Girl Talk @ Rothbury

girltalkrothbury @AndyShore There is so much more to a Girl Talk show than a guy mashing up the greatest hits of the last four decades on his laptop. It’s even more than the all out dance party that is guaranteed at every show. Girl Talk is a production that can only be described as amazing. It’s all planned out from the moment set-up begins.

 

Security is all too aware of how Gregg Gillis lets throngs of his fans dance on stage as he puts on his show. They have many or their largest guards in formation throughout the photo pit to ensure the stage does not get stormed. Then there’s the guy from Gillis’ crew that decides who gets to go on stage. Last night that was determined by passing out playing cards to adoring fans. A golden ticket, if you will.

 

Then there’s the spectacle. There are toilet paper guns that spray TP into the crowd (mostly all over the photographers in the pit). There is his long, drawn out strip tease–or just shedding of layers of clothing as he sweats buckets. Gillis knows what works, and he does it oh so well.
The reason that Girl Talk doesn’t get old, is because it’s always interesting to see how he has worked some of the newest songs on the Top-40 into his set. In a Rothbury 2009 full of Michael Jackson covers, tributes and teases, Girl Talk weaved several MJ songs into his repertoire. After about an hour of his set, it was time to make the long trek back to our campsite.
