Last night, Cassie Coane (left) and Harley Viera-Newton (right) DJed the American Museum of Natural History annual gala, this year themed “Spring Safari” and sponsored by Lilly Pulitzer. It’s an event long awaited each spring because attendees get to eat meat entrees under gigantic preserved elephants.

What does a young pair of DJs do to live up to a spectacle like that (in a huge marble hall, no less)? Viera-Newton shares her playlist for the night. Dressed in Burberry, the playlist has a distincly British slant, like some colonial stranded in an Uptown jungle.

The Clash—Magnificent Seven

The Smiths—Ask

New Order—Bizarre Love Triangle
