Then there’s Paul Westerberg of the Replacements, who pursued an on-and-(increasingly)-off-again solo career after Minneapolis’s seminal indie band broke up, falling almost entirely out of public view in recent years—only to suddenly mount what seems to be turning into a comeback tour with festival appearances in Canada, Illinois, California, Utah, and Georgia. Among those three artists, Westerberg has remained the most consistent resident of Minnesota (Prince splits his time between Chanhassen and the cosmos, while Dylan returns only occasionally to reportedly drive his riding mower down rural lanes)—but the Replacements haven’t yet announced any hometown gigs. Why, Paul? What does it all mean?
