The first season of Portlandia, the IFC sketch-comedy show from Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, had a ton of cameos from indie-ish celebs; consider, if you will, last year’s segment “The Deuce,” which starred Corin Tucker, James Mercer, and Colin Meloy. From the look of things, season two of the show will feature even more musician cameos — a Coachella main stage’s worth, really. According to Rolling Stone, the next season will include appearances from Joanna Newsom, St. Vincent’s Annie Clark, Eddie Vedder, Modest Mouse’s Isaac Brock, Johnny Marr, and the Sex Pistols’ Steve Jones. How many of these people are actually funny? I guess we’ll find out! Below, check out a quick preview for the season.

Season two of Portlandia starts 1/6 on IFC.
