After releasing a new album, Feed the Animals, touring relentlessly, and reportedly winning $600 in a blackjack game in Las Vegas, you’d think Girl Talk would be ready for a bit of R&R in 2009. Not so. The man born Gregg Gillis will instead begin his year with a fresh batch of performance dates that start tonight in Omaha and will continue throughout the rest of winter. He’s sticking to the south and Midwest for these shows, but since his apparent goal is to have played all 50 states by the end of the year, expect to see him on the coasts again soon.
