Members of the Shins, Decemberists and Sleater-Kinney Play Imaginary Rock Band on 'Portlandia'


In this skit from Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein's hilarious IFC comedy series Portlandia, the Shins' James Mercer, the Decemberists' Colin Meloy and Brownstein's Sleater-Kinney bandmate Corin Tucker turn up to portray the glamorous fictional indie band Echo Echo. The group attempt to check in to the impossibly hip Deuce Hotel in the bit – but don't count seeing any of the usual clichés about rock stars and hotel rooms.
