Last Saturday night we went to an event at Little City Books in Hoboken - a combination book release/signing, discussion, and concert, all in celebration of Bob Mehr's Trouble Boys: The True Story of the Replacements.
The 'Mats are one of the all-time great bands as far as I'm concerned, and the I-haven't-finished-it-yet-but-so-far-it's-more-than-worth-the-effort book has drawn attention from some pretty fab people.
Michael Hill, who helped the band navigate Warner Brothers. Or tried to.
The interlocutor was Bob Mehr himself, writer and raconteur extraordinaire.
Glenn Morrow's Cry for Help
Freedy Johnson with Dave Schramm. Take that in for a second. Dave also answered Morrow's Cry for Help from the sidelines.
The Dead Wicks.
It's not a big place (true to form) but we packed it pretty good.
