As far as spontaneous collaborations go, it probably doesn’t get much better than Lincoln from Comedy Central’s Broad City joining Speedy Ortiz on-stage at SXSW. The unlikely pairing began with a tweet, and staying true to his word, actor Hannibal Buress pitched up to lend his questionable time-keeping to the band’s final song. “Don’t lol me,” Buress said when Sadie Dupuis questioned his bravery. “I’m en route and expecting to gig.”
"If you fuck it up, we're not going to get discovered," joked Speedy Ortiz frontwoman Sadie Dupuis, before Hannibal Buress gave the band's final song a good bash. It's important to note here that Buress' drumming isn't on par with Abbi and Ilana's rock-fueled drum solo daydreams on Broad City, but he at least makes a commendable effort. Watch the chaos unfold below:
The track features on album ‘Twerp Verse’.
The band will play eight headline dates in this autumn.
