Yeah Yeah Yeahs + More To Play a Jonathan Toubin Benefit Friday Night at Brooklyn Bowl
Much-loved New York DJ Jonathan Toubin remains in a Portland hospital after a car drove through the ground-floor hotel room he was sleeping in last week, and another NYC benefit has been planned to help pay for his hospital and medical bills. This Friday night, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Heavy Trash, Stabbing Eastward (Tunde Adebimpe and Ryan Sawyer), Royal Baths, and DJs Gibby Haynes (Butthole Surfers), Billy Miller (Norton Records), Bear In Heaven, Leo Fitzpatrick, Habibi, and Slowdance will be playing all night. Tickets are $25 to $100, and 100% of proceeds go to Toubin. Tickets here. Last weekend, benefits were held for Toubin at several locations, including Home Sweet Home, Cake Shop and Motor City. If you can't make it this Friday, Jonathan's family also started a PayPal account. You can contact firstname.lastname@example.org about making donations. [Via Brooklyn Vegan]
Here's a little documentary on Jonathan, too.
