Video: Dirk Nowitzki plays tambourine on stage with the Avett Brothers

Monday June 4th, 2012

You never know who you'll run into at a rock show. Take, for example, Dallas Mavericks power forward Dirk Nowitzki. According to The Big Lead, the seven-foot German made an appearance on stage with country-influenced indie rock band The Avett Brothers last night in Grand Prairie, Texas. Nowitzki played tambourine on the song "Sally's Lover."

So how does an NBA star look on stage with an indie rock band? Very, very conspicuous. Not to mention excited. See video, via Hypervocal:
