Stern Grove Festival 2011: Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Neko Case, the Dodos, the English Beat, and More
What you're doing on Sundays this summer.
You know what summer means in San Francisco -- uh, besides fog? It means free concerts on Sundays at Stern Grove, courtesy of the long-running Stern Grove Festival. Today, festival organizers announced the lineup for the festival's 74th consecutive year, a series of free outdoor concerts as good as you're likely to find anywhere. It kicks off June 19 with a show featuring Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings. And that's just the beginning. Scope the full Stern Grove 2011 lineup after the jump.
