Party Rockers: Listen to Chrissy Tashjian of Thin Lips and Grace Vonderkuhn guest DJ on XPN Local
This Saturday night, Chrissy Tashjian of Thin Lips turns 34, and she’s eager to celebrate by sharing a hometown bill at South Broad Street’s Boot & Saddle with Wilmington rocker Grace Vonderkuhn. The two artists were on a U.S. tour together this month, but the final dates of it unfortunately had to be postponed due to the looming polar vortex. No worries, though; they’ll be back through the midwest in due time, and for Philly’s part, the Groundhog Day show is sure to be an even bigger celebration of pent-up rock and roll energy.
To warm up for the gig, Tashjian and Vonderkuhn swung by XPN studios to guest DJ on the Local Show this week. Each artist picked six songs; Tashjian, getting hype for Saturday, picked a set of party megabangers by The Muffs, Queen, Superhcunk and more. Vonderkuhn, on the other hand, went with her current heavy rotation jams, from classics by Buzzcocks and The The to currents by Mitski and Illuminati Hotties.
Listen to Chrissy and Grace’s guest DJ set in the player below; tickets are still available for the February 2nd Boot and Saddle concert, and more information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.
