Tavi Gevinson

By Natasha Wasinksi

Tavi Gevinson is adding music to her growing repertoire of endeavors to dominate before graduating from Oak Park and River Forest High School.

After tonight's 6 p.m. screening of the award-winning short "Cadaver" at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Gevinson jets to Debonair Social Club in Wicker Park to work the afterparty.

The just-turned 17-year-old from Oak Park is a bit too young to join the urban hip for a round of PBR (free until 10 p.m.) but she will control the club's music.

It won't be Gevinson's first - nor presumably last - stint as a guest DJ. In February she explained her musical musings on KCRW, a National Public Radio affiliate in So Cal.

Here's a best guess for what this wonder chick might add to that playlist tonight.

Gevinson recorded both songs in anticipation of "Cadaver." Now's her time to show off those vocal cords.
Neil Young's "Heart of Gold"
Pet Shop Boys' "Heart"

Icona Pop's "I Love It"
Who doesn't? Gevinson's pal Lena Dunham a.k.a. Hannah confirmed our careless love for the tune when she lets everything loose in a nightclub in season two of "Girls."

W.G. Snuffy Walden's "My So-Called Life" Score
Gevinson's all for figuring it out. So take pause, reminisce and mull over the fact that all that teenage angst and grunge apparel might have been good for you, too. 

Bayside Boys' "Macarena"
The body-moving, chart-topping remix of 1996 - the year Gevinson was born - just to remind you how young she is (and for many, how much more accomplished, too).

"Edge Of Seventeen" - Stevie Nicks
A shout out to Gavinson's home girl is a must and the only appropriate way to wrap up the night.
