Tulsa-born singer-songwriter St. Vincent will appear on tonight’s episode of the sketch show “Portlandia,” airing at 9 p.m. on IFC.
After the episode, St. Vincent, who is playing in concert May 15 at Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa, will premiere a “lost” cut of her track “Cheerleader” on the Portlandia website, www.ifc.com/shows/portlandia.
Here is the episode summary:
This Friday at 10/9c, everyone’s favorite openly reggae mayor returns to “Portlandia.” That’s right, Kyle MacLachlan is back and he has a job for Fred Armisen’s and Carrie Brownstein’s alter egos, who helpfully also go by the names Fred and Carrie, but are very different from the real Fred and Carrie. You got that? Good. So on Friday’s brand new episode of “Portlandia,” the Mayor of Portland (Kyle MacLachlan) tasks Fred and Carrie to redesign the Portland Police Department’s uniforms and along with their clothes, their image. Sounds like a reasonable request, right?
We are very excited for Kyle to return to the show, but he isn’t the only special guest star this episode. Annie Clark a.k.a. singer songwriter St. Vincent will also be appearing. Fans of Fred and Carrie’s early sketch comedy work in Thunderant will recognize Annie from her performance in a feminist bookstore that looks strangely familiar.
Back in 2010, Armisen and Brownstein starred in the music video for St. Vincent’s “Laughing with a Mouth of Blood”:
