Girl Talk

“Now this was THE dance party of the weekend. The set started with dozens of fans on the stage dancing, and about an hour of almost non-stop music followed. For those not familiar, Girl Talk is Gregg Gillis, a DJ who just does crazy mashups — and people love it. The set at the Wookie Stage was way crowded, and not a soul was still.

It was just great to hear how Gillis could somehow fit in classic riffs like Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So” or GNR’s “Sweet Child of Mine” with all kinds of rap beats or hooks. It was great to hear the crowd scream and holler whenever a sample of something they recognized came on, then sing along at the top of their lungs (who knew “Jessie’s Girl” worked well with dance beats?).” [Ear Candy]

Girl Talk played the Sasquatch Festival in Washington on Memorial Day. A few days later he played a more intimate, indoor gig at Hiro Ballroom in NYC.

This summer he’ll be back for something much larger, much more public, outdoors, and totally free (I think). Girl Talk will be playing the “Pool Party” at Williamsburg Waterfront on Sunday, August 23rd. And (I think) the openers are Max Tundra and Wiz Khalifa.

After this post, I’ll be updating the master list of shows taking place at the same venue this summer. More GT tour dates and pictures from Sasquatch below…
