ACL 2009 Day Three: Girl Talk

Of all the bands at ACL this year, Ghostland Observatory and Girl Talk competed heavily against one another for the most visually compelling acts. But because we can see lasers down at the Pink Floyd show at the planetarium just about any old time, our vote goes to Girl Talk.

Complete with requisite handfuls of confetti, wild dancing on stage (by both Gregg Gillis and hundreds of his frenzied audience members), buckets of sweat and streaming ribbons of toilet paper shot  into the air on jury-rigged leaf blowers, Girl Talk held the crowd's attention even against the awe-inspiring Pearl Jam concert that was taking place across the park towards the end.

Enjoy some of our favorite Girl Talk shots below.
