The Rock 'n' Sock Hop for Jonathan Toubin: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jan 18 2012

Late last year, celebrated New York DJ Jonathan Toubin suffered a freak car accident — in his hotel room. While pulling into Portland's Jupiter Hotel parking lot, a taxi driver hit the wrong pedal and sent his cab barreling into Toubin's room on the ground floor. Toubin, who is best known for his rock and soul-focused New York Night Train parties, was pinned under the car, and left in critical condition. He's still hospitalized, but is now walking, talking, and listening to his records. Benefit parties are happening around the country for Toubin, and the San Francisco edition will feature local rockers Ty Segall, Shannon and the Clams, Hank IV, Lenz, DJ Primo, and more. It promises to be an excellent night of music, and all the proceeds will benefit Toubin.

  • 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.'"
