DJ Jonathan Toubin’s NY Night Train SOUL CLAP at SXSW 2014 Closing Party

Longtime Austinites may recall Jonathan Toubin from his college radio days at 91.7 KVRX or as a member of the band Churchbus, but nowadays Toubin is known best for his New York Night Train’s SOUL CLAP, his popular underground soul dance party across the United States.  He plays all original soul 45s from the 1960s as well as “uncommon upbeat cuts perfect for dancing the night away”, with clubs routinely sold out.

Toubin brings SOUL CLAP to Austin for the official SXSW closing party which is free and open to the public, and takes place Sunday, March 16, 8 pm at the Palm Door on Sixth (508 E. 6th St).

The party begins with four bands including: Kid Congo and The Pink Monkey Birds, led by Kid Congo Powers of Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds; Daddy Long Legs, a fast and raw blues trio making their debut in Austin; lo-fi 1960s-inspired garage band Habibi; and Vockah Redu and The Cru, who will bring “one of the most elaborated stage shows in all of the bounce genre.”

The closing party will also feature a thirty minute dance competition with a $100 prize, with Toubin as emcee. Hip-hop legend Boots Riley of The Coup will select the dance songs, and judges include Edwin Neal (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), Kid Congo Powers, Austin Brown (of Parquet Courts) and more!

Toubin will close out the night with Soul Clap after the dance-off.

Listen below to a live recording of Jonathan Toubin turning his “flaming o.g. 45rpm soul platters” at the SOUL CLAP and DANCE-OFF at the Brooklyn Bowl.
