As we previously reported, season two of IFC’s Portlandia—which will feature guest appearances from the likes of Eddie Vedder and Joanna Newsom, among others—will premiere on January 6, 2011. Now, co-creaters/writers/stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein have announced a six-city tour, cleverly dubbed Portlandia: the Tour, that will bring the show’s unique quirkiness to cities throughout the US.
The tour will feature sneak peaks at the upcoming season, live music and personal stories about the inspiration behind and creation of Portlandia. It will kick of December 27 at Portland, OR’s Hollywood Theatre.
Other scheduled stops include Los Angeles, CA’s Echoplex, Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg and Seattle, WA’s Showbox at the Markey.
