Dinosaur Jr Gear Stolen (Long Island City, NY)

After a blistering 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.

The band is driving to Amherst to see if they can get enough gear together to play the scheduled show @ Toads in New Haven, CT but it may have to be cancelled.
