As is the case these days, it’s rare you hear about Paul Westerberg in the news, especially anything having to do with live performances. But Minneapolis’ finest decided to break his thick shell yesterday, when he performed two songs at Minnesota Twins’ stadium, Target Field. The catch? It was only to a handful of folks.

Our hats are off to Scott Sloan and Steve LaBate, the folks behind the forthcoming documentary, 40 Nights of Rock & Roll, which has already captured the likes of Jody Stephens (drummer for Big Star), Reverend Horton Heat, and Jonsi — all at various locations across the nation. With Westerberg, he spoke about the state of rock ‘n’ roll, digressed on baseball, and performed (in a dugout, mind you) both last year’s “Dangerous Boys” and Eventually favorite, “Time Flies Tomorrow”.

The off-the-charts documentary filmmakers continue their tour this month and next, hitting up Drive-By Truckers at Sasquatch, Of Montreal in Dallas, TX, and plenty more. Interested to see who else? Follow ’em at their official site.

Color me impressed.
