Soul Hippie Allen Stone Doesn’t Want Your Sex

Hard to get bluer eyes than this blue-eyed soul singer, but Stone’s got the chops, and the integrity, to back it up


“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).
