Girl Talk to headline Homecoming
Mashup artist Girl Talk will headline this year’s Homecoming Concert at Towson University.
Campus Activities Board Director and Towerlight contributor Sam Silverman said she believes Girl Talk is a popular choice for Towson students.
“I do believe that Girl Talk will help us uphold the tradition of the Homecoming Concert selling out,” she said. “In every event that we plan, our goal is to please as many students as possible. Girl Talk has played at major festivals and is fairly well known, as well as using many different genres of music in his performance. So there will be something for everyone to enjoy.”
Silverman said that Girl Talk is more of a DJ rather than the traditional singer-songwriter that usually headlines Homecoming.
“His style brings a different energy to the show,” she said. “In this case, it’ll be like one huge interactive party.”
Silverman also said that pre-selected students will have the opportunity to dance on stage with Girl Talk and that the “party” atmosphere will be furthered with decorations including confetti and toilet paper.
“It’s not necessarily about his songs having airplay on the radio, but rather about dancing and even having his lighting setup compliment the music to just be this great experience on your senses,” Silverman said.
This year’s Homecoming Concert will be held Sept. 18 in the Towson Center. Rapper Sam Adams will also perform.
Girl Talk’s latest CD, “All Day,” was released as a free download online last year.
