On November 20th, 1987, Alex Chilton played at Maxwell’s! This wasn’t just any Maxwell’s gig, though, as Chilton was by Paul Westerberg of The Replacements for part of his set! Replacements fans are well aware of Paul Westerberg’s affinity for Chilton, as The Replacements’ famous song “Alex Chilton” was the stand out track on their 1987 album, Pleased To Meet Me. I’m actually not sure of the logistics of this live collaboration because The Replacements had a show on the same night at The Beacon Theater in Manhattan. I’m guessing Paul hopped into a cab and rushed through the Lincoln Tunnel right after their set at the Beacon. If anyone has any information, please let me know!
