The Fox Theater, Oakland California | Another Planet


UnderCover, Faultline Studios and KPFA are honored to present an encore tribute to Sly & The Family Stone's iconic album, STAND!. 1 band per song, 9 Bay Area Bands, all curated by Guest Music Director David Moschler. We are also thrilled to announce that we will have several original members of Sly & The Family Stone making appearances as well including Rustee Allen, Greg Errico, Jerry Martini, Cynthia Robinson, and Freddie Stone. 

The 1st Annual Sly & The Family Stone Convention is convening in the Den at the Fox just prior to the event for a series of panel discussions as well as an opportunity to meet members of The Family Stone. For more information, click here.
*Please note that the convention is a separate event from UnderCover.

Sly & The Family Stone is the first multi-gendered and multi-racial rock band to make it big on both a national and international level and The Bay Area is honored to have been their home. The 1969 album preaches messages of celebrating diversity, strength in community, and positivity.
