North Carolina indie rockers The Avett Brothers eschewed the cowbell in favor of more tambourine at this weekend's show in Grand Prairie, Texas, and in doing so, found a 7-foot-tall NBA MVP to provide it. Dirk Nowitzki, a big fan of the band, made the "cameo of the year" (at about the 2:00 mark of the video) according to Joe Kwan, the band's cellist:
Cameo of the year goes to @swish41 for joining us on tambourine on Sally's Lover!

And the lovefest continued after the show, by Dirk:
Had a blast at the avett bros concert. Great show. Great band.
