A Tribute to the Replacement
Twin Cities music fans swell with pride any time an out-of-town musician covers a song from our hometown heroes the Replacements. Imagine the sheer joy (and riotous unpredictability) that a whole set of 'Mats covers can bring, and you have First Avenue's annual Tribute to the Replacements. There's a prestigious list of local bands scheduled to fill both the Mainroom and the Entry with the unruly rock 'n' roll of the 'Mats, featuring a special performance of their celebrated debut album, Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out the Trash, in honor of its 30th anniversary. The 4onthefloor (pictured), Red Pens, BNLX, Night Moves, High on Stress, Martin Devaney, and John Swardson are just a few of the artists scheduled to appear, as well as a stellar list of guest vocalists who are sure to inject their own distinct spirit into the 'Mats' boisterous back catalog. This is a guaranteed good time whether or not you're a fan of the Replacements. 18+. (Photo by Tony Nelson)
