    The Replacements reunion tour: dreams do come true!

    I remember someone posting a question years ago, asking what band you would most like to have a reunion tour. I recall that I mentioned both Pavement and The Replacements.

    With that in mind, I saw Pavement at The Mann in Philly on 9/17/2010 and I'm going to see The Replacements in Philly (The Festival Pier at Penn's Landing) on May 9th. It's the final show of their tour and I'm not so sure they'll ever be on the road again, so this is 'bucket list' material for sure.
    I call my bathroom Jim instead of John so I can tell people that I go to the Jim first thing every morning.

    If you say the word 'gullible' very slowly it sounds just like oranges.

    Excellent! I love it when bucket list items can be checked off. I'm seeing Beck in Memphis in May. For me, that's a bucket list item. Beck and I passed each other going between main stage and second stage at a Lollapalooza in the 90s, but I missed most of his set. That's when I used to wander around without a plan.

    Do you think they'll be *ahem* celebrating the last show onstage like they used to?

    Know wot I mean, nudge nudge, wink wink.

    Yeah, it's great to check off those bucketlist bands. I'll be checking off one of my own in September...Rheostatics.

    You've likely never heard of them, but they were a staple in the Toronto music scene for 20+ years. Although I'd heard of them of course, I never really got into their music until just before they broke up. They are reuniting in September for three shows to support the Art Gallery of Ontario. There are only 500 tickets per show and we have two of them.

    Here's a fun little tune with a guest star that you might recognize...

    Ha haa, there's a picture in the new Rolling Stone of Westerberg performing onstage in a friggin' tent. It says he has back problems, but why a tent, for Buddha's sake?

    There's a big thread over on the Steve Hoffman board about this tour.

    No, they did not, but many in the crowd were celebrating throughout the night. Great show though! Superchunk was the second opener and they were really good too, but seeing the Replacements? Priceless.
    I call my bathroom Jim instead of John so I can tell people that I go to the Jim first thing every morning.

    Can't believe you went to see them instead of Rush!

    If I want to hear the Chipmunks, I'll listen to the real deal instead.

    Haven't you heard? Geddy's voice is so blown out these days, he sounds like Johnny Cash!
