Girl About Town is happy to support local artist and musician Joe Castro for his opening art exhibit at Studio 27.28 with artist Mike Travato between 6 and 9 p.m. on Saturday, June 6th. "Mighty" Joe Castro's painted works are often set in a World filled with intense colors; intelligent and brooding, with scenes where the subjects are often just a little-bit skewed--leading you to take a deeper look into the haunted scenery of the image itself. Joe Castro is a local artist who was a vibrant member of Philly and Delaware's music scene; playing guitar for a number of acts over the years, including Nero, Swingline, and The Situation. Come to the exhibit to meet or say "Hi" to the artist and talk new music and art, and then head over to BAR ERA afterwards to hear tunes spun by Girl About Town's Carly (DJ Sally Cinnamon - spinning soul, indie, and rock favorites) accompanied by DJ Mod Revolve (Baggy, new wave, and Brit-pop classics); the songs begin at 9pm at Bar ERA and continue on throughout the evening.
