PORTLAND – ‘Portlandia’ season three kicks off Friday night on IFC.
This season’s guests include Roseanne Barr, Chloe Sevigny, some former MTV VJs and Dinosaur Jr.’s J. Mascis.
The show, shot in and around Portland, has developed a cult following and includes send-ups of the city like righteous bike riders, a feminist women's bookstore, and a crafty couple that pickles things.
The show features Carrie Brownstein, formerly a member of the local band Sleater-Kinney and now performing in a new band Wild Flag; and Fred Armison of Saturday Night Live.
A watch party is planned for the Mission Theater at 1624 Northwest Glisan Friday evening.
