Soul Hippie Allen Stone Doesn’t Want Your Sex
Published: October 23, 2013
“I want to explore new colors now,” he said. “I want to dig deeper and deeper into my folk side, but also my throwback greasy R&B side.”
Whatever he does, he will do it on his own terms.
“I’d rather sell 100,000 by being me than 3 million by conjuring up a character,” he said. “Don’t get me wrong: It’s nice to look good and dress good, if that’s your kind of thing. But I always thought soul music should be transparent. And I have a dirty soul, you know what I mean? I am the counterculture of soul music, and I try getting to the soul of issues that are typically grimey and greasy, not pretty and cute.”
Allen Stone performs at 10:15pm. Other notable acts are Ram Herrera (Tejano 7pm), Tropicante (salsa/Latin jazz 4:45pm) and Mel Waiters (blues, 8:15pm).
