“Speedy Ortiz let me come on stage and ruin their song with my horrible drumming. I am forever indebted to them.” – Hannibal Burress.

Hannibal Buress is currently in Austin for SXSW and yesterday tweeted: “I’m in Austin and i will play drums in your band tomorrow between 12-5pm. I can’t play drums. It’ll be bad.” Speedy Ortiz’ Sadie Dupuis took him up on the offer, replying, “hey @hannibalburess yr cordially invited to drum with speedy ortiz at the @pitchfork showcase at @mohawkaustin, 1 pm. or we could get pizza.” And soon after, Hannibal did just that, sitting in on Speedy’s “MKVI” during the set at the Pitchfork party at Mohawk. You can watch it below.

Speedy Ortiz will play BrooklynVegan’s SXSW day party today at Red 7, taking the 4:20 slot on the outside stage. Today’s show also has METZ, Broncho, Chastity Belt, Girlpool and more. You can RSVP for all three days of BV parties. If you’re in Austin, hope to see you there!

In related news, Splitsider reports that Comedy Central has picked up Hannibal Buress’ reality show, Unemployable, which has the comedian (and Broad City scene-stealer) trying out a different job each week. We look forward to seeing that.
