Missed out on tickets to SITG? Or just can’t be bothered to battle the 18 hour drive up to Byron Bay? What ever your reason may be for missing the festival, you can still get a slice of the SITG action sans tent pegs, gumboots and over-priced beer.
Allen Stone is the fresh breath of blue-eyed soul we have been waiting for. This Seattle-born son of a preacher man has been wowing audiences since a YouTube clip of him performing in his mother's living room gained the attention of Conan O’Brien's music people and many other US talk shows after that. Stone has been compared to Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and Prince, but we suggest you make up your own mind and see him at the Northcote Social Club.
