David Duchovny has been trying out a lot of things off-screen lately—he just released a book, with another one on the way, and last night he got up on the Cutting Room stage to perform some songs in support of his debut album, Hell or Highwater. For an encore, Gillian Anderson joined him for Neil Young’s "Helpless" (after requesting they "play some real music, please?").

And then that thing that you always wanted to happen on The X-Files* happened...


We have it on good authority Duchovny will be back at the Cutting Room soon.

*We're not counting the 2nd movie.
