Still a Place for the Replacements
Last Friday's Replacements tribute nite at Cafe Nine was encouraging. It felt exactly the way it should have felt—loose and sloppy, amiable, anything-goes. Anything too slick would have sucked. There were countless comforting bar-band rock & roll moments, due as much to the cafe nine ambience as to the waitress-in-the-sky spirit of the band being celebrated.
