- Five Dollar Priest will play at the August 18 event.
August 18. It’s been a hell of a year for Jonathan Toubin. In December 2011, the DJ who’d rescued the city from techno/house music hell by spinning tough vintage soul and garage rock 45s at his popular New York Night Train happenings, was asleep in a Portland, Oregon, motel room when a taxicab crashed through the wall, pinning him underneath. But after several operations, numerous benefit events, and much physical therapy, Toubin returned to the decks in May, and now he’s bringing his Soul Clap Dance Party, featuring a live set by Five Dollar Priest (with Grasshopper of Mercury Rev) and a dance contest judged by yours truly and others, to BSP Lounge. (It’s Not Night: It’s Space rocks August 2; Team Love Records’ New Paltz compilation album release gets celebrated August 24.) 8pm. $5. Kingston. (845) 481-5158; Bsplounge.com.
