Jeff Tweedy Made it a Family Affair on Last Night’s ‘Colbert’

It’s hardly Illinois musician Jeff Tweedy’s first time on The Colbert Report, having been a frequent guest with Wilco over the years, but last night marked the guitar player’s first appearance on the show as half of a new father-and-son traveling band. Jeff and son Spencer — wasn’t it only yesterday he was just a tyke knee-slapping to “Heavy Metal Drummer”? showed up on Colbert to promote their new band Tweedy, getting grilled by the host about their “monochromatic denim-scape” and whether or not they could take Billy Ray and Miley Cyrus in a fight (“absolutely not,” the duo concurred).

Watch their interview and a couple live clips (including new single “Low Key”) below, and behold the creepiness of how much Spencer looks like a young Jeff Tweedy. To be fair, it’s not as creepy as how little Jeff currently looks like a young Jeff Tweedy.
