St. Vincent on Portlandia...
IMAGE

Portlandia is no stranger to indie rock guest stars, and St. Vincent is no stranger to Portlandia, having appeared on the IFC comedy series a few times, most recently this past week's episode. On it Annie Clark plays a singer who must endure exhausting know-it-all Ghavin the "studio guy" (Fred Armisen), who quizes her about her gear and tries to one-up her at every move. (He also annoyed Jack White in S3.) You can watch that (via Stereogum) plus a clip from earlier this season where Carrie Brownstein explains hip hop to Fred, below.

This week's episode of Portlandia features guest appearances by Maya Rudolph and Wilco singer Jeff Tweedy (who is going to be on Parks & Recreation too). It airs Thursday (4/3) at 10 PM EST.

In other news, St. Vincent just got remixed by Darkside. Portlandia video clips below...

So I guess all these appearances confirm that she is dating Carrie Brownstein

Woah ... seriously? Um, or, they're all just friends? Fuck. The level of idiocy on this site never fails to leave me speechless. Wow. Just, wow. Speaking of Ms. Clark, I just saw her play the other night, and per usual, she was beyond fantastic. I've seen her play over the years quite a few times, but her game is on a whole new level right now. She owns the stage. Wearing haute couture, looks that kill and really, beyond all that, her guitar playing simply melts faces. It's a mind fuck to witness live. Don't miss this tour.

She is certainly dating Carrie. They frequented the restaurant where I used to work in Texas. Both very nice ladies.

I saw them at the supermarket I work at and they are definitely into scissoring.
They would come in with all kinds of coupons they cut out.

It makes me happy to think they're dating. I don't know much about Carrie, but Annie is a total sweetheart. Nice ladies deserve nice ladies.

ps: 7:12pm, I think your parents are calling you back upstairs to finish your vegetables before you get back on the computer. Be a good boy, and do as the say.

7:06, was that when she was back home in texas to work on the latest album?

7:24 Maybe, I don't know when St. Vincent was working on her album. I last saw them around Christmas and on several other occasions the past couple of years.

A sketch on a tv show that aired 5 days ago is not news...Why aren't you telling us about what Speedy Ortiz is doing TODAY, bro?

I work at Brooklyn Bowl and saw them a little while back. When Annie took her tongue out of Carrie's throat for a sevond she told me that Armisen is never funny.

7:19 comes off like a homophobe

@7:19 So am I allowed to both support women's rights and be aroused by the idea of those two going down on each other? Does an attraction to lesbian sex make me a misogynist pig? If yes, please fuck yourself, because I am.

THIS IS A STORY ABOUT FRED ARISEN ASSWHIPES

I think that Carrie might be a harder nut to crack but I'm fairly confident that I could turn Annie within 3 days.

St. Vincent is so beautiful.

Was St. Vincent canonized for performing miracles with the hot licks she provokes from her electric guitar? Does her fuzz let the blind see? Do her beats let the lame move? Does her white hair look awesome? The answer is YES to all! YES YES YES!!! Hallelujah, brother! St. Vincent, hosanna in the highest.

Annie and Carrie have been dating since for at least a year.

Where does David Byrne fit into all this?

"Would you rather go back to having to spend time looking for answers to avoid being faced by friends who find your so boring that they need to be on there phones?"

Would you rather go back to the time before that major lobotomy you had, you illiterate moron?

Fred Armisen is as funny as a cellphone.

Hey 2:27, why don't you put some of that infinite information to use and learn how to string a comprehensible fucking sentence together ?

Posted by Anonymous | April 1, 2014 6:39 PM

LOL @ 6:39. BOO YAH!!!

I like how Jack White shows up and says nothing and you never see him again on the episode, it's like "oh he's gonna show up later because he's him and such" but he doesn't. Love Portlandia.
