If Garrison Keillor can take Lake Wobegon on tour, then surely the stars of IFC TV comedy Portlandia can bring their affectionate rendering of Portland, Oregon, on the road with them, too. And indeed, they are: Saturday Night Live funnyman Fred Armisen and Wild Flag guitarist-vocalist Carrie Brownstein (formerly of the beloved band Sleater-Kinney) kick off a six-city Portlandia tour at the end of the December. According to the IFC website, the tour will combine live music with anecdotes about the show — and clips from its upcoming second season, which features Eddie Vedder and St. Vincent. The dream of the ’90s will come alive in the following cities:

Portlandia tour:
Dec. 27 – Portland, OR @ Hollywood Theater
Dec. 28 – Seattle, WA @ Showbox
Dec. 30 – San Francisco, CA @ Mezzanine
Jan. 17 – Los Angeles, CA @ Echoplex
Jan. 18 – Chicago, IL @ The Hideout
Jan. 20 – Brooklyn, NY @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Jan. 21 – New York, NY @ Bowery Ballroom
