Cut of the Day: "Bury Our Friends," Sleater-Kinney

It's official, Portland: You can start loving Carrie Brownstein again!

o-sleater-kinney-570

Music
In 2006, when Sleater-Kinney played its final show ever at the Crystal Ballroom, an invisible clock began running, counting down to the legendary Portland-via-Olympia riot grrrls' eventual reunion.

This morning, ...   More

Put a Statuette On It (sigh): Portlandia Earns Two Emmy Nominations

And hey, Grimm got one, too!

Movies & Television
Who cares about the Emmys? Am I right, Portland? We don't even own televisions here! We're all much too busy with intellectual pursuits like reading our neighbor's unpublished autobiographical graphic novel and participating in physical activities such as unicycle jousting to devote time to things as frivolous as sitcoms, serial dramas, reality programs and whatever the hell Hemingway and Gellhorn ...   More

portlandia-the-tour-kicks-off-portland-ifc-fred-armisen-carrie-brownstein

Arts & Books
Image courtesy of IFC's Portlandia BlogThe premise is, I suppose, simple: Take Portland on a tour, not merely in the pages of magazines and dailies, but actually as a place. Who says one city can’t visit another? But then of course, it is not so much Portland that is touring in live form to Seattle and New York and Boston (and also at the tour’s kickoff at the Hollywood Theater this past Tuesday, ...   More

rsz_1wildflagdougfir

Music
Carrie Brownstein was really holding back on the spinny arm thing. You know, her little Townshend twirl which, in reviewing her new band Wild Flag’s show at the Doug Fir, I am obligated to mention she does better than anyone.The restraint was admirable, the mark of a true show womyn. She wanted to go for it, you could tell. Right from the start, a stiff rendition of “Electric Band” that could’ve ...   More
