[News] Coachella Cruise Announced, Brings Hot Chip, James Murphy, Pulp, and More Along for the Journey

Less than an hour ago, we reported on rumors that Goldenvoice, the people behind The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, would be announcing a Coachella-themed cruise, which would set sail in December. It appears the rumors are true.

In December, Coachella will be hosting two separate cruises (they have to keep up with their recent foray into dual weekends), the first being a three-day cruise to the Bahamas starting on December 16th, and the second being a four-day cruise to Jamaica starting on December 19th. Both cruises will sail out of Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Prices for the cruise start at $500 per person, which includes cabin, entertainment, and food.

The biggest selling point, though, has to be the lineup, and Goldenvoice have brought in some major talent for their seafaring adventure. Headlining the cruise are Hot Chip, Pulp, Yeasayer, Girl Talk, James Murphy, and Sleigh Bells, with other acts including SKOA favorite El-P, Simian Mobile Disco, Killer Mike, Grimes, The Rapture, Black Lips, Cloud Nothings, DJ Z-Trip, The Gaslamp Killer, and more.

Let us know your thoughts on Coachella's ocean adventures.

Girl Talk To Co-Headline Governors Ball Music Festival, Announces More Spring & Summer Shows

Gregg Gillis, better known as Girl Talk is heading back out on the road after a two week break back home in Pittsburgh to continue his 40+ city tour of North America in support of his new album, All Day. After a staggering run of 22 sold out shows, Gillis picks up right where he left off at NYC's Terminal 5 on Thursday. 

In case you can't make it on Thursday like me, do not fret! Girl Talk will be co-headling the Governors Ball Music Festival on Saturday, June 18th. He'll also be making appearances at Summercamp and Bonnaroo in case you're heading out to those as well. 

Also very awesome for Girl Talk: they recently were nominated for a Performing Woodie at the 2011 Woodie Awards. Be sure to go show your support by voting

[Watch] Girl Talk NYE Chicago 2009 Documentary Trailer

Above is the tailer for Girl Talk's NYE Chicago 2009 documentary that tells the story of the over-the-top New Year's Eve extraveganza of a party that Gregg Gillis aka Girl Talk threw at the Congress Theater in Chicago, IL.

How over the top. you ask? Apparently Gillis had a two-story, five room house built on stage at the venue that was fully furnished like a real house, but with some (as I like to call them) "disco detailing", such as a bathroom that would eventually strobe any color and the kitchen floor turned into a light up dance floor.

The documentary drops September 21st, so be on the lookout for that.

Rumor has it that Girl Talk has also been working on his new album over the summer and should see the light of day in early 2011, so be on the lookout for that.
