Girl Talk to come to Illinois Wesleyan
September 16, 2010
BLOOMINGTON, Ill. – Gregg Gillis, better known by the stage name Girl Talk, will perform
at Illinois Wesleyan on Sept. 24 at the Shirk Center (302 E. Emerson St., Bloomington).
The band Grand Buffet will be the opening act for the show. Doors to the event will
open at 6:15 p.m. with the show beginning at 7 p.m. The concert is sponsored by the
Illinois Wesleyan Student Senate.
Tickets for Girl Talk are free for Illinois Wesleyan students and are $15 for all
non-students and are available at the Hansen Student Center (300 Beecher St., Bloomington)
from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Sept. 13- 17 and 20-24 or online at ticketmaster.com.
Using only his laptop, Gillis creates mixes of danceable music from different genres
and looks to play concerts that are focused on “pop musicality,” according to the
PitchPerfectPR website. Having played over 200 concerts and been booked for large
music festivals such as Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Bonnaroo, Gillis is gaining momentum
in catching the attention of larger audiences. As PitchPerfectPR points out, “Rather
than taking mashups to an extreme, Girl Talk is more focused on the art of the sampling
and developing new tracks that have their own character, and surpass the original
“Student Senate is excited for this concert because it is different from anything
that IWU has heard before. Girl talk will hopefully appeal to a variety of students
and attract a big crowd,” said Student Senate University Events Commissioner Marlena
