In the latest addition to the awesome Converse Rubber Tracks free show series in NYC, stoner metal royalty High On Fire will bring their tour to Music Hall of Williamsburg on August 15. Opening will be local brutalizers Blackest, ensuring that this will be a heavy experience. High On Fire are one of the best live bands around, and as usual with these free Rubber Tracks shows, you'll need tickets to get in, which go on "sale" Wednesday (7/30) at noon.
UPDATE: The show is actually part of Converse Rubber Tracks' first-ever tour which also features High on Fire headlining free ticketed shows in Boston, Toronto, LA, and San Francisco. All dates are listed below.
The last Rubber Tracks show in NYC was J Mascis and King Tuff's band Witch earlier this month (7/23). J Mascis plays NYC again when Heavy Blanket plays Union Pool and when his solo tour hits Bowery Ballroom in October. King Tuff also plays NYC again when his tour comes here for two shows in October.
