Girl Talk at Pioneer Park

Eight reasons the next Twilight Concert should be more manageable than the opener.

By Bill Frost
Posted // July 12,2010 -

Eight reasons the July 15 Twilight Concert at Pioneer Park should be more manageable than the overcrowded opener with Modest Mouse:

8. Headliner Girl Talk isn’t even a real band, just some hipster with laptop. If a crush and/or deaths occur over that, it’s natural selection.

7. The chain-link fences will be electrified—by green power, as per Mayor Ralph Becker.

6. Headliner Girl Talk is only three steps above a wedding DJ. Utah weddings typically have better crowd control than concerts.

5. Police will be enforcing a no-fixed-gear-bikes policy for eight square blocks.

4. Headliner Girl Talk involves no actual musicians. Has that been mentioned?

3. Ted Dancin’ also plays Thursday night, at The Urban Lounge. Same show.

2. Beer will be sold out of Porta-Pottys, eliminating lines.

1. Headliner Girl Talk is getting paid thousands in tax dollars to play other people’s songs. This will bring out all 18 members of the SLC Tea Party.

SLC-ZAP knows exactly what it is doing. Under prepare for one name band. Get lots of publicity. Have no-name no-fame groups scheduled for all the follow-up Thursdays. This is a vendor show not a legitimate concert. The venue and the bands/groups stink. This is what it takes to sell over priced small portions of questionably prepared foods to cheep Utahns.

 

Posted // July 13,2010 at 12:23 - Larry, Larry, Larry...did you NOT view the video those two very young women produced on CW's home page about the show last week? Why, they had people like Mayor Ralph Becker and promoter Casey Jarman right there on video saying things like "People really want this!' and "What an opportunity to listen to "great music." So, regradless of what you actually experienced while you were actually there and you weren't there to promote and say fuzzy, loopy things about, it doesn't count in the face of luminaries promoting things they thought of and are responsible for doing. Clearly, sir, you don't appreciate a Free Concert. You probably think the Ever Changing Night of the Hot Chocolate Downtown Zombies, er, I mean the old First Night, is a waste of time, too. And it is.

The funny thing is, Girl Talk has more talent than 80% of the artists he plays. He takes all the best parts of all the songs you love, and combines them. He breaks the genre barrier in every song he makes. What other artist does that? And Minus the Bear? Are you serious? Go listen to Smash Your Head, and get your head out of your ass.

Posted // July 12,2010 at 16:19 - "What other artist does that?" Milli Vanilli? Weird Al Yankovich? Richard Cheese and Lounge Against the Machine? Dread Zepplin? Luther Wright and the Wrongs? Ok, Girl Talk Anonymous, I give, who else does that?
