Michele "Roya" Chinichian on Tongue Tied's Silliness and One-Year Anniversary Party

Michele Chinichian knows a thing or three about throwing a boffo birthday bash. For proof, look no further than the magically delicious affair she threw in honor of her own b-day in January, which overflowed with unicorns, balloons, rainbow-colored party favors, and other playful revelry.

Chinichian, who performs as DJ Roya, will attempt to one-up herself with another birthday blowout, this time in honor of Tongue Tied's One-Year Anniversary (subtitled "A Night of Love") on Saturday at Apollo's.
