For 'Portlandia' fans, there's always room for Jello Biafra



If people are truly committed to keeping Portland weird, then the best way to do it is have former Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra guest-star on Portlandia.

Currently fronting the band Guantanamo School of Medicine, Biafra will appear on a yet-to-be-announced episode of the IFC series in this coming season, which begins Feb. 27, according to

Biafra (born Eric Boucher) fronted the Dead Kennedys from 1978 to 1986, when legal disputes over royalty payments and other directions on music usage fractured the band for good. Bandmembers East Bay Ray, Klaus Flouride and D. H. Peligro continue today to tour under the name Dead Kennedys with Ron "Skip" Greer handling vocals.
