An unexpected guest showed up yesterday afternoon at the Austin Ventures Stage with Austin-by-way-of-Louisiana slide guitar hotshot Papa Mali. The Grateful Dead's Bill Kreutzman was backing up the dreadlocked Mali on drums.
It wasn't the first surprise celebrity collaboration to occur at ACL, however, as Led Zepplin's John Paul Jones joined forces with Sara Watkins on Friday and Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder sang with Kings of Leon onstage later that night.
