Portlandia Premiere Sells Out

fred

Looks like people really want to see this Portlandia thing.

Just hours after WW reported yesterday that the Hollywood Theatre and Beer and Movie were presenting a preview screening of Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen's comedy-on-fixies IFC series, the 350 tickets for the Jan. 14 show sold out.

(UPDATE, 4:43 pm: Folks at the Hollywood Theatre box office tell me that while screening tickets are gone, about 100 tickets remain for the afterparty--Beer and Movie's opening shindig, with performances from Pancake Breakfast and Eric Earley. They can be purchased here.)

Didn't get a ticket? Not to worry. Beer and Movie (why yes, that is the film festival I curate) is presenting free showings of all six episodes of Portlandia at the Mission Theater, starting with the first episode at 9 pm Friday, Jan. 21.

Those screenings will also be accompanied by live music shows: The Morals are slated to play on Jan. 21, with other acts announced soon. Aren't you glad you can't afford cable?
