Did you know…. In Portland you can go to a record store and sell your CDs?

That’s right – we’re talkin’ Portlandia. They’re coming to Echo Park on January 17, 2012 and well, let’s face it – you could re-name the show EchoParklandia and it’d basically be the same show. I have to say, I’m a fan!

The event at The Echo is one of six city tours (dubbed Portlandia: The Tour), and features co-creators Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein. They’ll be performing live music, talking about the show, and playing clips from the show’s second season, which premieres on January 6, 2012. Here’s a little sneak peak of what you can expect (from the show’s website):

Tickets are $20.00 advance BUT here’s the deal – it looks like it’s already sold out. You might be able to get the $26.00 tix on the day of the show, if there are any available.

For the week of Monday, May 23 through Sunday, May 29
