Former Replacement takes it down a notch for acoustic in-store performance

There is a fair argument that the only bands worth a damn are the Rolling Stones and the Replacements. I can see the point, and I’m not going to disagree. Hence the excitement at catching the latter’s former teenage bass player Tommy Stinson at my neighborhood record store.

Stinson has long since carved out a post-Mats career for himself with the likes of little bands like Guns N’ Roses and Soul Asylum, as well as his own gigs with Bash & Pop and as a solo artist. This time around, he is touring as Cowboys in the Campfire with fellow guitarist Chip Roberts. These shows have traditionally been low-key affairs, skipping the club scene for everything from record stores and cafes to the South Philly Van Club and a Texas ranch normally reserved for weddings. That approach hints at how rock ‘n’ roll you can expect it to get. It is two dudes well over 40, Stinson playing acoustic and Roberts playing electric, casually traipsing through the sort of songs you write with friends while sitting around a literal campfire: warm, convivial, maybe even a little sappy, but a hell of a lot of fun. (Don’t miss it).

Tommy Stinson & Chip Roberts’ Cowboys in the Campfire

10 p.m. Friday, Siberia Lounge (2227 St. Claude Ave.), tickets at the door

Tommy Stinson earned his rock ‘n’ roll bona fides as the bassist in the Replacements, the scrappy Minneapolis quartet that blazed a boozy trail in the ‘80s as a garage band with a finely honed pop sense. He also served a stint as bassist and musical director for Guns ‘N Roses, before singer Axl Rose reunited with original bassist Duff McKagan. On New Year’s Eve, Stinson joined Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, the E Street Band’s Steven Van Zandt and Blondie’s Clem Burke for an all-star version of the Replacements’ “Color Me Impressed” at a bar in Manhattan. Stinson is far less loud in his country-minded acoustic collaboration with guitarist Chip Roberts, a project they call Cowboys in the Campfire. They’ll hold court at Siberia on Friday.

Firebrand garage punk Tommy Stinson – he of both Replacements AND Guns N’ Roses ill-repute – rolled through the City Beautiful last year with his culty early-’90s project Bash & Pop, amply proving that he had lost none of the grit that made him such a unique figure in the American alternative rock landscape. Something about Orlando must have agreed with him, because he’s coming through town again almost a year later with his Cowboys in the Campfire duo with Chip Roberts. It’s the polar opposite of GNR’s stadium bloat or the reunion nostalgia circuit: a beyond low-key romp through record stores, gallery spaces and sundry nonconventional venues, where Stinson and Roberts will casually workshop new songs from a forthcoming album. This is one of two Florida shows, and you get to shop for records before and after the music. Let’s ramble, ramblers.
