After being banned from Rockefeller Center in 1986 for performing drunk on SNL, The ‘Mats were back on network television last night on Jimmy Fallon. They sounded like the Replacements. It was awesome. It was noisy but sharp. Frontman Paul Westerberg forgot some of the words, and despite usually not giving a shit, seemed happy to be on TV again. They play at the Forest Hills Tennis Stadium with The Hold Steady and Deer Tick in New York September 19th.
