In the last year New York Night Train’s Soul Clap and Dance-Off exploded worldwide to become North America’s most popular soul party! The concept is simple – all night dancing to wild 45s of superstar maximum rock and soul DJ Mr. Jonathan Toubin and, in the middle, a $100 dance contest judged by a panel of local celebrities. Recession-friendly mass entertainment (always $5), the dance party/spectacle has brought its excitement to domestic markets all the way from Portland, Oregon to Portland, Maine and internationally from Tel Aviv to Mexico City – including monthlly residencies in New York, Chicago, LA, San Francisco, Oakland, and PDX. Also the Dance-Off portion features judges from every edge of music and culture from classic subcultural icons like Mike Watt and Jello Biafra, to rock stars Andrew Van Wyngarden (MGMT) and Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), to interesting cultural figures like Satanic Priestess Karla LaVey and Green Party Vice Presidential Candidate Matt Gonzalez to your favorite neighborhood heroes. Catch The Soul Clap!
“Jonathan Toubin is the only person we can call a “professional DJ” without involuntarily making a jack-off motion with our hand…. his parties are like what Ancient Stonehenge was like if it was, as archaeologists theorize, filled with people dressed many times better than you completely losing their shit.”
– Mike de Leon, VICE
