Will Your Favorite Broken-up Band Be Reunited?

Posted by on

The blogosphere has been anxiously awaiting the announcement of this year’s line up for Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival (April 17-19). Yesterday, there were various blog postings on the internet teasing the fact that KROQ-FM (Los Angeles) promised to announce the festival’s line-up during their early morning hours.

Coachella organizers called KROQ and gave them the bad news that the line-up was not finalized yet, speculating some to believe that the festival promoters were still trying to nail down a few more big-name acts.

As the day went on rumor spread that KROQ would either make the announcement later in their broadcast day, or early the next morning. As of Wednesday afternoon, there was still no announcement.

So why the itchy blog fingers?

Unlike many rival festivals, Coachella has had the remarkable (and almost magical) ability to reunite bands for their annual festival (Jane’s Addiction, Siouxsie & the Banshees, The Stooges, Rage Against The Machine, Pixies, Crowded House, Gang Of Four, etc.).

If the members of your favorite musical act are still alive, Coachella provides hope for you. Since the festival began, fans of The Smiths pay particularly close attention to Coachella’s yearly line-up announcement, praying that Morrissey and Johnny Marr will just suck it up for one day and play together again.

Until the announcement is made–and we don’t exactly know when that will be –there’s a chance for the impossible to happen.

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
