Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Tunde Adebimpe (TV On The Radio) Playing Jonathan Toubin Benefit Friday

New Yorkers get a bad rap for being self-absorbed assholes (which isn't necessarily UNtrue), but one thing is for sure: in tragic times, we try our best to come together to help each other out. Our local music community experienced one such tragic time recently, when acclaimed DJ and nightlife wizard Jonathan Toubin was involved in a taxi accident in Portland, Oregan that left him in critical condition.

This Friday, Brooklyn Bowl will be hosting a benefit for Toubin that will feature great performances by several local artists whose lives he's touched - namely the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Stabbing Eastward featuring Tunde Adebimpe from TV On The Radio. Tickets are only $25 and all proceeds go toward his medical bills and care.  The iHeartJT Facebook group has also set up a PO Box for additional donations if you're unable to make it but still want to help out.

Grab a ticket, spread the word, and thanks to BrooklynVegan for the heads up.
