10 Awesome and Surprising Musician Cameos

Mastodon On the Set

We all love a good cameo. With Sunday's episode of Game of Thrones we got to see heavy metal super stars Mastodon [SPOILER ALERT] act as Wildlings, and then die, and then come back as ice zombie Wildlings. Since the band are self-professed GoT fans, they seemed positively tickled pink by the personal invitation from show runner Dan Weiss to don the costumes and personae of Westeros's neighbors to the North, particularly as they contributed to the Game of Thrones mixtape Catch the Throne Vol. 2. Mastodon's joyous (just look at those grins) guest spot was hard to pick out in the utter melee of the episode, so this still is credited to HBO and Helen Sloan, and now we are looking back at other fantastic (or fantastically bad) musician cameos in film and television.

It's almost April, which will hopefully bring some spring weather (without the relapses into winter that filled up March here in CT). April will also bring some pretty great live events, plus April Fools Day, National Welding Month and National Karaoke Week (my favorite!). Check out the preview of April live events below!


Coachella: For the first time, the festival will span two weekends, starting April 13 and going through April 22. Top headliners include Radiohead, David Guetta, Florence and the Machine, Gotye, and Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers go back on tour

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers announced a slate of new tour dates today, including eight in the United States. The stateside tour will begin on April 19 in Broomfield, CO, and wrap up on May 5 in Austin, TX. Petty and co. will also play a set at next year's New Orleans Jazz Festival. After they're finished in the U.S., the band will head to Europe.

The band didn't give any indications that more tour dates will be announced. There isn't a lot of leeway between the U.S. and European dates to add more, which is probably why, but it's still a possibility. If not, perhaps more will be scheduled after the band is done in Europe; stay tuned for more information.
