This is like the third article I've seen this year of bands getting robbed on tour. Man, that really blows. I'd give them money, but I can't afford to give up a cent right now.

People realized that the van outside of the venue on the night of a show probably has guitars and drums and amps and shit in it.

you'd think bands would be stepping up their security measures after all of this shit happening lately..

or better yet, maybe the venue should have security out back >.>

It's so funny whose calling out NOLA. The robbery went down in a Denny's parking lot in freaking
Metairie, LA. Not some ghetto area of the city, a freaking suburb. Not even the city of New Orleans.


Look I love this band, I even booked/promoted their show in New Orleans.

But grow some common sense, and don't leave $10,000 in your van in the corner of a Denny's parking
lot.

Also, this city is the home of sludge metal (Eyehategod, Crowbar, Thou) and jazz and funk.

Generally, the state of Louisiana sucks as a whole...but New Orleans itself freaking rules! If you beg to differ, then you obviously haven't visited this wonderful city. I don't even get why a band would travel to the suburbs to eat, when they could eat a wonderful meal in New Orleans.

Urban def of Metairie, LA:
Soulless suburb of New Orleans where most things seem plastic, unreal, or 'anytown, USA'

Shit, reminds me of what happened to Cursed. Just without the break up and all (I fucking hope at least.)

I wasnt calling out NOLA necessarily. I said New Orleans, because i highly doubt many people here know where the hell Metarie is. I live in the area, but tours intentionally avoid the south for one reason or another. When other bands hear "Oh, so and so was robbed there" they may avoid going there, thus hurting our reputation even more.

I do agree that NOLA is the only good thing about this shit hole state.

more curiously why does this happen to mostly hardcore bands? why isn't anyone ripping off folk-indie artists?

That's just depressing. Nobody deserves to experience this. From what I've heard, this band puts on a killer show. Hope everything goes well in the long run, here's $5 from me to you.
