DJ Set Playlist for Saint Etienne at Union Stage by Les Talusan

Last Friday, I had the pleasure of DJing for Saint Etienne for their 'Good Humor’ 20th anniversary show in DC, and what a fantastic night it was! So happy to hear them play all the songs in ‘Good Humor’ plus a bunch of my favorite songs. 

I’ve gotten several requests for my playlist for the evening so here it is, along with a handful of photos.

Thanks again for having me, Saint Etienne! It was truly a night to remember.
