The MPLS + STPL party band that blew up (in more ways than one), The Replacements have since become huge legends since their problematic heyday. Want to hear about—or more likely share your own #hottake on—the ‘Mats? The new biography from Bob Mehr that’s spreading like wildfire throughout our music scene because of Westerberg’s and Tommy Stinson’s involvement, Trouble Boys: The True Story of the Replacements, has a big release party on Saturday at the Turf Club. Die hard and casual fans alike will talk Replacements before and after hearing selections from the new book. Saturday, 4 PM. Free. —Betty Woodridge-Kohler
