Portlandia

Fred Armisen (Saturday Night Live) and Carrie Brownstein (Wild Flag, Sleater kinney) from IFC's hit original comedy Portlandia are embarking on a unique six city tour bringing the romanticized and dreamy rendering of Portland, OR to life for fans across the country. "Portlandia: The Tour" will feature Armisen and Brownstein, the co-creators, writers and stars of Portlandia, performing live music, presenting sneak-peek clips from the show's second season and sharing personal anecdotes about the creation and inspiration of Portlandia and its variety of eccentric characters. "Portlandia: The Tour" begins in Portland, OR, on Tuesday, December 27, 2011.
The tour ends on Saturday, January 21 at Bowery Ballroom which is one day after it hits Music Hall of Williamsburg (on January 20). It also stops in Seattle, San Francisco, LA and Chicago. "Tickets on sale tomorrow."

Bowery tickets, as of this post, are already on Ticketmaster and go on sale at 10am Tuesday EST. Chicago tickets go on sale the same time, but CST.

The Chicago show, which is at the Hideout, happens exactly a month after Fred opens for Wilco at Lincoln Hall in the same city.

For people who live there that Williamsburg show is going to be like looking in a mirror

Can we expect a short Modern Weepers set as warm up?

at the right angle, Carrie Brownstein looks like joey ramone.

There are hitting up the mecca spots for the tour: Portland, San Fran, Chicago, and Brooklyn. Ironic?

Expressing your anger for a TV show is important work, people. Stay angry! It's sexy. Like a naked Carrie Brownstein.

bringing the unfunny onstage.

Brownstein is a rocker turned wanna-be comedian.
Armisen is a comedian turned wanna-be rocker.

All respective parties should stick to what they're good at.

Thanks asshole - I just totally lost my buzz.

way to go CBrownstein! Way to go go and capitalize on your star-dumb status!! Only one's who will benifit are those involved with this weak sitcom. One season is all what is / was needed...second season will just be a skip in the same record.

I'm not feeling the ANGER here, people. C'mon, you can all do better than this!!

anyone know what music brownstein is gonna play? can we expect sleater kinney/wild flag? or is there some portlandia music that i don't know about? because if it's the former, i'm 100% there.

Yeah, maybe at the angle called "anti-semitism." Rim shot! It's actually true.

Posted by Anonymous | November 21, 2011 2:32 PM

2:09, actually they are both on the same trajectory of rocker to wanna-be comedian. Fred just got there first.

So I can pay $25 for these people to tell me the same bad jokes about hipsters that my friends and I tell each other for free?

Sign me up.

I'm gonna make a sketch comedy series called "Williamsburgia." All I need is an alternative-type female foil to co-star. Any takers?

Posted by Anonymous | November 21, 2011 4:07 PM


using "alternative-type"

you are already off to a bad start...

Posted by Anonymous | November 21, 2011 4:39 PM

Fred was a drummer in a great band called TRENCHMOUTH. If you're too young to remember them, then your opinion doesn't matter and I don't care what you think of Carrie, Fred or Portlandia.

Posted by Anonymous | November 21, 2011 4:41 PM

I doubt most people old enough have even heard of that band anyway. It sounds like you just looked this up and posted something along the lines of an I-have-indie-cred-and-you-don't statement.
And to be honest, nobody's opinion really matters. Not as anything that will majorly affect something.

Enjoy life!

4:41 is on, like, a PERSONAL level with these people

Posted by Anonymous | November 21, 2011 4:54 PM

I'm old enough and I don't remember Trenchmouth.

My vague recollection was that that they maybe were herky jerky post rock bullshit

Sorry, but if that "Dream of the 90's" skit was the funniest thing to happen on Portlandia, then that speaks volumes about how mediocre it really is.

1 out of 1,000,000 must of known Trenchmouth at the time.

@1007 the only people who knew trenchmouth were the ones who knew them personally. so yeah, that sounds about right.

Definitely going to this. I like comedy.

Back in my day we'd fire up the old Victorola and then go into town to the malt shop for a quick 23-skidoo.

I predict that the new BV-annointed hot spot will be Ames, Iowa. Ames is a mecca of indie alt-country-punk-noise-roots-post-grunge, and the girls are all corn fed.

You heard it here first.

Hey 4:42... I'm in isle 7. Would you mind if I reach over your shoulder with a pita triangle in my hand and dip a few in?

Posted by Anonymous | November 22, 2011 5:22 PM

You flagged or held my comment when I had good things to say about Portlandia, although critical, mentioned Trenchmouth playing with Nation Of Ulysses, and pointed out the irony in it all with Portlandia in Williamsburg being as Carrie Brownsteins band is rather hipsterish.
Guess I needed some infantile words about hummus.

^ your just mad you ain't in isle 6 or 7.
We got the hummus. You don't. And it upsets you. I understand.
