The Replacements post brief rehearsal footage -- no sign of Har Mar
When the Replacements hit the stage for Riot Fest dates in Toronto, Chicago, and Denver, it's a safe bet that they'll be toting "Alex Chilton." Why? Well, the guys -- whoever they are aside from Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson -- posted a clip from a practice space featuring a tiny bit of the song.
The footage showed up on the band's new Facebook page Thursday. By their own admission the Replacements' entry into social media hasn't been a full-on plunge. "Keep checking back here at the official band page of The Replacements for a bevy of inactivity and a disturbing lack of content!" is the tagline the site offers.
Har Mar Superstar isn't joining the Replacements
The Replacements WILL REUNITE live at Riot Fest
So, part of this disturbing lack is that we only get nine seconds of the Replacements rehearsing. Nine! And all you can see is a headless figure in some baggy shorts rocking out and a sliver of a drummer. Definitely no Har Mar Superstar.
"Rest assured people, when personnel are confirmed, we will announce it here. Anything else is just a good ol' goof," another post from last week reads.
So, take it away, headless figure in some baggy shorts!
