We’ve some sad news to report. Jonathan Toubin, the DJ responsible for the ever-popular New York Night Train parties (which, if you haven’t attended, is a soul-filled night of booty shaking and feet shuffling) is currently in critical condition in a Portland hospital. Toubin, known as the Night Train Conductor, was in Portland for a soul party when a cab crashed through his hotel room wall and plowed into the DJ while he was asleep.
He was scheduled to fly back home and play tonight at Home Sweet Home and Cake Shop, respectively. A purveyor of good jams and great vibes around Brooklyn and Manhattan, we’re saddened to hear such news about a great DJ and all-around well-liked guy. Fortunately, his night at Home Sweet Home has been quickly converted into a relief fund for Toubin, so swing on by tonight, drink some Belvedere, and donate some cash to help to a New York staple in need. Suggested donation is $5.
