Fans at Crowded House’s third-of-three shows at New York’s Bowery Ballroom last night got a rare treat: David Byrne joined the band during its encore to perform the Talking Heads classics “Once in a Lifetime” and “Road to Nowhere.” As the person who posted the clip above writes, “I went to see Crowded House and a Talking Heads concert broke out.”

Above, we’ve got “Once in a Lifetime,” and below you’ll find both “Road to Nowhere” plus a different take on “Once in a Lifetime.” The video’s not as great on the second version, but it shows how the band segued from “Weather With You” into the Heads song — with Byrne joining the band mid-stream, to the delight of the NYC crowd.
