Everything always has to be bigger in Texas. When you're performing at Austin City Limits, you can't just fill up the side stage your lame friends. The Black Lips obviously get this, so they called up Ryan Gosling to hang on stage left.
Okay, so maybe he was actually just there shooting a new Terrence Malick directed film with Rooney Mara, but it is way more fun to think he's just buddies with the Lips. Somehow that makes it seem like we all have a shot of hanging with the "hey girl" heartthrob.
