The Stone Foxes
DOORS – 4PM / SHOW – 5PM – ALL AGES!
The Stone Foxes
From their youthful days of quad-lead-singer-rock-n-roll to their indie-roots-rock-tour-mania all the way to their brief stint as a Swedish synth-pop collective, the Brothers Koehler (Shannon and Spence) have remained the creative anchors of San Francisco’s The Stone Foxes.
And now, with Spence pulling a full-on Brian Wilson, writing songs in his sand-filled Malibu beach mansion, Shannon has taken on the role of “full-time microphone boy,” leading the charge in the studio and on the road. In this new set-up, the dudes still pull from a hot pool of talented collaborators, both familiar and new.
With the release of their latest EP Gold, it’s clear that the hill-folk turned flat-landers have evolved their studio technique from “point the horn at the gut bucket” to a fuller and more sophisticated sound. They’ve managed to capture and even elevate the unadulterated joy of seeing them live. Even so, one thing remains eternally true of the Stone Foxes; if you die without seeing them live, it will have been a wasted life.
“A distinct joy.”
– Consequence of Sound
“Irresistible.” – USA Today
“thunderous electric guitar riffs.” – NPR
“The Hooks…is a magical charged-up power pop exemplified by their self-released EP “10,000 Feet”. It’s loaded with bright, dueling guitars.” Duncan Scott Davidson – SF Chronicle
Anthemic Irish balladeers, the name says it all: they have the hooks (and the looks) indeed, and in spades. With a nod to the Kinks, and the Clash, their joyful, bratty call to arms is infectious and stays with you long after that last Guinness has been quaffed”.
“The Hooks forge their own galloping new hybrid of Irish…they do not disappoint, and sound fresh and original”.
We are excited to be able to bring you live music again!
