As Portlandia edges closer to its final season, fans can probably expect to see plenty of celebrity cameos. In December, Run the Jewels popped up to debate marketing strategies for their upcoming album; on last night’s episode, Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy made an appearance.

Tweedy provided a pre-recorded testimonial on behalf of a sleazy music copyright lawyer (played by Fred Armisen), whose forte is suing the hell out of just about anyone — including Bruce Springsteen and Radiohead. “It turns out he owns the key of G, which has made life very difficult for me as a songwriter,” Tweedy says of Armisen’s character. “He’s just one step ahead of you at every turn.”
