Kurt Vile Brings Out J Mascis for 'Colbert' Performance
Kurt Vile released his latest LP b'lieve i'm goin down… earlier this fall, promoting it with a stop by Conan. Last night (December 9), the singer-songwriter took to the late-night television screen again as the musical guest on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
 
During his performance of "Pretty Pimpin,'" Vile got some help courtesy of a special guest appearance from Dinosaur Jr.'s own J Mascis. The alt-rock icon kept it mellow, lurking behind the rest of the band, though he did contribute backing vocals  — and gave Vile some competition in the long hair department.
 
Vile reportedly featured as one of Dinosaur Jr.'s many onstage guests this week during a string of shows at New York's Bowery Ballroom. Watch Vile and Mascis pair up once again in the player below.
 
b'lieve i'm goin down… is out now on Matador.
