The Stone's been open maybe two or three years now. It was actually opened by John Zorn as a place for people to play more adventurous type music. I feel like it's kind of the torch bearer of what the Knitting Factory used to be in the '80s and what Tonic was in the '90s—a place for musicians that don't necessarily play financially viable music to have a place to express themselves and for people to come see it. But it's a tiny, tiny place, in an old Chinese restaurant. If you didn't know it was there, you'd walk right by, there's just a little sign on the door. It's not the most comfortable place to go see a show, there's rarely any air-conditioning on in the summertime and they don't serve drinks. It caters to the old school scene but it's also really good about supporting the new school as well. There's always a cover charge, but the interesting thing is it's totally non-profit so 100% of the door goes to the musicians. So whoever is playing decides what they want the cover to be, usually $10 a night, sometimes it's $20 a night. But they set up a guest curator each month to put the shows together, with 100% going back to the musicians which is pretty incredible.
