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.
