That sucks. But unless they are counting the van and the trailer that seems pretty steep.

Seems to be happening around the city a lot lately. Its probably the same crew. Sucks to hear for any bands this happens to.

It wasn't just music gear either, my friend Chris Newhard who's a director (videographer of Time Will Tell, Palisades, Train) was touring with them, and got Mac Book Pro's + multiple hard drives stolen...sucks :/

It's insane. Anytime you hear of a band getting robbed, 95% of the time its in Chicago

Apparently their show was in Darien, a suburb a little ways away from Chicago. Not Chicago.
