I got to be honest, for years I heard people talking about Girl Talk and how much they love him. I tried listening on Pandora and I just didn’t get it; I actually got anxiety listening to it at the office.
But then we saw him live at Coachella. Right away I got it. This guy is a genius. He has an uncanny ability to mix sounds of completely different genres into a mesmerizing ensemble that compels and inspires a crowd to party. And when he’s on, all people want to do is party. And that’s awesome.
Best part of the set was this in-the-moment quote that makes for great words to live by:
“F*ck what you thought was going to happen this is what’s happening right now.”
