Being under 18 can be tough. You can’t drive, get a credit card or bet on greyhound racing. Even worse, you hardly ever get to see your favourite bands play because unless you go in for Lady Gaga or Black Eyed Peas, most gigs are in pubs or bars. So unless you have an older sibling that looks a lot like you and is willing to give up their I.D, you’re shit out of luck. That’s why it’s cool that Converse put on this underage festival in London last month. Featuring great acts like Egyptian Hip-Hop and New Young Pony Club, it gave cool kids a chance to enjoy some awesome live music. And, you know, it kept them off the streets for a while which is always good. Nice one Converse. You should do one down here.
