Color Me Obsessed 

When: Fri., March 9, 10 p.m. 2012
Price: $6
Color Me Obsessed is the first film to tackle the story of Minneapolis power-pop punks the Replacements. True to the anarchic spirit of the 'Mats — never a band to deliver what is expected — the film manages to work despite severe limitations. The band's former frontman, Paul Westerberg, forbade the use of his image, so Color Me Obsessed features no footage of the Replacements. None of the band's songs or members appear, either. However, much as the band filmed its video for "Bastards of Young" simply by training a camera on a speaker for four minutes, director Gorman Bechard has managed to make art from what might've ended most filmmakers' plans. Bechard speaks with a number of people surrounding the story of the band: contemporaries such as Hüsker Dü's Grant Hart, fans, historians, and Replacements-influenced musicians such as the Hold Steady's Craig Finn. It all unspools at 10 p.m. at Liberty Hall (644 Massachusetts, Lawrence, 785-749-1972). Tickets cost $6.
