Chain And The Gang, Eleanor Friedberger To Play Jonathan Toubin Benefit Next Month


A benefit for the storied New York DJ Jonathan Toubin, who’s still recuperating from the freak accident in which he was hit by a taxi while asleep in a Portland hotel room earlier this month, will take place on January 12 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Among those on the quite-stuffed bill: Chain & The Gang (the new project from Nation of Ulysses/Make-Up frontman and frequent New York Night Train DJ Ian Svenonius, who’s also spinning at Zebulon this Saturday with the covers benefiting Toubin); Eleanor Friedberger; Shilpa Ray; and a DJ set by Dirtbombs leader Mick Collins, as well as a raffle to raise more funds to help offset costs stemming from the accident. Tickets go on sale tomorrow at noon for $20, and should tickets be available at the door they’ll cost $25. The full lineup is below.
