More than most North American cities, Montreal gets it right when it comes to hosting music festivals.

Last month, during the second Coachella weekend, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong joined the reunited Replacements onstage.

Replacements Heading Home For First Headlining Show In 23 Years

I don't know if you've ever talked to a middle-aged Midwestern indie rocker about the Replacements, but it's like walking into a Pentecostal church and asking people there how they feel about Jesus.

Watch The Replacements Rehearse “Can’t Hardly Wait” In The Studio

The reunited Replacements are one of my most anticipated acts at this weekend's Coachella festivities, not because I'm hoping to hear new music but because I've never had the pleasure of seeing them bash out the old stuff. So it delights me to witness Paul Westerberg and the boys rehearsing 1987's classic "Can't Hardly… More »
