Carrie Brownstein is best known as the guitarist and vocalist in the now-defunct Portland, Oregon-based band Sleater-Kinney.  In 2006 she earned a spot on the Rolling Stone readers list of the 25 “Most Underrated Guitarists of All-Time” as the highest-rated woman!

She is also staring in a new show, that we think is sure to be a hit on IFC called “Portlandia”.

Carrie called us here at The Backstage Beat and told us a little about “Portlandia”, her favorite episodes and what she is up to with her new band, Wild Flag.
