Fred Armisen Joins Joanna Newsom In Concert

If you didn’t know, Fred Armisen lets his hair down and records music/instructs drumming for Drag City as epic skinsman Jens Hannemann. He’s in the midst of opening a couple of shows with his labelmate Joanna Newsom. One of those shows took place last night at the Jefferson Theatre in Charlottesville, Virginia where Armisen took to the stage during Newsom’s set to play cowbell dog bowl on Have One On Me’s “Good Intentions Paving Company.” Armisen’s not always easy to see in this fan-shot video, but his presence is deeply felt. (Thanks for the tip, Gary.)

Have One On Me is out via Drag City. If you want more Armisen/Hannemann, he’s also opening these dates:

03/25 – Durham, NC @ Carolina Theatre
03/26 – Atlanta, GA @ Variety Playhouse

If you just want more Newsom, head to NPR, where you can here a full set recorded at Sixth & I Synagogue in Washington D.C. earlier this week.

  1. I believe it was in fact “dog bowl” that he was playing, not cowbell. The same dog bowl, according to Newsom, that was played when recording the album.
