Craig Finn, Tad Kubler & friends @ Bowery Electric last night

Though Brian Fallon cancelled, there was still plenty of talent to go around at last night's 1st-of-three BrooklynVegan-sponsored Replacements tribute shows at Bowery Electric. The Hold Steady's Craig Finn & Tad Kubler performed a cover of "Within Your Reach" which you can watch below (courtesy of jukeboxgraduate) along with a video of the encore performance of "Bastards of Young" that had Craig Finn, Titus Andronicus's Patrick Stickles, Jesse Malin, Tommy Ramone and others all on stage together.

If you missed the show, you have two more chances to experience it tonight (11/17). The early show is sold out though, but tickets are still available for the late one. Tonight's guests will not include Craig, but you will get:

Alex Levy
Anthony D'Amato
Danny Sage (D Generation)
Dave Hause (The Loved Ones)
Don DiLego & Bree Sharp (Beautiful Small Machines)
Jesse Malin
John Eddie
John Gallagher (American Idiot)
Matt Pinfield (MTV's 120 Minutes)
Matt Sweeney
Nicole Atkins
Paul Bearer (Sheer Terror)
Ted Leo
Tommy Ramone
Walter Lure (Johnny Thunders' Heartbreakers)

Meanwhile Craig Finn has announced a solo tour in support of his upcoming album which he also posted a song from. No NYC dates for now, but you can see all the other dates, listen to his new song and watch the videos from the Replacements event, below...

Guns 'n Roses play the Izod tonight, so there's an outside chance Tommy could make it there for the late show.

Considering Axl and the Hired Guns probably won't hit the stage until the midnight, that is highly doubtful.

Does Bowery Electric have a coat check?

Man, that's bad. Its like bad karaoke with a middle-aged balding guy in a too-tight jacket (nice gut!) trying to re-live his youth. Sad.

Any reports from people who were there? Video looks a bit cringeworthy.

I was there. Nothing was cringeworthy. The audience was definitely made up of longtime 'mats fans. The songs Craig chose weren't all that sonorous to begin with. Other singers came up, and absolutely killed with their songs.
