Presumably for the hell of it, the great stand-up comic and Broad City star Hannibal Buress, currently enjoying the festivities at SXSW, said on Twitter that he’d like to drum for a band. He was careful to note that he does not actually play drums. Speedy Ortiz frontwoman Sadie Dupuis took him up on the offer, and Buress temporarily joined the band at a Pitchfork party at the Mohawk this afternoon. Based on available video evidence, it was not a disaster! Watch it below.

Speedy Ortiz will play the Stereogum x Exploding In Sound show at Hole In The Wall on Friday. Maybe this will happen again?
UPDATE: We’ve now got full video of the performance, as well as video of Buress talking about the experience and forgetting Speedy Ortiz’s name on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Buress laughing uproariously throughout the performance is just the best.
