The Replacements

A week after teasing fans with the first footage of The Replacements rehearsals now under way in Minneapolis — a mere 9 seconds of “Alex Chilton” shot from a different room through a half-open sliding-glass door — the ‘Mats today did a bit better, posting to Facebook 19 seconds of Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson ripping through “Favorite Thing.”

This time, you can actually see them, although it remains a mystery who else will be in the band when they perform three Riot Fest headlining slots in Toronto, Chicago and Denver this August and September.

The Riot Fest appearances will be the first ‘Mats performances in 22 years.

Check out the short clip below (and someone, tell ’em to flip the iPhone sideways):
