While San Francisco's Christopher Evans, better known as DJ Toph One, remains in the intensive care unit with a broken pelvis, the community has already come to his side, arranging benefits to help the popular DJ who was hit by a car over the weekend.

Friends have created a Facebook page, where fans can drop a note of support for Evans, who was struck Sunday in a hit-and-run accident.

According to Facebook, a benefit is planned at Public Works on Jan. 20 at 9 p.m., which will feature sets by J Boogie, Chris Orr, B Cause -- and more. Another event is being held at Som Bar

on Jan. 22, with Sake One, DJ Stef,

Doc Fu, and Rascue.

Both events will accept donations and a

percentage of bar sales will go toward Evans' recovery.


Evans was hit on Sunday around midnight as he rode his bike in the Ingleside neighborhood. According to police, Evans was hit by a car after he fell from his bike at the corner of Ocean and Geneva.

The driver sped off, leaving Evans seriously injured.

Although firefighters nearby witnessed the accident, there is no vehicle description and police have no details on the driver. However, if anyone did witness this accident and has information, please contact the Police Department's anonymous tip line at 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
