Jonathan Toubin: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Sep 5 2012
Comments

Jonathan Toubin might be the crown prince of American soul-funk DJs. Obsessed with obscure 45s from the '50s and '60s, the New York icon aims to produce the energy and pacing of a modern club night, but with gritty, raw tunes that almost no one except a few crazed collectors and spinners have heard before. Toubin fell out of commission after a nearly fatal freak accident in Portland last year, but now he's back, bringing his legendary DJ night and dance contest to West Coast audiences once again. Expect the usual parade of unknown floor-fillers from Toubin's vaults, plus sets from top-shelf local garage-rockers Mikal Cronin and Shannon and the Clams. Anticipate a sweaty good time.
