Girl Talk

Greg Gillis aka Girl Talk was oh so kind to chat with me prior to his show in Austin. I asked about the his stage presence, which he actually shares with the crowd and all the fun gimmicks he throws into the mix to keep the partying interesting. We spliced in some shots from the Austin show as well as his Lollapalooza set where all said gimmicks originated. Gimmick isn't the correct word, lets go with party favors. At Lolla he jumped on a raft (party favor) which was then hijacked by a fan, giving the kid a very heroic story to tell his friends. We then quickly jump to one of Greg's favorite interests, Son of the Mask - the sequel to Jim Carrey's The Mask. And I finish with some talk about food...Are you going to eat that?


Stars, from Montreal were nice enough to talk to over ACL. I missed Torque because he was swimming in Barton Springs, but Amy, Evan and Chris were nice enough to take a seat in my tent. We talk for a bit about Sad Robots, an EP they recently released. And my love for all their brethren in Montreal, all the Arts & Crafts bands and how magical the whole situation seems. I'm a dork...
