The cult of Girl Talk @ Diesel party, SXSW – March 16, 2007
Girl Talk @ Diesel

Girl Talk was all over SXSW. I didn’t even try to see him, but ended up catching him twice. Once was at the Diesel-U-Music party on Friday night (March 16, 2007). It was where I went after the Iheartcomix party was busted. He went on right after Tokyo Police Club who went on after Matt & Kim.

The other time I saw Girl Talk was at the PACKED Pitchfork day party on the main stage of Emo’s. Diesel had much more breathing room.

It’s still unclear whether the mayor of Austin caught any Girl Talk shows at SXSW this year, but I’m sure Pennsylvania Congressman Mike Doyle would have been dancing on the stage had he been in Texas.

And had Girl Talk played the Playboy party, the mayor would have been sure to have seen Greg Gillis too. I’m actually surprised Playboy didn’t book him now that I know he’ll actually be making an appearance in their very own sister (brother?) publication…

First off, let’s burst a few bubbles by mentioning that while Gillis will appear in an upcoming issue of Playgirl (specifically the “Man of the Year” issue), “he will be shirtless, in jean shorts and hightops…and doing air kicks,” according to his publicist. In other words, if you’ve ever been to a Girl Talk show, you’ve probably seen more Gillis skin than Playgirl’s readership. Be proud. [Pitchfork]

Oh well.
