J Mascis Appears on Portlandia

Who knew J Mascis could act?

The Dinosaur Jr. frontman has appeared on several soundtracks, but fans can see him on the small screen this week when he appears on Fred Armison and Carrie Bronsteain’s Portlandia on IFC.  The avant-garde channel has already made Mascis’ clip available, as he takes part in a “Battle of the Gentle Bands” – quite a change from the typically bombastic Dinosaur Jr. style.

Watch Mascis in action below.

In other Dinosaur Jr. news, the band recently joining NPR’s World Cafe to talk about their history and their new album I Bet on Sky while also playing a three-song set.

You can listen to the session here and head over to Dinosaur Jr.’s official website for more information.
