Steve Aoki and Gregg Gillis just announced shows in Tempe. If you know who neither of these dudes are, then that's okay -- this probably won't apply to you. As well, you're probably not a 19-year-old college student from NorCal who likes to wear his flat-brimmed Oakland Athletics hat cocked to the left. Good looking out, son! 

Sweeping generalizations aside, both Aoki and Gillis are famed DJs with similar mashup stylings, as the kids say. Both fellas like to take multiple songs and cram them all into one, a style Gillis has perfected under his Girl Talk moniker. Aoki's 2008 album Pillowface and His Airplane Chronicles had its own mashup charm -- not quite as intricate as Gillis' style, but enjoyable nonetheless.

However, the real question here is: do you like to watch a dude stand up on stage and dick around with a MacBook? If you answered yes, then Steve Aoki and Greg Gillis are your cup of mashed-up tea.

Joining these DJs with upcoming shows of their own are Balmorhea, BrokeNcyde and Cowboy Mouth.
