Watch Yo La Tengo, Jeff Tweedy, Decemberists, Ginuwine, & Letters To Cleo On Parks And Rec’s Season Finale
Last night, the great NBC sitcom Parks And Recreation ended its sixth season with an hour-long finale. All season, the show has been building up to the Pawnee Unity Concert, an effort to bring the show’s town of Pawnee, Indiana after it merged with Eagleton, its neighboring rival. And so the show went out big, loading it up with musician guest stars: Yo La Tengo (as Bobby Knight Ranger), the Decemberists, Tom Haverford favorite Ginuwine, Ben Wyatt favorite Letters To Cleo, and former Andy Dwyer bandmate Jeff Tweedy. Michelle Obama is in there somewhere, too. Watch the full episode below.
As the Matablog points out, the Yo La Tengo/Amy Poehler connection goes way back. Poehler posed for the cover of the band’s “You Can Have It All” single way back in 2000, before she was on Saturday Night Live.
