While you were eating leftovers on Friday, Portlandia star Carrie Brownstein was getting the band back together.

When Pearl Jam stopped over in Portland, Ore., Carrie hit the stage with her Sleater-Kinney bandmates Janet Weiss and Corin Tucker. The alt-rock heroes performed together for the first time since 2006, much to the delight of fans, joining their old friends Pearl Jam (who they toured with in 2005) on stage at the city’s Moda Center for a cover of Neil Young’s “Rockin’ In The Free World.”

Watch Carrie interview Pearl Jam about their latest record on IFC.com.
