Portlandia Debuts on Hulu; Decide for Yourself if It's Funny


Movies & Television
Didn't get a ticket to tonight's Portlandia preview at the Hollywood Theatre? Don't want to wait until next week's premiere on the Independent Film Channel and the Mission Theater? Why not just watch it now, at your desk? IFC, perhaps realizing that not very many people actually have IFC, has released the first episode of the much-buzzed Carrie Brownstein TV show on Hulu. Finally, you can stop ...   More

Live Review: Wild Flag & Ramona Falls, Wednesday, Jan. 12 at Bunk Bar


Music
Looking back at the LocalCut archives, I realize that I haven't written a proper off-the-cuff live review in almost two years. But this morning, while laboring through a glut of PR emails and music listings, a funny thing happened: I couldn't stop thinking about the show I saw last night.

At a mini-junket luncheon today at Besaw's, Armisen (the Saturday Night Live Obama impersonator) and Brownstein (the Sleater-Kinney ...   More
