It's the sixth season of the post-ironic sketch comedy starring Sleater-Kinney's Carrie Brownstein and SNL alum Fred Armisen already! The first episode premireMaybe someone's pregnant. Maybe somebody gets a man-bun. Maybe somebody develops a man-bun-cutting drone. Maybe Danzig gets drunk with Fred Armisen. I don't know, like you, I haven't seen it yet.

I, personally, enjoy the show because it assuages my hipster guilt to be able to poke fun at mustache-having, indie-band-loving, sailor-tattooed folks, like myself. We're all just looking for some authenticity anyway, baby.

And support local hipsters. 

Below is a Season Six synopsis with Brownstein and Armisen.
