Last Wednesday night at The Sinclair in Cambridge, Converse Rubber Tracks Live put on a sick show to help close out 2015 in a big way. Featuring half of the legendary duo, OutKast, a packed house was lit as the main act, Big Boi, came on stage. Now I can honestly say that I missed the opening acts, and technically only heard the crowd screaming while Big Boi was walking on stage – I had floor seats to the Boston Celtics vs LeBron James and Cleveland Cavaliers, which I clearly wasn’t missing. So we were fortunate to literally walk in at the perfect time.
Surprisingly it was my first time at this particular venue, and also the first time that I had seen Big Boi perform, so I was especially hyped for this. “Bombs Over Baghdad” was what I used to listen to when I wanted to get amped up for high school football games or rugby matches, so I thought it was a perfect way to get the crowd fired up and ready for a tight show. I wasn’t able to get much video or photos since I came directly over from the Celtics game and my battery was running low, but among the other songs that he performed included “Ms. Jackson,” “So Fresh, So Clean,” “ATLiens,” and “Shutterbug”.
And in case you aren’t aware, Converse Rubber Track is a legit professional state-of-the-art studio in Boston that is free to the public for recording sessions.
