In things that do not fly…

  • London riots
  • Stealing a band’s trailer and gear

I can’t remember the last time a riot solved ANYTHING. Do you?

Secondly, I was shocked to find out yesterday that after their set at Lollapalooza, someone had stolen Portugal. The Man’s van and trailer with all of their equipment inside. It is heartbreaking to hear that especially after they had played one of their best shows at the Chicago music festival. Since Monday, the band has been asking for the public’s help in retrieving their van back slash replacing their expensive gear. The van was discovered today, but sans equipment.

Among the pieces of equipment stolen were eight guitars, an electric organ, an electric piano, numerous musical pedals, drums speakers and microphones, an iPod and a banjo, according to a list of equipment released by the band. A cost estimate for the stolen items wasn’t immediately available, but the band noted the list was incomplete.

In its tweets, the band asked that anyone who is able to should print out the list of equipment and check local pawn shops; the group can be contacted at via Twitter via @portugaltheman if anyone knows anything about the theft.

If you can imagine…the time and money that goes into purchasing this equipment, it would take years – maybe even their whole musical career to acquire it all. I can only hope that their equipment will be returned to them safely, but I am disappointed in hearing this news.
