The Replacements in April 

In April, Tributosaurus gets dirty and beautiful at the same time.  Just like Paul Westerberg’s best songs. 

Join us at Martyrs on April 4th and at Wire on April 6th when we become alt-rock icons The Replacements.   

We’ve done this show just once before, in November of 2006, and since then the collected cannon of The Replacements has only grown in stature and importance.  These songs have lasting power and relevance.  Within the ‘Mats music, punk rock met the vintage swagger of The Stones, went to college and helped spawn indie rock, and eventually greatly influenced an alternative rock universe they should have owned. Did their music business failings influence the drunken chaos of their personal lives, or the other way around?  You can talk about it at the set break. 

There will be a healthy dose of the early punk stuff, a wide and deep array of pop mastery through the outrageously great Let It Be, and some of the Tommy Stinson-free studio gems from All Shook Down.  We may throw in a couple Westerberg solo tunes, because how could we not? 

Come out in April to join us, as we celebrate these magnificent Bastards (Of Young).

St. Pat's Day Weekend Van Morrison Shows 

It has become a Tributosaurus tradition on St Patrick's Day to pay tribute to Ireland's favorite son, Van Morrison.  One of the world's finest singer/songwriters, Van is always a ton of fun. Once again this year, we are giving you a couple chances to catch the show, and this year it all lines up for the whole St Pat's Day weekend!  

We will bring you music from many different eras of Van's catalog - from the meandering gritty self explorations to the pop hits,  and even a few traditional Irish songs.  We will be joined by some great guests - Kalyan Pathak, Tom McCarthy, the Paleolithic Horns, and of course the usual cast of characters.  

We'd love for you to come and celebrate with us. 


Friday, March 16th AND Saturday March 17th 
At WIRE - $25 - 9PM Both Nights   
6815 W. Roosevelt Road - Berwyn, IL 60402  
Tickets available at
