Today's Local Music: The Stone Foxes

The 75th season of San Francisco’s Stern Grove Festival is underway, and this Sunday’s (07.01) show should have the audience on its feet. The opening act is our featured local music of the day, the feel-good San Francisco band, The Stone Foxes. They’ll be followed by the legendary Preservation Hall Jazz Band from New Orleans. Tickets are – well, tickets aren’t necessary. Just show up! Music begins about 2pm, and parking is nearly impossible.
