David Byrne sat in with the indie rock group Dirty Projectors last night. The club show was held at New York’s Bowery Ballroom on the final night of a four-show, two-venue residency. Byrne emerged during the group’s encore for “Knotty Pine.” The Talking Heads leader recorded the song with Dirty Projectors for the Dark Was the Night benefit album and later sat in with the group at both the Dark Was the Night concert at New York’s Radio City Music Hall this past May and Bonnaroo this past June. The members of the Roots, including mainstay ?uestlove, also sat in with the band at the Bowery Ballroom last night. The two groups first bonded when the Dirty Projectors performed on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. The band immediately impressed ?uestlove who sent off a series of Tweets about the Dirty Projectors.
