Look for the full report from the Toronto Riot Fest for tomorrow’s paper at startribune.com/music. An in-depth, more critically assessed review of the Replacements' set will be posted in the morning and in Tuesday’s paper once I gather my thoughts and clear my lungs from all the dry dust kicked up by moshers during Iggy & the Stooges’ set (a little moshing kicked up during the –‘Mats, too, most significantly in “Takin’ a Ride” and “Tommy Gets His Tonsils Out”)

There’s a pretty thorough play-by play via my Twitter account, too. Although Paul Westerberg forgot the lyrics in two of the songs (“Androgynous” and “I Will Dare” – yeah, what gives on the latter?!), this tweet from early in the show still holds up afterward: “5 songs in, I think I can safely declare that those of you who poo-poohed this can eat crow. Absolutely thrilling.”

Here’s the set list:

Takin’ a Ride  /  I’m in Trouble  /  Favorite Thing  /  Hanging Downtown  /  Color Me Impressed  /  Tommy Gets His Tonsils Out  /  Kiss Me on the Bus  /  Androgynous  /  Achin’ to Be  /  I Will Dare  /  Love You Till Friday  /  Merry Go Round  /  Wake Up /  Borstal Breakout (Sham 69 cover)  /  Little Mascara  /  Left of the Dial  /  Alex Chilton  /  Swingin’ Party  /  Can’t Hardly Wait  /  Bastards of Young        ENCORE: Everything’s Coming Up Roses / I.O.U.
