Portlandia Star Carrie Brownstein on Girls Rock Camps

POSTED ON 05/09/11
In This Episode

In addition to starring in the IFC comedy Portlandia, Carrie is also a musician (she was the lead guitarist for Sleater-Kinney and now plays with WIld Flag) and she is a huge advocate for rock camps for girls. Check out our links for more information about the phenomenal success of Girls Rock Camps —there’s even a movie (the producers lent us the great footage you see in this episode — so go see the feature film —it’s great!).

If you’re interested in helping your kids learn about music at home, check out the new PBS KIDS show, Chuck Vanderchuck’s “Something Something” Explosion. You’ll find activities and games that can get them ready for rock camp, or start rocking on their own!
