The Styletones will bring the funk for a free show at the Casbah.
There's nothing worse than being broke around the holidays. Everyone's having parties and asking you to donate to charity or buy toys for tots, and you're just wondering how you're going to afford your secret Santa gift. Well, fret not, lovelies, because tonight the Casbah thanks you for another amazing year with a free show from San Diego gems like Lady Dottie and the Diamonds and the Styletones. They'll be joined by a SoundDiego favorite, the Howls, and Old Tiger. I just can't think of a better way to spend a Sunday night.
