The Decemberists, Yo La Tengo & Ginuwine For 'Parks And Recreation'

(Radio.com) Leslie Knope wants to officially bring the towns of Eagleton and Pawnee together with a unity concert. And she seems to have found the perfect acts to do so.

According to the A.V. Club, the season finale of Parks and Recreation will feature appearances from The Decemberists, Yo La Tengo-playing a Night Ranger cover-and Ginuwine. Yes, Ginuwine, Donna's cousin and one of Tom Haverford's oh no, no no's, which refers to a list of things he feels one should know before becoming his girlfriend, Ginuwine falling under No. 3 on the list "loving '90s R&B," will be making a stop in Pawnee.

"It was really crazy," said Parks and Rec creator, Michael Schur. "We basically threw a rock concert, with a giant stage and a thousand extras. Jeff Tweedy did some songs, as did the Decemberists and Ginuwine. Also, Letters To Cleo played, which makes Ben Wyatt extremely happy."

Ben, played by Adam Scott, has been known to bust out the Letters to Cleo t-shirt in good times and in bad times or whenever he wants to work on claymation movies. Fun tidbit, Mark Rivers, the guy who's written all of the songs featured on Parks And Rec used to play with Letters To Cleo. Rivers is also the drummer in Andy's band, Mouse Rat. more on this story
