Online Gig Announced

We’re really excited to announce a special online gig so that you can
experience a Stone Foundation gig in your own homes during these strange times!
 
It will take place on Saturday April 4th when we were scheduled to be
playing the Mojo Club in Hamburg – one of our favourite ever places to play.
 
The online gig will be an as-live playback of never-before-seen footage
of our entire gig at the Islington Assembly Hall in 2018.
Special guests at the show included
Paul Weller,
Steve White,
Kathryn Williams and Graham Parker
 
HOW IT WILL WORK:
 
On the evening, a video will play on both the Stone Foundation
Facebook and YouTube pages. All you have to do is tune in.
Smart TVs will be able to support the YouTube stream.
 
At 7pm (UK time), Kurtis Powers (The Face Radio)
will be DJing from Brooklyn, New York to warm up
for the gig, just like a normal support act!
 
At 8pm the footage of Stone Foundation will begin.
Everyone watching will be seeing the same footage at the
same time so you will be able to comment along.
The band will be replying to comments and chatting
themselves. It will work like a Facebook watch party.
 
We hope that you will be able to join us for a very special evening of
Stone Foundation music online. We’ve tried to ensure that everything
is as close to a normal gig as it can possibly be under these circumstances!
