    Sorry, not the Keanu Reeves/Gene Hackman movie. (That's always on TBS.)

    Awesome! I might be seeing them this weekend, I have some friends with tickets that might not make it. *crossing fingers*

    Go for the whole show. The Hold Steady are opening a bunch of dates for them and they're among my favorite current-day bands.

    The low interest rates and crazy stock and real estate markets of the past 5 years have a lot of old-timers heading back to work.

    Sweet! I didn't realize they were playing with them. Tickets have been sold out forever, so hopefully I can go...cheapest tickets on StubHub right now are $140 each :(

    Great performance, they're finally not shooting themselves in the foot with that studied "we don't give a shit" attitude. Actually looked like they were working hard. Still, it ain't really the Replacements without Chris Mars.

    Yeah, but it's so good to see them performing again. Wish I had a ticket. Sigh.

    I've never heard of them, I watched the video and still have no idea who they are.

    there was really no other option, considering he's dead. I guess they could've worked out some sort of wacky "weekend at bernie's" scenario.
