The Decemberists, Yo La Tengo to Join Jeff Tweedy on Parks and Recreation
As previously reported, Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy will appear on the season finale of Parks and Recreation on April 24. Joining the Wilco frontman will also be The Decemberists and Yo La Tengo, who will also take part in the “unity concert” Amy Poehler’s character (Leslie Knope) is organizing to unify the towns of Pawnee and Eagleton.
Tweedy will play the former lead singer of Land Ho!, a band who was “once very popular in Indiana.” Yo La Tengo landed the role of a Night Ranger cover band, “Bobby Knight Ranger” (named after the legendary Indiana basketball coach). The group will perform Night Ranger’s classic, “Sister Christian.”
No word yet on the possibility of a Duke Silver sit-in at the unity concert.
