Color Me Obsessed

Color Me Obsessed, a film about The Replacements, will be screening at a number of film festivals and other venues this year and next year. The film was produced by Gorman Bechard (of What We Were Thinking Films) and features interviews with Colin Meloy of The Decemberists, Craig Finn of The Hold Steady, Tommy Ramone, members of Husker Du, Robert Christgau, Jim Derogatis, Ira Robbins, Tom Arnold, and others. The film will premiere in NYC on November 16 and 17 at Bowery Electric.

We're excited to announce that, along with Bowery Electric, we're presenting MATS CITY, a Replacements tribute show that will take place at Bowery Electric after each screening. The show, which will be hosted by Matt Pinfield features a number of guests including Brian Fallon (Gaslight Anthem), Jesse Malin, Steve Wynn, Ted Leo, Chuck Ragan, Charlie Mars, Dave Hause (The Loved Ones), Matthew Ryan, Willie Nile, Tommy Ramone, Alejandro Escovedo, Dave Pulkingham, Walter Lure, Kevn Kinney, Don DiLego, Joe D'Urso, Danny Sage, and Nicole Atkins, and many more to be announced. Those singers will be backed by a band which includes Todd Youth, Matt Romano, and Johnny T. Tickets for the 11/16 and the 11/17 shows are on sale now (ticket options include movie only and show only, and both). A portion of the proceeds will go to Musicians On Call. Note that exact lineups for each date are TBA. Some performers may only be playing one day.

A list of cities the film will screen in and teaser video below...

Shocker to see Jesse Malin on these bills, am I right?

Nah, Clash were daddies with big dicks compared to Replacements.

OK, after this, can we call a moratorium on movies about bands?

So it's just a documentary about people who like the Replacements?

Ted Leo baby!!

did they clear the rights to use The Replacements music? I thought I read that was holding up this release... though I could be making that up

Why is Charlie Mars playing this?

I don't really care what 2nd and 3rd tier musicians think of the Replacements.

Would love to be able to see this without all the extra bells and whistles.

2:15 = a typical liberal idiot who cannot tolerate opinions other than it's own. cling to that hope and change little baby, there are many many more of us about to piss on your face for your intolerance.

why would anyone go for the movie only option?

As much as I love the mats... were they involved in this at all? or even interviewed?

FUCK U

I'd choose movie only because I love the Replacements and don't give a fuck about Matt Pinfield, Jesse Malin, Chuck Ragan, et al.

Posted by Anonymous | September 20, 2011 3:26 PM

How has Nicole Atkins gotten a permanent place on the tribute concert circuit? Obviously her music is atrocious, so that should diminish any appeal.

Wow, good one. What does that even mean?!

Posted by Anonymous | September 20, 2011 3:44 PM

Great band but it sounds like this is just a bunch of chin-stroking by non-entities. Sorry Meh, not gonna check out this trash.

Posted by Joe's Star Lounge | September 20, 2011 3:46 PM

Yeah I'm gonna hold off on going to this on the off chance that maybe the Shins are playing somewhere that night.

willing to bet 90% on this board jumped to youtube and was like: "The Replacements"

ha,ha..bunch of poseurs.

The Replacements weren't that good. Punk Rock for '80s mall kids with denim jackets and teased hair.

There isn't a rock band from the last 25 years that doesn't owe it's balls to the Mats.

I find it amazing that persons who clearly consider themselves schooled in music seem to have no clue. That's okay though, I get it, you don't, and that's exactly who the Replacements were.

"There isn't a rock band from the last 25 years that doesn't owe it's balls to the Mats."

Maybe the most ignorant statement that I've ever seen on BV. And that's saying A LOT.

Posted by Anonymous | September 21, 2011 9:55 AM

The Replacements didn't stand around with their arms folded, they had no silly facial hair, and they weren't asleep when they played live...how could a hipster ever begin to "get" that?

Posted by Anonymous | September 21, 2011 9:55 AM

9:55 (a) aren't you late for your english lit class? Fucking 17 year old's...

Posted by Anonymous | September 21, 2011 10:05 AM

Wow ... hipsters from the Midwest really do get their panties in a bunch whenever anyone starts talking smack about the Replacements! I mean, sure they were from the Midwest too - I get it - by jeepers, they were a band, a good band, at a time of many other good bands (maybe better bands, who am I to say) that seemed to concentrate on the coasts (as they always do ... Husker Du is the exception that proves the rule there). Next thing we'll all be reading about how great corn is, and why the Mississippi and Missouri River floods really mater more than hurricanes.

I guarantee that I'm older than you 10:05, and I think you are a buffoon and intolerant of others' opinions. You are a child, and you are looking for a slap with that silly holier-than-thou posture. Now, get your own attitude in check, sonny.

10:29 is probably 25 and thinks he's oh, so mature. Probably goes to community school and wants to be a teacher..

Posted by Anonymous | September 21, 2011 11:58 AM

9:55 is you think that statement is the most ignorant thing you've ever read on BV:

1. you know nothing about the last 25 years of rock history (though I'm sure you think you do)

2. you obviously don't read a lot of BV comments.

Wow, googled the film, came here, read some really ridiculous comments and thought of this quote:

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated.”

Got nothing good to say? Make your own damn movie. 'Night.
