Getting off the internet

1. Tonight at the MFA's Remix Auditorium: brother and sister have a talk with grandma. If you have never heard of the Fiery Furnaces or Remembering My Choir, we're sorry you're so retarded, but really, it's not too late. After all, the bandwagon is just getting loaded up. "It’s really straightforward," Matt Friedberger tells the Phoenix this week. "It’s the simplest music you can ever imagine, played very casually, and then there’s a woman sort of talking and a woman singing." Exaaaaactly. Heck, just listen to this little nursery rhyme:

LISTEN: The Fiery Furnaces, "Seven Silver Curses" (mp3)

2. They just put their name on a cheesy goth-hits CD. They keep playing rock clubs with terrible sightlines. They wear pasties onstage. And feminist rhetoric aside, they're basically the Pussycat Dolls with better tattoos and uglier boyfriends. But say this for the SUICIDE GIRLS, they know what makes record-store nerds skeet: on their recent DVD, that one SG jawn brags she can stack seven CDs on her nipples! They're at the Middle East, 480 Mass Ave in Cambridge with the all-girl Japanese trio Tsu Shi Ma Mi Re 617.864.EAST.
