Legendary rock band The Replacements split up in 1991, walking away from a career that, while never fully embraced by the mainstream, could only be described as incalculably influential. Against all odds, frontman Paul Westerberg and bassist Tommy Stinson reformed the group in 2012 (along with drummer Josh Freese and guitarist David Minehan), and have been thrilling young and old alike with their timeless sound ever since. Or at least that’s what we’ve heard—the Minneapolis band’s victory lap has yet to include Milwaukee. That’s all set to change, however, when The Replacements play—wait for it—The Rave on Saturday, May 2. Tickets go on sale Friday, February 20 at 10 a.m. Need we say more? No. Holy crap.
