It's SXSW (all of Baeble's video team is down in Austin, TX getting prepared for our showcase this Friday at Empire Control Room & Garage
as I man the fort here in our offices in Brooklyn) which means it's time for all of the ridiculous stories of the goings on down in Austin to start making their way to the rest of the world.
Last year, Hannibal Buress surprised music lovers by playing drums on a Speedy Ortiz song (despite the fact that Hannibal Buress had no idea how to play drums). I remember that story because it was one of the first posts I wrote after I took over as Baeble's Managing Editor. And the Broad City
/stand-up comedy star (who's about to have his own sitcom on Comedy Central) upped the ante this year by rapping on stage with Open Mike Eagle. Although this time, Buress knew what he was doing as he was rapping lines he'd already done for a track that came out a while ago.
It's just a shame he never got to freestyle with the President last week.
