Watch The Replacements at Riot Fest in Chicago

The Replacements at Riot Fest
Tommy Stinson and Paul Westerberg

The rock gods gave a rain reprieve for the Replacements reunion show Sunday night at Riot Fest in Chicago. This was the second of three planned reunion gigs this year giving rise to rumors that a full blown tour and new album may be in the works.

Seeing as the Replacements played Madison on a regular basis back in their heyday and Paul Westerberg's wife, Laurie, is originally from here, we thought a sampling of crowd-shot videos would be fitting for a band that lived the DIY punk ethic to the max.

Break out the black lights, Ty Segall is all FUZZ

FUZZ

Just when you thought it was safe for no new Ty Segall material, the creative guitarist surprises you. No slowing down for this guy. With axe or drumsticks in hand and an open recording studio, Ty is ready and able to lengthen his incredible body of work. Even the indie PR people have trouble keeping track of all the solo, band and side projects.

We get the scoop straight from the SSLYBY camp in a press release that sounds more like a reality show.
