Mr. Jonathan "New York Night Train" Toubin's DJ skills are world-renowned. Just ask the Wall Street Journal. And prior to his Soul Clap and Dance-Off set during this weekend's Bruise Cruise proper, he's spinning a mix of early '60s soul for the mainlanders tonight at the Vagabond.
For those who don't have eyes for the fine print, a $100 prize goes to the best shuck/jive combo out there on the dance floor. And in case there's incentive needed to get those knees knocking proper, the esteemed members of the Vivian Girls, Turbo Fruits frontman Jonas Stein, and our genial colleague Sean Pajot from Miami New Times will be among the judges for the competition. Make your city proud, and never say never. Doesn't that sound like fun?
Get a taste of Toubin's Soul Clap potential with this mix below:
