Yeah but they also sell most of their shirts for $20+

I know this doesn't involve Attack Attack but I bought a tank top for 40 bucks last year

That's highway robbery if I've ever seen it.

This sounds dick-ish, but it's not, just an honest question:

Why does anyone care? Why not just show up, check it out, and buy it?

What's the appeal in a thread like this?

Sometimes if someone sees something they might like they could bring more money or if there's not much they like they could bring less? no one wants to show up with a hundred bucks in a sweatfest like warped, I hate when bands pack up and leave early because why would I walk around with shirts all day regardless or not if I have a bag if I'm going to get pushed around and engage in a lot of physical activity I'd rather buy it toward the end. Not that the last part had much to do with the first haha but I've had times where I've saved lots thinking there'd be a ton of merch I'd want and ended up buying 1-2 shirts or nothing when I could have bought tickets to other shows or something else.

Interesting.

I think 9 out of 10 bands take card, if that helps you. A lost card can be cancelled immediately and is free to replace. Plus, it easily fits inside an iPhone case so if you're bringing a phone, you're bringing your money.

I guess it doesn't hurt, I just can't believe there's such a "market" for this kind of info.

I like to bring a shirt I won't wear again, wear it until it gets too sweaty, and then buy a shirt. haha

Although a lot of bands do take cards, you have to think about the crowd of warped. I, myself have one, but pretty much anyone younger than 18 isn't going to have one. Plus I personally don't really enjoy wasting time browsing booths, I prefer to just go in knowing what I want to buy and then be done quickly so there's more time to actually watch bands. Just a personal preference, but I do see where you're coming from.

Insightful.

I guess, lately, Warped Tour hasn't been a rush for me. There's always at least an hour for me to shop without missing anyone worthwhile.

I've never seen that as common as you describe it though mostly the bigger bands have that from what I've seen but you can make a valid argument that you can use the atm if there is one where your venue is although the fees are a beotch.

It's technically already been out for a while, was a hidden "track" before the main part of the album. You can find it online if you look, should be pretty easy. Probably just a Fearless cash grab here.

I know some of the tracks have been done acoustically, but I dont think the entire album has--and if it has, not in one package. If the right price may be worth getting.
