Someday, I am going to populate this list with nothing but links to The Replacements movie or the The Replacements cartoon or knee replacements. Why? Because that would make me laugh. I should have probably done it this week, because I didn’t find anything of interest to link to. Boo to the hoo.
However, if you’re looking local (Minneapolis/St.Paul) and you’re looking for something to do this Friday, June 6th, and you weren’t invited to my birthday party (because my birthday is June 6th), you should go check out the How Was the Show 6th Anniversary Birthday Bash at the Turf Club.
Why? Because I am sure it will be filled with cool kids, and because one of the bands (the 757s) was described thusly: “First things first: These guys are capital-L Loud. The music, which is a mix of The Replacements ragged thunder and The Who’s jetliner roar, ends up sticking in your grey matter almost immediately.”. So, duh, you should go.
The evening rig is playing!! I saw them last night on a stage next to edison hs in ne. No one was there that knew the music except me a couple friends. They are awesome…check them out.
I’m not suggesting it turned out that well, but I did recently post a piece reminiscing about when I won tickets to the ‘Mats from a radio station–back in ’89 (when they still got played on the radio in L.A.). The best part is that I won them by knowing ‘Mats history, not just for being a lucky caller.
If you’re really desperate for material.
P.S. Early birthday wishes to you.
