Portlandia Premiere Sells Out


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?
