Title: Alright I almost don't want to
Post by: manmagic on May 12, 2017, 07:13:09 AM
but let's talk about the PWR BTTM news.

Like every other situation like this and for good reason, I'm having a hard time following exactly what is going on. I was planning on seeing them play next month and have been jamming their album non stop these last couple weeks, but now I don't know what to do.

Can't remember if PWR BTTM is legit or another FRNTRNNR.   I'm also too lazy to google it so I'll await your confirmation.

Alright, ALOT has happened since I first posted this.

Instead of it being very vague and confusing. It is now very serious and sad.

They were one of my favorite bands at this time last week. Such a sad thing to have happen again and again, but especially this time with it being who I thought were a trans/queer empowerment band.

Kudos to the majority of people associated with the band (minus the main two members) for how they have handled it though.

I never knew anything about his band other than that I didn't like the way they spelled their name. I would have definitely listened had I known what they were supposedly about before now. I'm glad I didn't now. I feel terrible for all the victims of that awful dude. Glad he's not getting away with it any longer.

I'm not a big fan of PWR BTTM but assuming the allegations against Ben are true, it's pretty insidious and terrible to gain entry into and trust of a group by saying the right things and purporting to believe the same things as other members of the group. Very sad for all involved.

Thats so frustrating. Such enjoyable music. People need to be good to each other though. I hope no one will make excuses for Ben. Its just not acceptable.

The article I linked explains it pretty well. I'm glad you're out of jail. Hopefully you can get help and stay out and stay clean.
