Michael Cera Plays Bass with Mister Heavenly
Newly-formed indie music supergroup Mister Heavenly -- featuring Man Man's Honus Honus, Islands' Nick Thorburn, and Modest Mouse's Joe Plummer -- performed their first show last night, at Seattle's Moore Theater. And they revealed a special surprise fourth member, who certainly improves the band's "super" status: Michael Cera on bass!
Mister Heavenly recently signed to Sub Pop, but Cera has not been confirmed as a full-time member of the band yet.
"As of right now he is not an official member, just playing with the guys on this tour," Sub Pop's publicity coordinator Bekah Zietz told The Stranger.
As an actor, Cera has played bassists in two films, Nick & Nora's Infinite Playlist and Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World. He will reportedly play bass with Mister Heavenly for the rest of their current West Coast tour with Passion Pit.
