This is so cool, it is almost angering. ALMOST.
Dave Grohl joined Brandi Carlile for some busking at Pike Place in Seattle over the weekend! In case you're wondering what busking is...
Street performance or busking is the act of performing in public places for gratuities. In many countries the rewards are generally in the form of money but other gratuities such as food, drink or gifts may be given. Street performance is practiced all over the world and dates back to antiquity.
I dunno, man...it's just an old word that sometimes I worry that I HAVE to explain. Anyway...
Via Seattle Times:
“I looked over and I was like: ‘Oh my, that’s Dave Grohl!” said Matt from Anacortes, who was at the Market and who declined to give a last name.
Dani from Milwaukee, who also declined to give a last name, said she and Matt were wandering around at the Market and chanced upon the performance. They saw a crowd of people clustered around at the intersection of Pike Place and Pike Street, right in front of the “Farmers Market” sign, and went over to see what was happening.
Dani and Matt are having an affair, huh? That's what I got from this. Also!
Carlile alerted fans to the Saturday pop up jam session by broadcasting a few minutes of it live on her Facebook page. She later posted an Instagram photoabout it too, saying, “Got nostalgic and decided to swing by my old busking spot at Pike Place Market with the twins and Dave Grohl. … honestly one of the most surreal moments of my life.”
