mascisportlandia Watch J Mascis and Dirty Projectors on Portlandia

Late last year, Portlandia announced that J Mascis and members of Dirty Projectors would appear in its upcoming season, joining past musical heavyweights like Eddie Vedder, St. Vincent, and Modest Mouse’s Isaac Brock.

As it turns out, both acts guest on the same episode, airing this Friday. In the clip below, Mascis, the Projectors, and Carrie Brownstein are competing in the “Battle of the Gentle Bands”, who outmaneuver Fred Armisen’s Decemberists-esque group by performing sans microphones as to not harm insects. Only in Portlandia, folks.

The episode airs Friday, January 25th on IFC at 10 p.m. ET. Other notable guests lined up for this season include Roseanne Barr, Juliette Lewis, Patton Oswalt, Rose Byrne, George Wendt, Saturday Night Live’s Bill Hader and Bobby Moynihan, Jim Gaffigan, and Matt Berry.
