We've got three pairs of tickets to give away to the My Brightest Diamond Show at the Museum of Fine Arts on November 18 at 7:30 pm. Tickets go to the first three people who leave comments here on this post. You gotta be willing to swing by Phoenix HQ (near Fenway park), by Friday, November 16 at 4 pm to claim them.
DJ Lonewolf aka Kevin Driscoll invited us to document the making of the MIT comparitive media studies dept's attempt to create the most-populated video of folks doing the Soulja Boy dance on the internet.

Start putting out heartland-ish rock and you're bound to attract an audience partially made up of drunken brodudes. That’s the lesson to take from former D Generation frontman-turned-roots-rocker Jesse Malin’s show last night at TT’s, during which it was hard to tell if the group in the center of the room yelling out over a few of the singer's acoustic numbers and his occasionally verbose song introductions were disciples or haters.
We’ve got 4 pairs of tickets to give away to see the Sea & Cake on Sunday night at the Museum of Fine Arts. They’ll go to the first four people who post a comment on this post saying they’re interested. Hitch: you gotta be willing to swing by Phoenix headquarters (near Fenway) by 6 pm this evening to pick ‘em up.
Yesterday was a day of triumph for Tom Lehrer. "It just takes a smidgen’ to poison a pigeon," the Harvard-educated comedian gleefully sang in 1959. "When they see us coming, the pigeons all try an’ hide, but they still go for peanuts when coated with cyanide."
