Jeff Tweedy to Guest Star on Portlandia
Jeff Tweedy will appear on tonight’s episode of IFC’s Portlandia. The Wilco frontman will join Maya Rudolph and folk duo Tuck & Patti as guests stars for the episode, which apparently deals with a number of music-related themes.
Tweedy will not be the first musician to make a cameo on the show, as Sarah McLachlan, Jack White, Aimee Mann, the Decemberists’ Colin Meloy, The Shins’ James Mercer, Modest Mouse’s Isaac Brock and many more have all appeared on the program. Additionally, Portlandia‘s Carrie Brownstein made a name for herself as a member of Sleater-Kinney, while her co-star Fred Armisen can now count bandleader for Late Night with Seth Meyers as one of his musical credits.
As previously reported, Tweedy is also scheduled to join The Decemberists and Yo La Tengo on the upcoming season finale of Parks & Recreation.
