Solid as Barack.

The guy who mixes alla these songs together is some kind of genius wizard when it comes to mashing the fun and the frenzied into one dance-along package. Tonight Gregg Gillis (aka Girl Talk), the engineer-turned-mashup-deejay, brings his craziness to town. I aim to go turn myself into a sweaty mess tonight, over yonder at In The Venue. Who's coming with?

(By the way, I count at least 25 bands/songs sampled in just these three minutes and whatever seconds. High points = Jackson 5, Yo La Tengo and Metallica. Amazing.)

Ohhh, yessss. I definitely went. It was a nonstop dance party that involved big buckets 'o sweat and a half-dressed stumbling Queen of Hearts and people onstage literally ripping their own clothes ... and it was all to the beat. You said it right ... most FUN show I've been to in eons. I left completely satisfied and completely drenched.
