Who the hell is stealing all these bands’ vans and trailers?

Man, it bums me out to write these stories.  Yet another band has had ALL of their gear stolen right out from under their noses. South Florida punk act Protagonist are the latest victims of what seems to be a steadily growing crime in the US and Canada. The band had their trailer stolen from a Denny’s parking lot in Tulsa, Oklahoma yesterday.  The trailer contained over $22,000 worth of gear and the band is humbly accepting any donations to help them get back on their feet. Here is a direct link to their paypal. You can read the whole story from the band here.

Protagonist was on their way to record their new EP with Stephen Egerton which they were planning or releasing this Fall.  Not sure what this means for the release or the scheduled June tour.

    This is balls, especially considering how little money bands really make. However, the thieves must know their on a good wicket.

    I once had a Gretsch stolen from backstage after a show. I didn’t leave the house for a week, can’t imagine how these guys are feeling.
