The Hollywood Theatre's phones were apparently ringing all through the weekend with people hoping against hope they could somehow get into the sold-out preview screening
of Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen's Stumptown comedy series Portlandia
Hope triumphs: A second show has been added at 10 pm Friday, Jan. 14.
Like the 7:30 pm show, it'll have both episodes of Portlandia
, plus stand-up comedy from Ian Karmel and a Q&A with a member of the show's creative team.
I won't be conducting that interview (though I'm leading the Q&A with Carrie Brownstein at the 7:30 pm show). By 9 pm, I'll be at the Portlandia afterparty / Beer and Movie opening-night gala, where Colin Meloy of the Decemberists has now been added to the musical lineup.
Tickets for the second showing and the BAM/Portlandia afterparty are available at the Hollywood Theatre box office and here
Update, 5:21 pm:
Rather astoundingly, the second screening has also sold out.
