    So ive got a case of the cant-sleeps so i was reading up on craigslist and found this post linking to Matt Costa's blog. He played a show the other night in my city and apparently had ALL their gear stolen from the locked venue.

    This makes me sick. Heres the post...

    Ugh. I had my car broken into about 100 feet from that venue last month aswell. Hopefully they were able to make it back to the US/ get back on the tour. That sucks bigtime though.

    Man that sucks. Nothing lower than stealing something that could potentially mean a lot to the owner (sentimental value and what not).

    Not to take away from the seriousness of this, because this really does suck, but...

    An ES-335 in seafoam green? Man, that must look awesome. And of course it'll be easy to find the little snots decided to go to the pawn shops with this stuff.

    I know nothing about Winnipeg but it sounds like an inside job to me.

    Yeah. It really DID look awesome. I've been drooling over Matt's two Gibsons for quite some time now, and looking at my pictures from his gig two weeks ago is making me squirm. It just sucks so hard for him.
     
  9. i was just thinking the same thing, man all the ES's are so sexy anyways
     
  10. That's really sad. When you're on the road and someone steals all your gear, you have lost everything. Monetary losses aside, that's like stealing your kids! I hope those jerks who stole it get busted.
     
  11. This is becoming more and more frequent.
