Stone Foxes Ooze Whiskey and Oil at Casbah

San Francisco blues-rock quartet the Stone Foxes opened their set with "Cotto," a song about a Puerto Rican boxing champion who lost in a famous bout with Manny Pacquiao in the 12th round. Fans looked on eagerly as the Foxes delivered a commanding ballad featuring dance-friendly rhythms and a powerful breakdown. From there, the Foxes continued working the crowd with a mastery of ass-kicking, hard-rock stage presence.

Having opened for the likes of the Black Keys and Cage the Elephant, it's no secret that the Foxes success lies in their ability to create a brand of dirty rock ’n’ roll that oozes sweat, smelling of whiskey and motor oil.

The crowd stayed captivated throughout the set and sang along to "King Bee," a cover of blues legend Slim Harpo's 1957 hit about a male bee trying to enter a females hive to "make honey." It's easy to see why the Stone Foxes made a buzz in the Bay Area, and from the response at Casbah, it looks as if they're now making fans all over. Combining the fuzzed-out guitars from the early ’70s, and an attitude reminiscent of Patrick Swayze in Roadhouse, the Foxes seem poised to take over the indie-blues scene.
