please call the police the report the crooks who did this.
City: Tucson, AZ
Bands: Jana Hunter and Castanets
[As Reported by pitchforkmedia.com and on both Jana Hunter and Castanet web sight}
So, the story is, last night we played in Tucson at solar culture. afterward, we loaded our stuff up, went downtown, had a drink, and went to a house to crash on the floor. en route, we damaged a door, making it such that the door won't close and such that eventually, before we return the vehicle to the rental company, we'll have to pay on the order of 2 grand to replace the door.
seeing as how we had an unsecured vehicle, ray (castanets) slept in the van. sometime during the night, some brave fuck(s) very quietly opened the back door and took what they could carry. we assume their were more than one of them given all the shit they managed to walk away with. we're gathering what serial numbers we can, but in the meantime, here's a rudimentary list:
fender classical guitar (ser.#9505151116)
new boss 20xl loopstation
boss reverb/delay pedal
original digitech whammy pedal
original b k butler tubedriver overdrive pedal
peavey 6 mixer (ser.#k0344300)
shure beta 98/s
custom flashlight circuit-bended thing
late 60's blue fender music master guitar
line 6 delay pedal
mutron volume/wah pedal
boss tuner pedal
digitech metal master
If you have any info pleased contact the Tuscon police, also they have put up a They've set up an e-mail address at firstname.lastname@example.org at which they'll gladly accept Paypal donations to help them replace their gear.
