When new Sub Pop signees Mister Heavenly played their first show tonight at the Moore, opening for Passion Pit, the source of the most excitement among the throngs of teens was that their bass was being played by Michael Cera, patron saint of the perpetually awkward adolescent.
He's played bass players on film twice in the last two years, so I guess that it makes sense that he'd get around to putting his Sex Bob-omb (and/or Jerk Offs) skills to use on a real stage. I've sent a note to Sub Pop to see if they have the backstory on his spot in the lineup. More on that, and photos from the rest of the show, later tomorrow.
update: Sub Pop's publicity coordinator Bekah Zietz says that "as of right now he is not an official member, just playing with the guys on this tour."
