The T-shirts at the State Fair are always an interesting referendum on the public’s tastes, interests and general attitudes about life in Minnesota. This year, with no hotly contested elections or ballot initiatives, and the relative demise of the Tea Party, the T-shirt landscape seems much less politically charged than it has in years past.

On the eve of the Replacements’ much-anticipated reunion performance, a special director’s cut of the documentary Color Me Obsessed will be shown at the Parkway Theater on Sept. 12. Also featuring live music and a memorabilia raffle, this fandom spectacular has been deemed “All Replacements Eve.”

This morning, Bob Dylan announced a fall tour that will stop in Minneapolis for three shows at the Orpheum Theatre: Nov. 4, 5, and 6. Tickets, which go on sale Sept. 6, are priced at $55 to $135.
The shows, at a venue formerly part-owned by the Minnesota native, are Dylan’s first Minnesota shows since last summer’s Americanarama tour made stops in St. Paul and Duluth. Yesterday, it was announced that Dylan will release an exhaustive, “complete” version of his Basement Tapes recordings made with the Band in 1967.
