Girl Talk Tours, Blogs, Eats
- Words: Jennifer Marston
Gregg Gillis (a.k.a. Girl Talk) is likely one of the busiest guys in music, what with all the show dates, songs, and samples on his plate, but he hasn't forgotten the fans. Thus, he has unveiled his new day-to-day blog, which is currently documenting adventures on the road as he embarks on his six-week tour.
Each day, a new video will be added to the Girl Talk MySpace page. Days one, two, and three are already up and feature things like an interview with Gillis' dad, screaming crowds, backstage footage, and many, many references to food.
In other news, Gillis’ Jordan headband is currently being auctioned on eBay, and is said to be "reversible and in good condition." Bidding for it should keep you occupied for the next few days, as the physical release of Feed the Animals has been pushed back to November 11. The album can still be downloaded under the pay-what-you-want plan at Illegal Art.
Tour dates are in full swing and selling out quickly. You can even check the weather before heading out to the show.
