Stern Grove Fest 2013 Lineup: Deltron 3030, Shuggie Otis, SF Symphony, and More

Ahhh, free concerts at Stern Grove.
Warm(er) nights and light evenings mean a number of things in San Francisco, and one of them is that it will soon be time to spend your Sunday afternoons relaxing on a lawn in Stern Grove, enjoying good live music for the cost of nothing. Yes, folks, the Stern Grove Festival begins June 16, and organizers just released the lineup for this year. It includes soulful guitar genius Shuggie Otis, celebrated NorCal hip-hop outfit Deltron 3030, Kronos Quartet, the SF Symphony, Michael McDonald and Boz Scaggs (!), and more. And yes, every one of these shows is free.

Here's the full lineup:

All concerts begin at 2 p.m. at Stern Grove (19th and Sloat), but the wise show up early to get seating close to the stage. And while admission is free to all, that doesn't mean you shouldn't make a donation to support the festival.

My Voice Nation Help

Shuggie Otis is surprisingly good live.  His voice is worse for wear, but his band is pretty tight.  He is also an excellent bb king style guitarist.
