Each month, one of CHIRP Radio’s tastemaker DJs curates a selection of vinyl specially designed to make your ears happy. This month’s installment is curated by DJ Paul Anderson.

We’re Here, We’re Queer: Queer Artists of the 21st Century

Fever Ray – Radical Romantics (2023)
Karin Dreijer (they/them) deconstructs gender and love, then attempts to put them all back together again through masterful usage of vocal modulations and synths on one of CHIRP’s top ten albums of 2023.

Against Me! – Transgender Dysphoria Blues (2014)
Celebrating the 10th anniversary of this landmark record, Chicago’s Laura Jane Grace (she/her) releases her angst, fear, and rage in a glorious blaze that puts cis punk to shame.

Shamir – Heterosexuality (2022)
Don’t let the title fool you, Shamir (he/him) presents this electrifying record that uses lo-fi indie rock, R&B, and a dynamic voice to explore the margins of language, labels, and beyond.

Scissor Sisters – Scissor Sisters (2004)
Still just as sleazy, fabulous, and daring as when it first hit the airwaves twenty years ago, this debut from the Scissor Sisters puts the glam back in glam rock.

Step into a realm where the music takes center stage and vinyl records reign supreme. Introducing Both Sides Now: A CHIRP Vinyl Listening Bar — a monthly oasis for music aficionados and introverts alike. Nestled in the cozy upstairs room of Schubas Tavern, this unique event happens every first Wednesday of the month. Our vinyl listening bar, inspired by the captivating tradition popularized in post-World War II Japan, celebrates the pure joy of listening. Embracing the ethos of listening bars around the world, we prioritize the sublime experience of vinyl, brought to life through stellar sound systems. Experience your favorite albums played front to back in full high fidelity, while enjoying drink and food offerings from Schubas Tied House. Let the DJs from CHIRP Radio 107.1FM curate the sonic journey each month as you savor the symphony. “Both Sides Now” is your sanctuary, an introvert’s dream where the focus is on the music, not loud conversations or bustling dance floors. Join us and immerse yourself in the world of vinyl, one needle drop at a time.

This show is at Schubas
