Fred Armisen got to fulfill a bit of a childhood dream of his when Devo rolled through Oakland, California where they were headlining the Burger Boogaloo festival.
Fred was the band’s guest drummer for the night and showed up donning the classic “uniform” of the synth rockers of a jumpsuit and that stupid hat thing.
Watch a clip of the band’s classic “Whip It” with Armisen on the skins.
Devo (w/ Fred Armisen) – “Whip It”
The band had gotten the secret out of the sit-in on Twitter the day before so fans must have been extra stoked to see those Portlandia nerd crossover moment.
Our friend Fred Armisen, longtime DEVOtee, will be joining us on drums for the Burger Boogaloo show in Oakland, CA this weekend. He brought his vintage Club DEVO membership kit to rehearsals, which he purchased in the early 1980s. Duty Now For The Future, Fred! @BURGERRECORDS pic.twitter.com/nE4HY4Etmj
