Sleater-Kinney – Rock Lobster [VIDEO]

Last night at Manhattan’s Terminal 5, Sleater-Kinney vocalist Carrie Brownstein brought out her Portlandia costar Fred Armisen to perform Fred Schneider’s parts in their terrific cover of the 1979 B-52s classic, Rock Lobster. More from Stereogum:

Armisen took the role seriously, banging on a cowbell and wearing a salmon-colored sport coat and falling to the floor and pretending to swim during the “down, down” bit. It looks like it would’ve been really, really fun to be in the room when this was happening, especially when Corin Tucker starts making dolphin noises. I would never quibble with anything this awesome, but could it have been that hard to get the real Fred Schneider? What’s he doing right now, anyway? Also shout out to Transparent, the best TV show that stars Carrie Brownstein.
