St. Vincent on Portlandia...
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...
