On the morning of Thursday, December 8, Jonathan Toubin got the worst wakeup call imaginable. While he was sleeping in his room at the Jupiter Hotel, a Radio Cab crashed through the wall and drove all the way into his room, pinning him underneath. The New York DJ was visiting Portland for a couple nights to take part in the fifth anniversary of DJ Beyondadoubt's I've Got a Hole in My Soul dance party. Now, suffering incredibly serious injuries, he's in critical care at OHSU, staying in Portland indefinitely. A PayPal account has been set up for Toubin's aid, and you can help by sending money to, but additionally East End booker Gabe Lageson and his wife Michele McDonnell—both dear friends of Toubin's—have announced a benefit show in his honor, which will allow Toubin's father to remain here in Portland while his son is recovering in the hospital. Fittingly, DJ Beyondadoubt will be there spinning tracks, as well as plenty of other DJs and slop-rockers Cyclotron, plus a special band formed for the occasion including some members of the Dandy Warhols, and some surprise guests, too. It was a bizarre and terrible accident that's keeping Toubin in Portland; with tonight's benefit, perhaps we can show him, his family, and his fans across the globe that wonderful things can happen here in Portland as well.
