All week, Dinosaur Jr. have been playing every night at New York’s Bowery Ballroom and welcoming a parade of special guests to the stage. One of those guests is kindred spirit Kurt Vile, who’s shown up a couple of times. And last night, the same night that Dino Jr. wrapped up their seven-night stand, frontman J Mascis repaid the favor. Vile played “Pretty Pimpin,” the single from his b’lieve i’m goin down… album, on the Late Show With Stephen Colbert. Mascis didn’t add any of his guitar wizardry to the song, though that would’ve been cool. Instead, he sang backup. That worked out fine, since Vile brought plenty of his own guitar wizardry. Watch the performance below.
B’lieve i’m goin down… is out now on Matador.
