dinosaurjr_j_1996.gifAs someone mentioned in our comments, there's been yet another band gear caper.

After playing a show at Warsaw in Brooklyn last nite, Dinosaur Jr had their trailer broken into...J's Amma guitar, Mountain Man guitar, Lou's Rickenbacker, cymbals, pedals...everything gone.

Any info at all you can provide would be greatly appreciated, email: management@jmascis.com

Dinosaur Jr are in Amherst trying to patch together some gear for a show at Toads Place in Connecticut tonite, hopefully shows don't have to be cancelled.

Brooklyn Vegan has some more info (via J Mascis's site):

After a blisterning set last night in Brooklyn, NY the band awoke this morning to find that the their trailer had been broken into and all of the gear has been taken.

J's Amma guitar, the mountain man guitar, Lou's Rickenbacker... EVERYTHING IS GONE. They are still taking inventory to see what else is gone but they were pretty much wiped out.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!!! Spread the word to everyone you know, every music store, pawn shop, club... anywhere you can think they may show up.

If you have ANY information let us know -Thank you.
