Taylor’s Team Pick: Sleater-Kinney’s Carrie Brownstein Both Hot and Funny

Carrie Brownstein (former Sleater-Kinney guitarist and all around hot-shit) made a comedy duo with some dude from SNL a million years ago and I didn’t even know about it? Huh? In other news, she’s got a new supergroup going and is writing a book or something. Also she made me gay. Love her.

  1. This is a fantastic pick. I was lucky enough to see Sleater-Kinney live a handful of times. Carrie is an amazing guitarist. Totally looking forward to seeing her again as part of Wild Flag.

  2. WILD FLAG IS THE BEST MUSIC NEWS OF MY POST S-K LIFETIME.
    I hope this is the beginning of Autostraddle talking about Carrie Brownstein waaaayyy more. Augh. All-time crushiest celebrity crush. When I saw them live back in 2003 I just about fainted when she walked onstage. I mean oh my god look at her here for instance:

    (Honestly though I haven’t been too impressed with her comedy. But who cares, I’d watch Carrie Brownstein watching paint dry.)

  3. Just the title of this made me really excited and happy. I have tried so many times to explain my adoration for Carrie Brownstein to my friends none of whom seem to understand why she is so very awesome. I miss Monitor Mix (her blog on NPR), but cannot wait to see Portlandia and Wild Flag. As soon as Wild Flag announce a tour date anywhere near NYC, I will immediately buy a ticket. That concert will rock (not only because of Carrie, but also Mary Timony, Janet Weiss who are awesome musicians too – I’m sure Rebecca is too, I’ve just never heard anything by The Minders).
