Wednesday in San Francisco Maria Taylor's (saddle creek records) van was broken into.
Maria and the band are pretty devastated as the culprits got away with 6 guitars, 2 suitcases, pedals, and plenty of merch.
We're hoping some of these items may turn up online or in local San Francisco pawn shops. As you can imagine, this gear has lots of sentimental value as well.
Please take a look at this list and keep your eyes open! If you have any information or are ready and willing to help us keep watch on ebay, craigslist, etc send us a message!
Thanks so much for your support.

I don't actually listen to 'Finch'
I don't think i have ever freaked someone out as much as I did her when I met her in Athens, GA last year.
Nice lady, though. I'm sorry this had to happen to her. Enter obligatory "I'm sure Conor will comfort her" joke here.

Bands really need to take care of their shit. Guess what, people of low moral fiber know that a van and a trailer usually means lots of expensive gadgets. There are steps that can be taken to protect your stuff and they are well worth it considering the risk you take without them. When you stay in a hotel, have someone sleep in the van. When you are gonna be away from your van for an extended period of time, put your laptops/ipods/gps in the trailer or bring them with you. A window is very easy to break and alarms are virtually worhtless nowadays. Get a tirelock for your trailer, buy those badass master locks that can only be taken off with a circular saw.
Getting your shit jacked sucks, but leaving it in the van where all someone has to do is break a window to get in is not taking care of it.

Man what a bummer, I wish I had the means to replace all your gear. It must be terrible to be out there trying to change the world, and then having to navigate bumps in the road like this. Keep your head high! What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, eh?
