San Francisco’s Stone Foxes play swampy, sweaty, bluesy, throwback, bar-­band rock & roll with all the intensity of a bunch of guys who just invented the sound last week. Less slick than The Black Keys and less weird than Tom Waits, but channeling some of their same shout­at­-the-­world intensity, the instrument­-swapping six-­piece starts a three­-week residency at the Bootleg tonight. They’ll no doubt be testing out new tracks, including the aptly named “She Said Riot,” from their current album­ in­ progress, Twelve Spells, which they’re releasing one track at a time, the first Friday of every month, via SoundCloud. Expect a frenetic live show led by brothers Spence and Shannon Koehler, the latter of whom is prone to launching himself into the audience mid–harmonica solo.
