Hey, Mr. DJ: Tavi Gevinson Takes On A Whole New Profession

1
Go ahead and add another title to Tavi Gevinson’s growing résumé. As if fashion icon, actress, singer, entrepreneur, writer, and editor weren’t enough, the teen powerhouse is taking on the role of DJ. On Tuesday, April 23, Tavi’s tunes will be spinning at Debonair Social Club in celebration of the Museum of Contemporary Art’s screening of Cadaver, the award-winning short.
Even though she doesn't hit the night circuit with a turntable in tow on the reg, having lended her vocal talents to the film’s lead role and recorded two full-length songs for its release, she’s more than qualified to provide the soundtrack to Cadaver’s official after-party. Fingers crossed her covers of Neil Young’s "Heart of Gold" and the Pet Shop Boys’ "Heart" both make the list! (Trust us: They’re good!)
Live music will also be featured, with performances by local Internet stars Teen Witch, Shantasy Island, and Molly Soda, plus Juketastrophe, Molly Hewitt, and Claire Van Eijk. And, best of all? It’s totally free. RSVP at Do312 to skip the cover, and arrive early to lower your drink tab — PBR hosts an hour of complimentary brews from 9 to 10 p.m.
When: Tuesday, April 23, 9 p.m.
Where: Debonair Social Club, 1575 North Milwaukee Avenue (between North and Damen avenues); 773-227-7990.
