Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein Appearing at Apple Store, Wild Flag Playing Rock Shop and Radio City


Portlandia stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein will be making an in-store appearance at the Apple Store in SoHo on Friday, January 28 at 7PM.

Join Fred Armisen (“Saturday Night Live”) and vocalist/guitarist Carrie Brownstein (Sleater-Kinney) as they discuss their new comedy series for the Independent Film Channel (IFC), “Portlandia.” The six-episode series, inspired by the duo’s web series, “ThunderAnt,” includes sketches featuring the pair portraying the progressive personalities, aesthetics, and values of the creators’ dreamy and absurd rendering of Portland, Oregon.

Portlandia airs Fridays at 10:30 PM on IFC.
