Portlandia: 20 Exclusive Behind the Scenes Photos—Shot by Carrie Brownstein!

We gave former Sleater-Kinney guitarist and current alt-comedienne Carrie Brownstein a camera to document the left-of-center oddballs who populate Portlandia, IFC's hilarious sketch show, back for a second season in January. Brownstein and co-star Fred Armisen (of Saturday Night Live) may look normal (see photo #1), but tune in to see them dreadlocked, mustached, and defying gravity.

Season two of Portlandia premieres January 6th on IFC.

I wish that's how we ended every day—stage-diving and crowd-surfing. That's me as Nance, who like I said is married to Peter, and in order to get to work faster, the couple decides to crowd-surf. I can't give too much away, but they're heading toward the front of this large line in the fastest way they know how, which is to relive the early-'90s grunge movement and crowd-surf their way to victory. There's a certain wildness to season one that we tried to carry over to season two, but I think season two feels more cohesive overall. The show is coming into its own. A lot of our characters are just extensions or enhanced versions of who Fred and I are. Even the most absurd or outlandish characters stem from some part of us.
