Tonight Is Your Chance To See Michael Cera (Yes, the Actor!) Play a Real-Life Indie-Rocker

Michael Cera is this dude's name

This criterion would have made a fantastic addition to our investigation into what makes a "supergroup": Your impromptu bassist is a simmering teen hearthrob of the aw-shucks indie variety.

Or, hell: Your impromptu bassist is freaking Michael Cera

See him play a rock star in real life tonight, San Francisco. With a "supergroup."

We're not even close to kidding.

According to Seattle's the Stranger, and the indie Eye of Sauron Pitchfork, Cera is playing bass for Mister Heavenly (a new project from members of Modest Mouse, Islands, and Man Man) on the new band's first West Coast tour.

Mister Heavenly hits Cafe Du Nord tonight, and though Cera isn't a permanent member, he'll be on the four-string, according to a spokesperson for Mister Heavenly's label, Sub Pop.

Here's a video of what it looked like last night in Portland:

Still waiting for word on whether Cera will also be signing your DVD copies of Juno.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
