Fred Armisen Carrie Brownstein Portlandia live chat

"Portlandia" stars Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen will take part in a live Web chat hosted by Show Tracker on Tuesday at 10 a.m. Pacific.

Brownstein and Armisen are also the creators of the sketch comedy, which is finishing up its second season on IFC.

"Portlandia" sweetly spoofs modern hipsters and aging bohemians, centered on the inhabitants of a metropolis where "young people go to retire," everyone grows their own organic food and Kyle MacLachlan is mayor. 

Outside "Portlandia," Armisen continues as a member of the "Saturday Night Live" ensemble, and Brownstein, who was in the band Sleater-Kinney, plays in the band Wild Flag. They recently took "Portlandia" on a a six-city tour that mixed comedy and live music.

The duo will be chatting for an hour, so get all your questions about pickling, craft beers and "Battlestar Galactica" ready.

Sign up below for a reminder.
