Although the Replacements’ short-lived reunion ended in 2015, since then their founding bassist Tommy Stinson hasn’t slowed a beat, re-forming his 1990s outfit Bash & Pop and keeping busy with solo work and side projects. Always happy to lend a hand to local causes in his adopted home town of Hudson, the rocker is sponsoring Safe at Home, a pair of live-music events that will take place in the Columbia County city next month to benefit the Hudson Little League.
On May 5 at 12pm, Stinson’s acoustic-electric duo Cowboys in the Campfire will perform with Elvis Perkins, Brian Dewan, Chops & Sauerkraut, Magic Stones, Rebecca Bauer, and special guests at Hudson Brewing Company. Tickets are $15. For more information, call (518) 697-5400 or visit hudsonbrew.com.
On May 12 at 5pm, Bash & Pop will perform with Alejandro Escovedo, Elvis Perkins, Jesse Malin, Dust Bowl Faeries, and special guests at Club Helsinki. Tickets are $25 and $35. For more information, call (518) 282-4800 or visit helsinkihudson.com.
