SXSW Early Warning

Posted by on

There is so much going on at SXSW, just on the good old music front alone, that one person could not possibly absorb it all. Attempts have been made to be sure, but the more daring soul usually ends up with a condition called 6th street burnout (which may or may not include waking up in the back of a random band van without any pants). In an effort to stave that off I’ll be highlighting a few choice events each week leading up to the festival, to help you (and I) plan ahead.

It’s not easy sticking to a plan at SXSW, in fact spontaneity is often best, but here’s a couple showcases I intend to bounce between on Wednesday, luckily they’re at the same venue.

Wednesday March 16 Jagjaguwar/Secretly Canadian showcase:

Red 7 Patio (w/ Tig Notaro as MC)
8:30- 9:10 Lia Ices
9:30- 10:15 Special Guests
10:35- 11:15 John Vanderslice
11:35- 12:20 Cave Singers
12:50- 1:50 Okkervil River

Wednesday March 16 Jagjaguwar/Secretly Canadian showcase:

Red 7
8- 8:40 Suuns
9- 9:40 The Luyas
10- 10:40 Little Scream
11- 11:40 Sun Airway
12- 12:40 Small Black
1- 1:40 Parts and Labor

Duran Duran is also headlining the Time Out North America showcase at Stubb’s around 12:30 AM. I might have to catch their return to form just for spectacles sake.

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.

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.
