How were These New Puritans? Could they pull anything off in daylight and 95 degree heat? Worth paying for to see tonight at MHOW?

wish this had actually been free and not entry based on a $20 dollar 'donation' or $20 subscription to the magazine. I'm not paying $20 for these new puritans.I didn't have 20 dollars anyway, i had to leave when they told me that.

"should i go to this? i cant decide"

Did you go?

"How were These New Puritans?"

They were boring and seemingly untalented at Misshapes.

"Worth paying for to see tonight at MHOW?"

probably not, though there are three bands total playing the show.

"wish this had actually been free and not entry based on a $20 dollar 'donation'"

It was never advertised as free, but I also assumed this event would be free when I first heard about it.
