What to Watch on IFC in April (photo)

Posted by on

This month on IFC, we’re serving up brand spankin’ new episodes of “Dinner With The Band” and “Food Party” featuring indie music and funky recipes to satisfy any appetite. It all kicks off Tuesday, April 27th at 10pm. There’ll be back to back episodes of the psychadelic series “Food Party,” with host Thu Tran creating interesting dishes while also dealing with surreal circumstances. Then at 10:30pm, watch executive chef Sam Mason cook up deliciousness on “Dinner With The Band” while hosting an array of music artists, including Rufus Wainwright, Vega, Andrew WK and more.

And, to make you a little more hungry this month, tune in for IFC’s Food Fight Thursday, April 8th at 6pm for a recipe that involves a pinch of action, a hint of gore and some sweet-sounding titles. First up, “Blood and Wine,” a jewel heist thriller starring Jack Nicholson and Jennifer Lopez. Then catch teen werewolf cult favorite “Ginger Snaps,” Bond man Daniel Craig as a drug dealer in “Layer Cake” and a pre-“Juno” Ellen Page as a teen on a vengeful mission in “Hard Candy.”

310x229_cursed2.jpgAlso this month, horror reigns on Thursday April 23rd starting at 7:45pm. Tune in for the classic, never-gets-old fright flick “Halloween,” teens being stalked by a crazed psycho killer in “Madman,” and Christina Ricci fighting her way out of werewolfdom in “Cursed,” directed by horror master Wes Craven. Plus, the night gets stranger and gorier with Dee Snider’s “Strangeland,” about a deranged convict who returns to his old ways of luring unsuspecting victims into his home to torture them.

Plus, Friday, April 9th at 8:30pm, catch our SXSW wrap-up special, featuring highlights of all the most awesome moments from the two-week festival. If you miss it, check out the schedule for airings throughout the month.

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.

Most people measure time in minutes, hours, days, years…At IFC, we measure it in sketches. And nothing takes us way (waaaaaay) back like Portlandia sketches. Yes, there’s a Portlandia milepost from every season that changed the way we think, behave, and pickle things. In honor of Portlandia’s 8th and final season, Subaru presents a few of our favorites.


Put A Bird On It

Portlandia enters the pop-culture lexicon and inspires us to put birds on literally everything.

Colin the Chicken

Who’s your chicken, really? Behold the emerging locavore trend captured perfectly to the nth degree.

Dream Of The ’90s

This treatise on Portland made it clear that “the dream” was alive and well.

No You Go

We Americans spend most of our lives in cars. Fortunately, there’s a Portlandia sketch for every automotive situation.

A-O River!

We learned all our outdoor survival skills from Kath and Dave.
