watch Kurt Vile play Carrie Brownstein’s in-house roadie on ‘Portlandia’
Portlandia is currently in its eighth and final season, and keeping with the show's tradition of featuring prominent indie rock musicians, the series' most recent episode features a guest spot from Kurt Vile. In a clip from an upcoming episode, Fred Armisen surprises Carrie Brownstein with an extreme home makeover tailored to her love of music, which includes a strange, guitar-themed sculpture, a huge Chrissie Hynde poster, a recreation of a dirty venue restroom, and Brownstein's own in-house roadie, played by Kurt. The entire clip is hilariously bizarre, and you can watch it below.
In case you missed it, Kurt Vile and Courtney Barnett recently put out the documentary 'Friends of Wonder,' which focuses on the recently-renovated Loew's Theater in Jersey City, and their November 2017 show at the venue.
