DJ Jonathan Toubin with Daddy Long Legs LIVE
When March 31, 2016
08:00 PM - 08:30 PM
All aboard the New York Night Train for a late evening of top cocktails and cooling out in a warm 1930s jazz basement... Swing to Jonathan Toubin's sexiest and most exquisite mid-century modern black music: post-war blues, rhythm and blues, early rock'n'roll, early soul, vocal groups, gospel, rhumba boogie, mambo rock, and more.
NYC's "Best DJ" (Village Voice, VICE, etc) strings together tonight's entire soundtrack live - exclusively from the original authentic 1950s two-minute 45rpm 7-inch records. Don't miss this rare opportunity to hear the champagne of vinyl turned by a master in one of the finest sound systems and listening rooms the Empire City has to offer. Get down in the basement! The intimate confines of The Roxy Hotel NYC's 1930s-style jazz cellar The Django... It'll be a hoot!

Featuring live sets by Daddy Long Legs. From the esteemed Norton Records label comes one of the wildest and most exciting groups of the current roots and blues revolution! Daddy Long Legs-named for its harp-blowing, blues-bellowing frontman, is a blues hollerer who blurs any definition by age or color. He growls, barks, yelps, and wails without sounding like an imitation of anyone or anything. This is simply pull-the-cord-and-let-the-snot-fly blues.
Their ”Evil Eye On You” LP was definitely not an attempt to domesticate the sound of Daddy Long Legs in a studio setting; the twelve cuts are wild and wooly and real. Infuse a few hisses and pops into the tracks and it would be easy to believe this music was recorded a few decades ago, but no – Daddy Long Legs is happening right now, boys and girls.
