In one of the century’s best Saturday Night Live sketches, Fred Armisen played a dad who reunited his old teenage hardcore band, which also featured Dave Grohl at his daughter’s wedding. That’s the same basic idea behind a sketch from Armisen’s show Portlandia, which will being its final season tonight (Jan. 18). As previously announced, the sketch features a few punk legends — Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic, Henry Rollins, and Fugazi drummer Brendan Canty.
In the sketch, Armisen’s Spyke character reunites his old band Riot Spray, but it goes in some different directions. Bruno Mars figures in heavily.
