No, we’re not talking about Aaron Hernandez. Converse Rubber Tracks is setting up a free week of shows in Boston, with five days of diverse lineups playing in the sneaker company’s hometown. Among the lineups: Slayer, along with Doomriders! That’s definitely bound to be a more intimate show than the Mayhem Fest, which they’ll also be playing this Summer. All of the bands playing will be accompanied by a local Boston-area band that recorded at Converse Rubber Tracks,having earned a free recording session. You’re going to have to wait until Monday (20), to get a chance to attend the free shows, but you can do that here.
