Langhorne Slim returns to the Casbah for the second time in 2010.
There are so many options for you to choose from tonight. At the Casbah, you have Langhorne Slim, who shreds the bar every single time he returns, which is probably why this Pennsylvanian keeps coming back. Yesterday Magazine kicks off two nights of their issue release parties at the Ruby Room with a "secret guest"... unless you follow it on Twitter and know that the secret guest is none other than the Silent Comedy. Pussy Galore offers two great locals, Dave Alvin takes over the Belly Up, and the Ken Club and Soda Bar have great lineups, too.
