Portlandia Renewed

The comedy-sketch show Portlandia starring rock guitareste Carrie Brownstein got renewed for a second season.  You can see Brownstein talk to the Oregonian about the renewal here.

If that’s not exciting enough for you, Corin Tucker will be on the show this upcoming Friday.  IFC even has some video.

The Dream of the 90s is alive on cable television

Guitar goddess Carrie Brownstein has had a lot going on lately.  She is in a new supergroup called Wild Flag with Janet Weiss, Mary Timony, and Rebecca Cole.  They’ve been signed to Merge, are touring the west coast, and are recording an album that is scheduled to come out soon.  Outside the realm of music, Brownstein’s new skit show, Portlandia premiered on IFC Friday.  She and Fred Armisen have been doing comedy for years together on the web at Thunderant, but now they’ve made it onto their own slot on cable.

Did you see the premiere? What did you think?
