City Pages’ Reed Fisher would have you believe the above advertisement for The Replacements’ first Twin Cities shows in 23 years are both an homage to classic Minnesota Twins artwork and Paul Westerberg’s claim of dumping demo reels in the Mississippi River. (links courtesy Paul Lukas)

I, however, would prefer to believe that Paul and Tommy are longtime film buffs, instead alluding to the climatic scene the poorly reviewed Paul Simon vehicle, “One Trick Pony”, in which master tapes — ruined by the meddlesome Lou Reed — are rolled down the street.  Also of note — the St. Paul concert is taking place at Midway Stadium, home of the American Association’s Saints, and host of the greatest minor league baseball promotion of all time.
