a high endurance fitness center, a saltwater pool with dual aqua lounge shelves, a multi-purpose screening theater with Xbox and a two-level game room with billiards and card tables.
Boom! We’re happy to include 500 Swift as one of our sponsors for FYBO 16!
This year FYBO Saturday Night will be returning to Motorco Music Hall – grab a beer and check out our band this year, The Idle Gossip! Hailing from Baltimore, Maryland, The Idle Gossip brings their brand of “‘extreme R&B.” A bit of punk, a bit of blues, a bit of rock, a bit of pop” to our little corner of NC.
DJs Midnite Cowbwoy, Sir Lord Thomas, and Nate the Skate spin soul 45s until your dancin’ feet can’t take it no mo!
723 Rigsbee Ave.

We had another amazing rally and send out our love, thanks, and two stroke smoke to all of you who braved the freezing cold to commemorate 15 years of FYBO. We were able to raise about $1,000 to donate to Durham Rescue Mission, thanks to your rally registrations and the raffle! Special thanks to that guy with the stripper dollars covered in glitter who bought so many raffle tickets…you know who you are…
We also got some pretty substantial news coverage from the News & Observer – read all about the rally here and check out the sweet video they put together about the rally and scootering, shot during our town ride excursion to the Duke Lemur Center:
After the rally and after expenses are paid, The Incriminators Scooter Club donates the remaining proceeds of the Freeze Your Balls Off Rally to a local charity – this year’s worthy recipient is the Durham Rescue Mission, Durham’s oldest and largest long-term homeless shelter, which provides food, clothing, permanent supportive housing, vocational training, counseling, job placement, education, accountability and much more to people in need in Durham, Chapel Hill, and Raleigh. This cold snap has us all glad for shelter, so we felt it was fitting to donate to an organization that helps those that do not, you know, because freezing your balls off should be a choice, not a necessity.
