The third season of everyone’s favorite IFC comedy-sketch show is fast upon us, with Portlandia slated to begin on January 4th. In advance of the inevitable onslaught of new hipsterisms, hereto-unknown eccentricities and brand new organic fetishes, The Observer cornered co-creator Fred Armison about what new “dreams of the Nineties” he would bring to life.
First among them is an appearance by No Doubt, the very ska-tastic Cali band that brought us Gwen Stefani before she turned all L.A.M.B. He would not divulge how Mrs. Gavin Rossdale and her cohorts would be featured in the show, but one might assume they will not be going Navajo. The Brooklyn-based band The Dirty Projectors will also be featured in the coming season.
UPDATE: No Doubt has now confirmed their appearance on the show:
It has just been announced that No Doubt will appear as special guests during an upcoming episode of the IFC original show “Portlandia.” The short-based comedy series, which stars Fred Armison and Carrie Brownstein, will begin its third season on January 4, 2013.
