Porsches on the Autobahn 

9 p.m. Wednesday, February 7. Off Broadway (3509 Lemp Avenue).

The mathematical equation for the Boston-via-Germany quartet Porsches on the Autobahn goes something like this: the suit-and-sunglasses aesthetic of Kraftwerk x ('80s techno-Kraut-pop + the Tetris background music + rave-rappers the Shamen) x ((Borat's shtick - stupidity) + sly self-awareness). Sound like a trainwreck? Perhaps — had the 'bahn members not earned some serious respect by touring with the Dresden Dolls overseas and releasing DVD #1, a DVD album containing music videos and downloadable MP3s. And after all, it's not every day that a band secure enough to sing about auto-erotic asphyxiation as "the best kind of masturbation" comes through St. Louis.
