Girl Talk to Release "House Party" Doc

Girl Talk celebrated New Year’s Eve 2010 by throwing one of the world’s largest “house parties” at Chicago’s Congress Theater. According to the musician’s camp:

As a surprise to the 4,500-capacity Congress Theatre audience in Chicago, Girl Talk had a two-story, five room house built on stage. This house took months to plan, and 4+ full days and 21+ crewmembers to build. Girl Talk and the set designers seriously took things to the next level when it came to the detail that went into each aspect of the house. They drywalled the rooms, made a real staircase, and fake wooden floors, built a kitchen that included a refrigerator with a note stuck on the door, and a table with a fruit bowl, blender and more, a living room that included a hutch filled with china, fireplace, couch, coffee table, rug, picture frames and more, the kid’s room had a bed, desk, computer and mouse, pencil jar, trophy, amongst other items, and the bathroom featured a real toilet, sink, shower and curtain. Plus, outside the house, there were even fake trees lining the yard, and a rock was placed in front of the house covering the table Girl Talk works on.

Now, Girl Talk will release a behind the scenes look at the creation of the special show. The performance and planning for the event were both documented on multiple HD cameras and have now been made into a short film called Girl Talk NYE Chicago. Girl Talk will perform next at Asheville, NC’s MoogFest on October 29.
