Man, I’m glad I double checked this email! Especially towards the end of the week and over the weekend, I tend to glance at them without really paying attention. But next week on April 30th at The Sinclair in Harvard Square, will be a night of free performances from Chance The Rapper, Action Bronson and Michael Christmas. And this is only 1 of the 5 nights full of free music for the Massachusetts community. Making sure there is something for everyone, they invited other acts such as The Replacements, Passion Pit, Slayer, and much more. So s/o Converse for hooking it up!
And since I haven’t posted anything from Action Bronson or Chance The Rapper, here’s the official music video for “Baby Blue”. I’m surprised they are the first to do something around Eddie Murphy’s ‘Coming To America’ movie. And you gotta love Action, he almost sounds like an old school Ghostface Killah, but white ~
Here’s the official Press Release with more details about the event, Converse and more~
“In anticipation of Converse’s momentous move from North Andover to Boston, we wanted to bring our Converse Rubber Tracks music platform to the city in the most incredible way possible,” said Jed Lewis, Converse Global Music Marketing Director. “The city of Boston has always supported us and this free, five-day concert series featuring local artists is our way of showing our gratitude and appreciation to the residents who continue to embrace Converse as part of the community.”
