On Thursday (November 1), Los Angeles' Palace Theater hosted Swing Left‘s The Last Weekend. The star-studded event's goal is “to spur get-out-the-vote efforts on the last weekend before the midterm elections in key races up and down the ticket… with the goal of taking back Democratic control of the House of Representatives and transforming our government,” and Dave Grohl was the night's special guest.

The Foo Fighters frontman and former Nirvana drummer sat behind the drum kit during Beck's performance of "What It's Like" with the Bird and the Bee (similar to what they did together last month). The performance included a snippet of Chic’s “Good Times” before Beck encouraged Grohl to showcase his percussive prowess with a lengthy drum solo.

Grohl also drummed for Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Karen O and Nick Zinner's performance of “Heads Will Roll.” 

Watch both performances below.

This appearance is only the latest in Grohl's acts of charity. Late last month, he performed with his daughter Violet for a homeless fundraiser. He also performed at another fundraiser with Beckinvited a blind child onstage, and handed over his $2,000 guitar to a 10-year-old kid after letting him rock out onstage with the Foo Fighters — and that's all been over the course of a month.
