After a lengthy recovery from a freak accident where a car crashed through a hotel room and landed on him while he was asleep, Jonathan Toubin is ready to thrill crowds with his deeply dug musical selections again. His New York Night Train party will make its triumphant return to Brooklyn Bowl on May 6; that night’s lineup will include a set by him as well as appearances by Ian Svenonius and K-Holes, and there’ll be no cover. And in even better news, while Toubin will, according to his website, be “taking it much slower than previously,” he’ll be back in action around New York on a regular basis: He’ll return to spinning every Friday at Home Sweet Home, his monthly party at Glasslands returns May 12, and he’ll be spinning at Lincoln Center in July, and at the Afghan Whigs All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in Asbury Park come fall. Lineup and all his local dates below.
