I photographed Girl Talk my freshman year at the University and had the opportunity to shoot it again this Wednesday. I will say that the crowd, the atmosphere and the scene changed tremendously over that time. When he played at Mojo's, it was also sold out, but the crowd was full of totally dedicated fans, sweating their faces off and dancing. This time at the Blue Note, it seemed to almost be a costume party for many. Sorority sisters dressed in neon and sun dresses surrounded Greg Gillis throughout the show, pointing to their friends in the front row.
Gillis puts on an amazing show- so full of energy and moving from beat to beat seamlessly.
Front-row fans get a leaf blower pointed in their faces by a member of Girl Talk's stage crew during his sold out show at the Blue Note on May 5.
