The Fiery Furnaces return to Columbus tonight. (Those biblical figures referenced above survived said furnaces in the Book of Daniel.) Check my preview to learn more about the utterly unique, often frustrating brother-sister duo, and watch the full concert video below (how cool is that?) to get a taste of what might go down tonight. Power-pop mop-tops The Spinto Band opens the $12 show. Doors open at 7 p.m.
On TV, NBC has two new episodes of Chuck sandwiched around Celebrity Apprentice. For more of the Nerd Herd's exploits, tune in at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. Other shows of interest might include the last new Ugly Betty (8 p.m., ABC, still never seen it) featuring Gene Simmons, and the Winter X Games (9 p.m., ESPN). Or if you're really depraved, watch the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders on Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader? (8 p.m., FOX). See what the strike has done to me???
