This winter, the city of Portlandia is coming to a town near you. As we get ready for the second season of IFC's hit comedy (January 6th!), the stars and creators of "Portlandia," Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, are hitting the road and heading out on a six- city tour.

The tour will feature Fred Armisen, who you may recognize from "Saturday Night Live," and Carrie Brownstein of Wild Flag and Sleater-Kinney 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, including Portland's openly reggae mayor (Kyle MacLachlan, "Desperate Housewives," "Twin Peaks"); Peter and Nance, an overly eco-conscious couple; and Toni and Candice, the shopkeepers of the feminist bookstore, "Women and Women First."

Fred and Carrie will hit Chicago's Hideout on January 18th. Tickets go on sale tomorrow (11/22), at 10AM CST.

In related news, Fred will open up for Wilco at Lincoln Hall on December 18th. Carrie's current band Wild Flag will play Metro on April 5th.
