Even if the legendary D.C. hardcore band Fugazi decided to reunite, it's unlikely they would be sharing the 9:30 Club stage with local rapper Wale for the big comeback. But Greg Gillis has managed to do just that. Thanks to his deep record collection and ability to craft new songs out of previously used spare parts, one of Washington's most important bands and one of its rising rap stars are now part of the same song, "Let It Out." It is just one example of the many ways in which Gillis, who performs under the moniker Girl Talk, has brought together samples from across the genre spectrum. On Feb. 1-2, he'll be performing his mashups at the 9:30 Club. Tickets are $25 and go on sale Thursday at 10 a.m. through Ticketfly.
