NY NIGHT TRAIN SOUL CLAP & DANCE-OFF with JONATHAN TOUBIN and the NY NIGHT TRAIN SHADOW DANCERS!
Shake a tail feather ‘til 4AM as the world’s favorite soul party comes home to Brooklyn Bowl for an action packed night dancing to Jonathan Toubin’s big bad 1960s soul vinyl dynamite accompanied by the fabulous New York Night Train Shadow Dancers! Get in the 1AM $100 Dance-Off with DJ Austin Brown of Parquet Courts, MC Steve Myers of Afghan Whigs, and distinguished panel of judges. Jonathan Toubin, who VICE Magazine calls "the only DJ we actually like," and Rolling Stone says is "the most liked man in the soul music scene,” was awarded 2015's "BEST DJ" in the 60th anniversary Village Voice "Best of NYC." Of his ten years of 2000+ gigs at hundreds of nightclubs, rock concerts, and major music festivals on five continents, Toubin’s Soul Clap and Dance-Off has come the furthest. Emerging from humble Williamsburg art gallery roots, the Clap is a global institution that is the annual official closing party at Austin’s SXSW, has its own five-volume LP compilation series on Norton Records, Souvenirs of the Soul Clap, had its own night at Lincoln Center Midsummer Night Swing, and has played to more people in more places than any other soul party in recent memory. Catch the Clap!

This 45 hoarder made soul music fun again with his Soul Clap & Dance Off parties, where five-hour sets of rare grooves and B-sides provided a fleshy alternative to the club scene’s industrial snarl. Instead of bucking the trends of American pop music for some underground alternative, Toubin has made his name by embracing pop’s connective tissue, tracing the rhythm and blues, soul, and rock and roll of the nineteen-fifties and sixties. – The New Yorker, Nov, 2016
