I love Chicago. I live here and love it.

The main problem and issue with Chicago is the south side, often where bands tend to play. Bottom Lounge / Reggies are great venues but in a pretty shitty area. It's unfortunate that these issues keep popping up for these bands.

Not all of Chicago is shit. All the murders and awful shit you hear on the news, 90% occurs on the south side. Just sticking up for my city here. :)

I don't know what NJ's van was last night, but it seems most band robberies take place in Wicker Park. This really sucks because that's where some of the best Chicago venues are.

South side is the best side.

Also, unrelated, I much prefer "burgled" to "burglarized." Missed opportunity is all I'm saying.

Well, if it was in Chicago, Julius Pepperwood will surely crack the case.

as someone who is born and raised in Chicago it is not that bad.

No one is placing any blame on the band. People forget that this is the 3rd largest city and assume that leaving laptops out in the open is fine.

Also this shows it can happen to even "bigger" bands, not just VFW sized bands. Sucks because there isn't much you can do considering how shady regions that surround venues can be and how the cost of security in the form of a guarded lot or otherwise can be too much for bands that barely break even to begin with.
Can you clue me into to what Veterans of Foreign Wars has to do with why band venues are referred to as VFW Halls? All I can find is long island music scene stuff.

I'm not sure if you're mixed up, or I've just missed something. I don't know of any venues being referred to as VFW Halls, aside from actual VFW Halls that smaller bands tend to frequent on tours. I had a band back in the day that did regional touring and would hit up VFW Halls for many dates of our tours. Think back to Get Up Kids lyrics for Eastern Standard Time.

Hope this helps. If not, I hope someone can help the both of us.

Where did they play?

I love Chicago and don't think this is a issue specific to there at all. It is unfortunate that bands' vans continue to get broken in to and its unfortunate no matter where it takes place.

Another one in Chicago.

Chicago is such a shitty city. The guys in Such Gold last night kept calling it Chi-raq.

Stop acting like a bitch. If you don't like where you live then fucking move. You are lucky to live in a place as nice as where we do.

Damn, what a bummer. Fuck Chi town.

BRB, grabbing one news story so that I can hyperbole it into a reason to hate your whole city too.

I live in the suburbs and I'm completely fine with where I live.
