Bar Pink Hosts the Heart of the Funk


I have a dilemma. One of my best friends in the world also happens to be the drummer for the Styletones. In two weeks, the band celebrates the release of their record at Winston's. The dilemma? The show is on the same night I've committed to the Howls CD release show at the Casbah. Fortunately, the Styletones are bringing the funk to Bar Pink tonight, so for other people like me who have a hard time getting to OB, we can pre-celebrate the release. The record is awesome, and I'm sure they'll let you pick one up early if you catch them tonight in North Park.
