    AGGRESSIVE CONFIDENCE is what marks rapper Steve Stone's music, a reasonable stance given his recent rise from an independent regional artist to one with national popularity. With Stone's latest album, "2 Birds, 1 Stone," he believes that he is more seasoned and ready to take on the world, an attitude highlighted by songs such as "The Reason," in which Stone claims that he and his label mates are the reason fans will come out to shows. Stone will perform at 7 p.m. at Club 66, 1951 Ashland St., Ashland, with special guests DJ Webz, Tragedy 503, Ugly Kid and more. Tickets for this 21-and-older show can be purchased online at www.brownpapertickets.com for $10 or $15 at the door.
