New York Night Train Happening is the latest spectacular multimedia party of MR. JONATHAN TOUBIN, the DJ/Conceptualist behind such legendary NYC parties such as Glasslands’ Animal Train Happening and Santos Party House’s DECLASSIFIED! The concept is yet another step towards the revival and revision of the New York nightlife underground’s proudest and most ambitious tradition, THE HAPPENING – as best exemplified by everything from Andy Warhol’s Exploding Plastic Inevitable, which fused lights, projection, live music, performance, and dance under the same umbrella, to similar examples spanning from the disco to early new wave era in spaces like Club 57, their New Wave Vaudeville Show, and the Mudd Club.

Initially conceived as a reaction to, on one hand, the assembly-line ho-hum of rock show presentation, and, on the other, the aesthetic bankruptcy and soul-less nature of the contemporary dance party, Toubin’s happenings have grown into a mighty rock and roll wrecking ball demolishing the boundaries between art, performance, and nightlife to reveal the pearly disco ball at its core – the best rock dance parties the 21st Century has yet to offer.

If you think this sounds like a bras d’honneur in the face of the mediocre, unimaginative, and economically exclusionary day-to-day mechanics of 21st Century art, music, and nightlife in general, you are correct. All aboard! New York Night Train Happening, the latest and greatest contemporary underground nightlife adventure, is coming to your town!

With AWESOME COLOR, THE INFINITY PEOPLE, ANNA COPA CABANNA, and much more! The Crofoot presents this show at THE OLD MIAMI, 3930 Cass Ave, Detroit.
