Festival tickets too expensive for some

Anyone ever heard of the band Maroon 5? Can you name one of their songs? Me neither. The organizers of this summer’s newbo evolve festival are hoping that at least 4,000 folks have and can and are willing to fork over $375 for the three-day event.

Thanks to the recent tax break President Donald Trump has bestowed upon us, it’ll only take me five years to pay for my ticket (at a $1.50 a week). Really?
