So Evolve was short one wicked performer this past weekend, when THAT ONE GUY had his instument and other gear stolen out of his car while stopping over in Montreal PQ.

This instument was homemade, and very hard to reproduce. It is his livleyhood, and I feel so terrible for him to have it taken. Here is a list I found of the stuff that was taken. Man this sucks.

Is there just one band of thieves following around touring acts right now and grabbing their gear?

who in the hell even plots this shit? I can't even imagine sitting around, talking to my thief buddies and saying "hey, there's this guy coming to play at this festival and we should steal all his shit and get rich".

Manhole covers are going missing in record #'s here in Ottawa with a street value of $50. Maybe they stole it for the raw materials?

I think if you are a touring band, you had better learn to cover the shit in your vehicle with a heavy blanket and not let them know what is inside. I saw a van for Hey Ocean when they were here in Ottawa, and all of the gear was easy to see from streetside- not a good idea!

Getting insurance on your gear (which I think most musicians' unions can provide) is also a good idea, as is taking pictures and recording the make/model/serial # of each piece of gear.

Aloha,

Our van was broken into last time we were in Montreal... out behind le Cabaret.

Our guitar tech Steve and I were walking back to our hotel where we saw that our van had not been moved from the area it was parked earlier as recommended by the promoter due to break ins in the area. We both agreed it was kind of silly, and Steve even noted that his laptop was still in the van too.

So in the time it took for him to walk into the hotel, up to the second floor, get keys, and come back down.... someone smashed the window behind the driver's seat and made off with his computer. What a pisser!!!

Montreal is sooooo bad for break ins to vehicles. BNB has been broken into there before, as has just about every other musician I talk to. Robert Plant even had his entire merchandise truck stolen there a few years ago!!!

Poor that one guy. I'd imagine he has a backup, seeming as he only has that one instrument.
