Watch Candace from ‘Portlandia’ Interview J. Mascis


There’s something you don’t know about Candace, the co-owner of Portlandia’s Women & Women First bookstore: She moonlights as a music journalist. And you know what? She’s kind of a big deal. In the clip below, Fred Armisen’s character interviews the one and only J. Mascis, of Dinosaur Jr. and an endless parade of side projects — a man who isn’t known for his enthusiasm for talking to the press. Next time we’re in a position to chat with a notoriously uncommunicative musician, we’ll be sure to embrace her technique and act even more awkward than he does. Hell, maybe we’ll even wear a gray wig and shout at passing cars.
