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).
