Watch Jeff Tweedy on ‘Parks and Recreation’

Back in February, news broke that Jeff Tweedy would guest on an episode of ‘Parks and Recreation’ this season. Last night, the Wilco frontman fell into Pawnee with a hilarious cameo as a former band leader who’s trying to be coaxed out of retirement.

In the above clip from the show, Tweedy plays the onetime leader of a semi-popular group called Land Ho! (we love that exclamation point) that Leslie (Amy Poehler) and Andy (Chris Pratt) try to talk into reforming for a concert to unify their town with nearby Eagleton. They were on the list of dream bands for the concert right after the Beatles and Led Zeppelin.

It’s a pretty funny turn by Tweedy, who greets the question of reuniting with a simple “No.” His deadpan performance against two of the show’s regulars is pretty solid.

He even sings at one point — but it’s not a Wilco song. Instead, he helps Andy — who apparently moonlights as a children’s singer — with an original called ‘Karate Chop Master.’ Tweedy will return to ‘Parks and Recreation’ for the season finale on April 24, along with Yo La Tengo and the Decemberists.
