Girl Talk

As the rowdy crowd chanted his name, Girl Talk, aka Gregg Gillis, took the stage in a hoodie and white bandana... and opened his laptop. Girl Talk's set was a seamless, ever-evolving collage of samples, cutting across genres and eras as he combined top-40 gems in new ways and even rap lyrics over Rush... Girl Talk's anarchic good-times music suited the celebratory vibe at the outdoor venue, where the crowd seemed part music nerds in dorky glasses, part sun-baked tubers in swimsuits and glowing bracelets. -[mysanantonio]
A week after Governors Ball, Girl Talk spent his Saturday (6/25) in New Braunfels, Texas (near San Antonio), playing a mashed-up set to a raucous outdoor crowd with support from "hillbilly disco" rockers Bright Light Social Hour. Pictures from that show are in this post.

The DJ/remixer will hit multiple festivals this summer and fall including Lollapalooza, and the just-mentioned Popped! Fest in Philly in September. All dates are below.

In other Girl Talk news, Greg Gillis recently made the instrumental for his track with Jim Jones and LLoyd, "Believe in Magic", available for free download. Hear the original, alongside all tour dates and more pictures from Texas below.

You can hate on Girl Talk all you want, but you have to admit the dude clearly knows how to throw a party and keep people entertained.

I remember when girl talk first started to blow up he dressed like a normal dude, now he has become an ultra hipster...

"I can't believe a glorified DJ is making a career off of this gimmick."

Girl Talk is basically a producer as much as he is a DJ. Sure, anyone can buy Ableton Live and try this shit but not many people do it as well as Gregg Gillis. He filled a niche and he does it well. Lay off the haterade.

2:34, it's not worth paying $25 for.

I wanna punch that girl who is on her phone

Posted by Anonymous | July 1, 2011 3:06 PM

yes people are dumb. Have fun idiots. this makes me angry... but so do a lot of other things that are happening in this country. Farewell to creativity... welcome to idiocracy. I guess I need to get used to it and just ignore so I don't have an aneurism or something.

I can't believe people pay for this shit

I don't love what GT does, but you fools are just sad and pathetic. Seriously, let's see what Gillis is doing this weekend compared to what you are doing. The guy get paid crazy amounts to basically throw huge parties and get revered by thousands. Write a snarky comment if ya want, but you're still not filling whatever potential you thought you'd amount to. Suckers!

Posted by Anonymous | July 1, 2011 3:31 PM

^ Alternately, we can continue to dismiss this rubbish and continue to fulfill our potential. As for being revered for throwing parties, well, I guess some some just like to aim low creatively.

Glad to see Derek Smalls is getting some steady work in Bright Light Social Hour.

What a show he put on...he does know how to keep the audience entertained! I am impressed with his creativity!!! Amazing, that is all I can say...

Perfect picture at the top...

If you like Girl Talk, learn more about music, maybe even teach yourself an instrument (look it up)
