Girl Talk is Going on a Gigantic Tour

When it comes to music, Girl Talk will settle for nothing less than spectacular. His recent album, Feed the Animals, used 300 samples in 50 minutes, was released under an extensive pay-what-you-want plan, and now the inimitable man born Greg Gillis is packing his bags for a rather epic tour.

Gillis will be on the road for nearly 40 dates this summer and fall, joined by Grand Buffet, The Death Set, CX Kidronik, and Hearts of Darkness, and will hit the major festivals like Lolapalooza, All Points West, and DEMF's summer event. For those wondering if the live performances will maintain the standard set by his recorded work, just peep the photo above. Pick up Feed the Animals now at Illegal Art.
