Yeah Yeah Yeahs to headline gig for hospitalised DJ Toubin

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are to headline a benefit concert at New York's Brooklyn Bowl to raise funds for hospitalised DJ Jonathan Toubin.

Toubin is in a critical condition after a taxi cab crashed into his ground floor hotel room in Portland, Oregon earlier this month (Dec11).

The DJ, who is behind the New York Night Train parties, suffered numerous broken bones as well as injuries to his kidneys and liver.

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are headlining Friday's (16Dec11) gig in Brooklyn, with additional performances from Adebimpe's project Stabbing Eastward, Bear in Heaven and Butthole Surfers' Gibby Haynes to help fund Toubin's treatment.
