You Blew It! Robbed in Texas
2014-07-30 by River Tam | 24 Comments
You Blew It! have announced that their van was broken into and robbed yesterday during a stop at a Guitar Center in San Antonio, Texas. The following list of the stolen items was posted on their Facebook page, as well as some pictures of them:
- Rickenbacker 4003 bass
- Reverend Charger 290 guitar
- Pedaltrain Pedalboard (pedals, too)
- Sunn Coliseum head
- Traynor YBA-1 head (baffle missing)
- iPads
- iPods
- GPS
- Passports
- Luggage
To help recover from the robbery, the band is accepting donations through Paypal (youblewitfl@gmail.com). They have also been given a special deal from MerchNOW, where all proceeds from their shirt sales will go directly to the band (www.merchnow.com/catalogs/you-blew-it). Their label Top Shelf Records is giving them a similar deal with all of their album sales from the label's Bandcamp site (topshelfrecords.bandcamp.com/album/keep-doing-what-youre-doing). The label will also be selling some rare items in the coming days.

Burgled not burglarized.
But technically it's just been broken into.
You had the opportunity not to look an arse, but you blew it!

I'm more surprised that I haven't seen the follow up comment: "Grow up, dude"

I find it tragically ironic that they had their guitars (among other things) stolen while stopped at a Guitar Center. Otherwise, huge bummer.

it would have been kind of funny if their stuff got stolen and the thief just went right into the guitar center and tried to sell it while they were in there

but really this sucks no band deserve it
