MUSIC: Join Jenny Lewis protegées The Watson Twins tonight at Lee’s Palace as they promote their new album, Fire Songs, for a night of what their MySpace refers to as “Indie/Folk.” Filter Magazine raves , “You will rejoice with the mix of sunshine and crunch on Fire Songs.” Readers, tonight is your chance to see if you agree. With Tim Fite. Lee’s Palace, Doors at 8:00 p.m., $10.
