Do you watch Portlandia? You should, it is hilarious! When they announced they were making a stop in Nashville on their tour I knew I had to go. The show was last night, I went with my friend Brittany and it was SO GOOD. I wasn't really sure what to expect. They played songs, played clips that haven't aired yet, talked to the audience and did some comedy bits. I had seen some reviews online of people who didn't like it, and thought it seemed unrehearsed, but I loved it! It almost felt like we were all just hanging out together. My favorite part was when they showed old photos from their computers. That sounds super lame but it was so hilarious. I got very few descent pictures, but I'm still going to show you!
Fred Armisen in high school. I'm totally in love with him. I mean, I was before last night, but now it is a super crush. Haha, he just seems so nice! And cute! And did you see him as Prince on SNL recently? So gooooood. And you know I have a thing for glasses.
They did this whole "She's Making Jewelry Now" bit that I really loved! Here is the video of it fro the show. Carrie said they wrote it because it seemed like they were hearing "She's making jewelry now" a lot when asking about someone they hadn't seen in a while.
They said it was the only encore they did on the whole tour, and this was the last night. They pulled one dude up to dance and a ton up people ended up on stage. Security wasn't happy about it, but it was pretty great. Believe it or not I didn't wait after for a chance to meet Carrie and Fred. I really doubted they would come out, and the night had been so nice and weirdly intimate feeling I didn't want to ruin it if I ended up waiting a long time for nothing.
