Live Ledge #116: Replacements Reunion

This was already going to be a super-packed show, as my freelance gig at the Argus Leader had set up interviews with members of Cursive and Teenage Bottlerocket to promote upcoming local gigs. Both thankfully agreed to appear on tonight's Live Ledge, and were wonderful guests. Look for articles on both bands to appear in next Thursday's Link insert.
Of course, when news filtered out this past Wednesday that The Replacements were reuniting, it was a given that I'd be spending some time talking about these upcoming RiotFest appearances. Color Me Obsessed director Gorman Bechard agreed to once again appear on the show, and we both took an honest look at the (mainly) positives and negatives about their decision to play live again. It's always fun to chat with Bechard, and even without the travels to see the 'mats he has a busy summer and fall with three movies about to be unleashed on the public.
With all of this chatter, there wasn't a lot of room for music, but I found time to squeeze in a few tracks. Download this show from the usual online sources, or...
