Girl Talk coming to Jannus Live in St. Petersburg




Sometimes we wonder how Gregg Gillis, a.k.a. Girl Talk, makes any money. His insane pop-hip-hop-dance mashups are legal nightmares that we would imagine can't be played on the radio. And he gives away his albums, like last year's All Day, for free.

Then you remember that Girl Talk is flat-out awesome live, so much so that Girl Talk's shows at Bonnaroo and Coachella are must-stops. When he performed at Czar in 2008, tons of fans crowded around Gillis' sweaty laptop, all thrashing around in what might serve as a convenient visual metaphor for his music.

So it's awesome news that he'll be returning to Tampa Bay on May 18, for a concert at Jannus Live. The info is hot off the presses from his PR people , so we're still waiting on ticket info. We'll update you when we have it . ***UPDATE*** Tickets go onsale at 10 a.m. Friday, and will cost $25-$30.

In the meantime: Check out our interview with Gillis from 2008. And if you haven't already downloaded All Day yet, what's stopping you?
