    Hey, this San Francisco band is on tour and someone stole ALL their gear in Philadelphia! That is so lame!!! Please repost to help them track it down and contact http://www.myspace.com/filmschool with any info.


    To recap, our van was stolen this morning around 8am from the Comfort Inn on Delaware Ave in Philadelphia. It was a white, 2003 Ford E-350, California license plates. ALL of our gear was taken. Here's a list of what's missing:

    - 1966 Ludwig drum kit, blue sparkle
    - 23" Paiste ride cymbal
    - 1976 Fender P-bass, no finish, beat down, Bartolini pick-up
    - 1993 Gibson SG, black
    - 1973 Fender Telecaster Deluxe, cream, with marble pickguard, humbuckers
    - Fender Twin Reverb amp, 70's silverface, master volume
    - Fender Deville guitar amp
    - early 70's Ampeg SVT bass head with 2 massive metal handles on the sides
    - Ampeg SVT 410HLF bass cabinet
    - Peavey keyboard amp
    - 3 boxes of effects: 2 Line 6 delay pedals, Memory Man Deluxe, Big Muff, SansAmp Bass DI, Rat, MXR distortion, Cry Baby wah, 2 Boss EQ pedals, Boss Digital Delay, 2 Boss Tuners. These were in 3 different suitcases.
    - Kurzweil K2000 keyboard
    - Boss Dr. Sample

    If anyone in the Philadelphia area has any info where this stuff might surface we'd really appreciate it. Or, if you find our van or our gear we can pay you handsome reward. Seriously.

    BAD NEWS! I'll keep an eye out down here. You may want to call some places that specialise in buying and selling of used gear in and around Phili. If they come down here (Maryland), the big places are:

    Atomic Music in College Park, MD
    Dave's Deals in Baltimore, MD
    Music-Go-Round (multiple locations around Baltimore)

    You may want to give these places a heads up and search for more North of here. I'd put a gear list together, call these kinds of places and fax em the list (or email). GOOD LUCK!
