<i>Portlandia</i> to Feature St. Vincent, Isaac Brock, Joanna Newsom

As Rolling Stone reports, some huge names in indie rock will make appearances on Portlandia, the show that features the comedy duo of Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, who also plays in Wild Flag.

Eddie Vedder, Steve Jones from the Sex Pistols, Isaac Brock from Modest Mouse, Joanna Newsom, and Annie Clark of St. Vincent are all slated to make appearances on the IFC sketch comedy show, which makes its premiere on Jan. 6. As previously reported, Johnny Marr of The Smiths is also making an appearance on the show.

This isn’t the first time the show has featured some cool guests — James Mercer of The Shins and Colin Meloy of The Decemberists have both made appearances on the show’s first season.
