A Tribute to the Replacements
We can't hardly wait for the annual nod to hometown punk rockers the Replacements. Both First Avenue's mainroom and the 7th St. Entry are set to overflow with the Melismatics (pictured), Pink Mink, Lucy Michelle & the Velvet Lapelles, Bloodnstuff, and more tearing through the 'Mats catalog. In particular, 1987's pop-laced Pleased to Meet Me gets a full run-through, but expect a wide range of perspectives on the material. Also among those set to perform are Curtiss A, Orion Treon, John Swardson, 89.3 the Current's David Campbell, the 4onthefloor's Gabe Douglas, Actual Wolf's Eric Pollard, and Jim "The Mad Ripple" Walsh bringing his Hootenanny antics. This time around there's a chance to bid on VIP tables to send funds to ex-Replacement Slim Dunlap, who has been on the mend after a debilitating stroke. 18+. (Photo by Joshua Olson)
