On March 11, 2020, Oregon's Governor Kate Brown instituted a ban on gatherings of over 250 people in the state of Oregon. The ban is slated to last for four weeks but could be extended.

In the immediate term we have suspended sales for all shows at the Crystal Ballroom into the second week of April, and are exploring the possibility of rescheduling each show so ticket holders have the option of simply applying their current tickets to the rescheduled date. Ticketholders will be emailed as shows are either cancelled or rescheduled, and we will also post show information on our website (www.crystalballroompdx.com) and social media platforms.

All ticketholders have the option of requesting refunds at point of purchase or by emailing refunds@etix.com.

We at the Crystal Ballroom are grateful for the patronage of our amazing music community, and look forward to once again providing you all with a full schedule of shows. Until that day, please protect yourself and those around you by following all the CDC and state guidelines!

 

Girl Talk

Girl Talk (aka Pittsburgh's Gregg Gillis) has been constructing meticulous sample-based music since 2000. His early work was known for its raw experimental nature, but by the release of his 2006 album Night Ripper that style evolved into genre-smashing, breakneck-paced party jams. Night Ripper consisted of over 300 songs, from wildly disparate Top 40 genres and eras, mashed up and layered together into one cohesive collage. It received critical acclaim, and the attention resulted in a rapidly growing fan base. Gillis ended up quitting his biomedical engineering day job one year later.

Girl Talk continued to develop his signature style with the release of Feed the Animals in 2008 and All Day in 2010. Each album grew increasingly detailed and complex. He steadily toured over the following years, bringing his renowned confetti-covered and sweat-soaked performances to venues ranging from house party basements to major festivals. By 2014, Gillis began focusing on collaborative work producing hip-hop for some of his favorite rap artists. That same year, he released Broken Ankles, an EP with Freeway. Since Broken Ankles, Gillis has steadily earned an impressive list of production credits and collaborations with his artistic contemporaries including, but not limited to, Wiz Khalifa, T-Pain, Tory Lanez, Young Nudy, Bas, Cozz, Erick The Architect (from Flatbush Zombies), Smoke DZA and Don Q.
