Driver Friendly's trailer was stolen this weekend at SXSW. They've released a statement which you can read in the replies. This marks the second time in six weeks that the band has been robbed. They've set up a donation page where you can take a look at what was stolen and pick up some merchandise.

Driver Friendly had their cameras and laptops stolen last night. Head over to their store and pick something up if you want to help out.

Edit: The band has released a statement:
Hey guys, thanks for the support. As you may have heard our van was broken into outside of the venue Tricky Falls in El Paso, TX last night. Fortunately, none of musical gear was touched but we did lose some personal belongings. The cameras stolen were the ones we used to make all of our music videos and videos for other bands like The Wonder Years. If anyone has information about the following equipment hit us up at driverfband@gmail.com. Thanks again for all the love,

According to three or four news submitters, Kevin Devine and the Goddamn Band had their car broken into in Washington DC over the weekend. I haven't seen any mention of this on Twitter or Facebook though, has anyone heard anything or found a way to donate some money to the band?

This is the kind of news I hate posting about. Some asshole in Detroit tonight decided to break into Touché Amoré's van and steal all the band member's personal belongings and cash. If we hear of any way for you to donate money or help to the band, we'll let you know. You can always pick up the band's upcoming new record and merch. In the meantime, whomever broke into the band's van is honestly a piece of shit and lower than scum.

In 1999, Sonic Youth's tour bus was stolen, and the band lost all of their gear, much of it highly modified and irreplaceable. This week, however, two of the guitars that were stolen have shown up and been returned to the band.

Matt’s plaid black and white Hurley backpack, Elliott’s plain blac backpack and Dreds black Under Armor backpack. Contents were brand new MacBooks, iPods, a passport and the flipcam.
