Saturday Night Live’s Fred Armisen and WILD FLAG and Sleater-Kinney’s Carrie Brownstein return this Friday, January 6, at 10pm with the Season 2 premiere of their shorts-based IFC Channel series, Portlandia. You might remember the duo making an appearance (as feminist bookstore owners) in the video for St. Vincent’s “Laughing With a Mouthful of Blood”. Since then, the show has taken hilarious life. This season, expect guest stars like Twin Peak’s Kyle MacLachlan, Parks & Recreation’s Aubrey Plaza and The Shins’ James Mercer to join Armisen and Brownstein in their celebration of Portland, Oregon’s weird eccentricities. Revisit that St. Vincent video below:
