Saint Stone Virtual Concert

Artist: Saint Stone
Presented on: Wednesday, October 14, 2020

SAINT STONE is a quartet of tender queers from Niagara, on the shared territory of the Haudenosaunee, Anishinaabeg, Huron-Wendat, and Neutral peoples. STONE for the first brick thrown at the Stonewall Riots, and SAINT for the queer and trans people who were told that they were anything less than transcendent. This punk/grunge/indie group screams and shouts about what it’s like for some of us to live and love in this world. Their sound is unique, forward-driving, and lovingly described as “catchy, yet depressing.”
