Gone Punk Rocking, Be Back Never - Converse Presents Free All Ages Residency at The Sinclair

Enter for a chance to win tickets. Registration starts Monday 4/20/15.

For five nights, Converse Rubber Tracks Live is taking over The Sinclair in Cambridge. Each night, local Boston bands who have recorded at a Converse Rubber Tracks recording studio will open for a line-up of internally recognized artists including The Replacements, The Descendents and Slayer.

“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.”

You can register for a chance to win tickets to one of the five shows. (We're rooting for Night #1 with The Replacements, Dinosaur Jr. and local favs The Young Leaves.) Tickets will be distributed at random.

The Young Leaves Lose Their Bassist

After a whirlwind season of releasing a record, touring, and growing support in their local scene, Holliston based distorted indie pop band The Young Leaves took to Facebook this morning to announced the departure of bassist Lindsey Nogueira.

"Hi. So as of yesterday, Lindsey is no longer in The Young Leaves. She's an excellent musician, great person, and the departure was COMPLETELY amicable. Lindsey rules and we'll always love her. With that said, we are continuing on as a 2-piece. I have an elaborate and weird rig being made right now so I can play bass and guitar simultaneously and it's going to get dumb...a good dumb. Anyway, thanks for being awesome everyone. See you in the pit."

Frontman Christopher Chaisson, who has lamented over previous bassist rotations in a 2012 article and who is credited for guitar and bass on their most recent record Alive and Well (Baldy Longhair Records), will take over both instruments for the time being. The Young Leaves are scheduled to play punk rock festival-extraordinaire FEST 13 in Gainesville, FL later this year.

Alive and Well can be purchased in digital format and on vinyl at Baldy Longhair Records online store.

The Young Leaves - 'Alive and Well' Record Release Show

Indie pop covered in sludge. Would have been cool in 1994, still cool in 2013. Just don't call them pop-punk

This Friday – Hang with Boston's indie pop band, The Young Leaves during their Record Release show with Born Without Bones, Save Ends and Betty Nico at O'Brien's Pub in Allston. 21+/$8/8pm doors.

Formed in 2006, The Young Leaves are a 3-piece indie rock band from Holliston, MA. Taking influence from bands such as Dinosaur Jr., Archers of Loaf, and Husker Du, The Young Leaves play loud, fast, and powerful sludge-pop that will make you think you traveled back in time to 1994.

Alive and Well (Baldy Longhair Records) is the band's third full length. Head over to Bandcamp for free downloads of the The Young Leaves' previously recorded EPs and LPs. And visit Baldy Longhair Records to purchase the limited edition colored 12" vinyl or colored cassette of Alive and Well.
