Replacements doc screening/director Q&A at the Earl

With Color Me Obsessed, fiction author and director Gorman Bechard has crafted a documentary film that’s a bit of a format buster. It’s an oral history that tells the story of Minneapolis’ quintessential rock ‘n’ roll fuckups the Replacements through the eyes of the fans, friends, and those who were there — it's a film about the Replacements that doesn’t feature any of the members of the Replacements, and not a whole lot of their music, either.

In lieu of any heated rants from Paul Westerberg, Bob Stinson, and the rest of the ‘Mats, we get testimonials and recollections by the likes of Colin Meloy (the Decemberists), rock critics Legs McNeil and Robert Christgau, and a few actors including George Wendt and Dave Foley (The Kids in the Hall). At just more than two hours long the film drags on a bit, and when the credits are rolling you’ll need to put Tim and/or Let It Be on the turntable for a couple spins just to get your real fix.

Local 'Mats cover band Dogbreath (featuring members of the Pinx, Young Antiques, Bitch, Gonzo Orchestra, and Sodajerk) closes the the show after a 15-minute Q&A session Bechard.

$10. 8 p.m. The Earl, 488 Flat Shoals Ave. 404-522-3950.
