Some projects Carrie Brownstein has engaged in since Sleater-Kinney stepped out of the indie rock spotlight in the summer of 2006: beginning a blog for NPR, co-writing and co-starring in IFC sketch-comedy show Portlandia, and starting a book, the last of which she wouldn’t discuss when the Voice profiled her earlier this year because to do so would make her “feel guilty about not working on it.” Still, what she’s doing instead—that is, leading a three-chord supergroup pulling in former members of Helium, the Minders, and her old drummer, Janet Weiss—is nothing to feel ashamed about, and tonight that foursome play Bowery Ballroom with Eleanor Friedberger opening.
