Fred Armisen’s Playlist, Coming Live to Other Music

12/06/2011 3:37 PM |


“We know Fred will be performing songs from perennial favorites including the Clash, Devo, the Stranglers, the Damned and Husker Du, and truly, that’s all we know,” so goes the latest Other Music newsletter in regards to the just-announced “Fred Armisen Playlist” event happening there this Sunday. Apparently the store received a “somewhat mysterious request” to host the performance, so your guess is as good as theirs as to what it’ll all entail, though odds look good Portlandia will at least get a mention. Armisen seems to be diligently promoting the new season on local turf before he and C. Brownstein take it on the road in January with a live show — Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg dates included. As for Sunday, you’re looking at 8pm, all ages, limited capacity, first-come, first-served. (Keep in mind, the Pretty Good Friends’ holiday party at The Bell House that night with Eugene Mirman, Kristen Schaal and John Mulaney is not a bad set of steak knives.)
