For the first time in nearly a decade, Girl Talk is back on tour in North America. The Pittsburgh-based artist behind the project, Greg Gillis, specializes in sample-based music. His 2006 album Night Ripper alone includes layers from over 300 songs resulting in a high-energy collection of music that fits in equally at a house party as well as festivals like Bonarroo. Two albums and many singles later, Girl Talk continues to hone in on his own unique style while collaborating with a variety of rap artists like Wiz Khalifa, T-Pain, Tory Lanez and more. Catch him and Hugh Augustine at First Avenue. WEDS, 8 PM. $25..
