No Age Protests Converse, Nike at Converse-Sponsored Show
Punk rockers No Age aren’t afraid to make a political statement, even if it’s against a sponsor. The Los Angeles duo recently took a stand against working conditions in Nike and Converse factories at a Converse-sponsored show in Barcelona, Spanish website Indiespot reported.
The band took time out of their set to present a video about the conditions of the factories, which Indiespot points out mirrors a lot of this article. The whole thing went down while frontman Randy Randall let his guitar distort and feedback. After the video, the show went on as normal. No Age ended the show by saying “Thanks, Converse!”
