The year is shaping up to be a small step forward for live music in Vietnam. Already we’ve seen acts like Brooklyn-based Ratat, dancehall singer Lexie Lee and Beijing indie band Rebuilding the Rights of Statues swing through Saigon. Now, DJ Greg Gillis, aka Girl Talk will be bringing his signature blend of hundreds-of-samples-strong mixes and frenetic audience interaction to Hanoi on August 15 (venue to be determined) thanks to the folks at CAMA.
Sadly, Girl Talk won’t be hitting HCMC. The inside word is that he’d rather spend some time on the beach after his Hanoi date. So get booking your Jetstar flight.
