East End has announced a benefit for Jonathan Toubin, the New York DJ who was seriously injured last week when a Radio Cab crashed into his room at the Jupiter Hotel. The medical expenses are a bit of a snarl right now, and East End is raising funds that will enable Toubin's father to stay here in Portland while he is recuperating in the hospital.

According to the IheartJT Facebook page, Toubin's family says, "The Toubin family is so grateful for the love and support of everyone at this emotional time. Jonathan is still in critical condition and needs your positive thoughts and prayers for a quick recovery. Please keep your love and energy flowing."

East End's benefit will take place this Friday, December 16. The lineup will include DJ Beyonda, DJ A Train, a band with some members of the Dandy Warhols, and perhaps some other acts to be confirmed. Additionally, the Paypal that has been set up to aid Toubin is ihearttoubin@gmail.com.
