Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen’s “Portlandia” will trek onward with a brand new, indie-star-studded season premiering January 4 on IFC. Before that, though, the show returned this past weekend for a holiday special, “Winter in Portlandia”.
As Consequence of Sounds reports, Jack White appeared alongside Armisen in a scene called “The Studio”. Armisen obsessively collects vintage recording equipment (“Sometimes I daydream about Brian Wilson coming down here…”) and yearns for that one artist to record with. White comes in towards the end surrounded by a faint, angelic fog– the answer to Armisen’s prayers.
