El Toubin

After a freak accident put Jonathan Toubin in critical condition last year, he finally came out of the hospital this past January. Last week, we were excited to announce that he'll be part of this year's NXNE lineup, and we since found out that his official welcome back party is a free New York Night Train party at Brooklyn Bowl on May 6 with a huge lineup including Ian Svenonius (Chain and the Gang) (DJ Set), Mr Fine Wine (WFMU's Downtown Soulville) (DJ Set), Josh Styles (Smashed! Blocked!) (DJ Set), Kid Congo Powers, The K-Holes, Daddy Long Legs, Expensive Shit, Performances by Anna Copa Cabanna & Hula Hoop Harlot Melissa Anne, Visuals by B.A. Miale & Spencer Bewley. RSVP is open. The flier for this show is below.

He has other upcoming apperances too, including his weekly parties at Home Sweet Home (every Wednesday) and his monthly Soup Clap and Dance Off party at Glasslands. He'll also host a silent disco at Midsummer Night Swing at Lincoln Center's Damrosch Park on July 7 with JD McPherson. Tickets are available. And he'll be at ATP I'll Be Your Mirror NJ.

All dates and flier below...

Good for him. This freak accident has made him a household name in Hipsterville USA and now he can tour like a rockstar. Glad to see him back.

7:58 you clearly have no idea at all about how much he DJ'ed before the accident. He was sleeping in a hotel because he was "touring" when a cab landed on him. Asshole

I don't think 7:58 meant any harm. Seems to me that he's simply acknowledging that, through this shitty, unfortunate event, the light at the end of the tunnel is that Jonathan will be able to prosper even more.

He was in a hotel, in the nude, possibly w Frohawk, unclear if he was sleeping when he was hit by a cab.

Wow, there are so many spineless, pathetic, losers hiding behind keyboards who post such lame shit. Willing to bet 99% would not say a word in public given the chance. Fucking move back to wherever you came from.

Ignore the trolls, this is great news.

Great news indeed! Now can I get my benefit money back from him? I'm straving and he's about to make shit load of money.

Tour like a Rockstar? A shit load of money? how much does one get for playing the world renown Brillo Box in Pittsburg PA?

In these times you rarely hear DJ that functions in the traditional capacity, as a devotee to their own aesthetic and ambassador of a style that is in this case neglected. Toubin does this all while creating a fun and welcoming atmosphere. He deserves the cult status, small-time success and to be able to tour accordingly.

That cartoon pic is suppose to be Jonathan Toubin? It looks like Tony Danza.

Somebody get 5:18 his money back - he's straving, and the concept of giving escapes him.

7:58 and 9:59 really (as much as this has almost become a painful BV meme now) nailed it. People here are too touchy.
