Street Dogs ask for fan help recovering gear from British Airways

Street Dogs guitarist Tobe Bean posted a status to the band’s Facebook page this morning, asking for fan help to recover lost gear. Apparently several instruments were lost on British Airways, and they have not had any success getting assistance from the airline, so they’re asking for fans to draw some attention and hopefully get their gear back. Check out the status:

A week ago @British_Airways lost 2 Gibson Les Pauls, 2 1970’s Fender Basses, and a set of Zildjian cymbals. At this point @British_Airways have made no attempt to get these back to us. Also mind you we spent $600 in bag fees for this kind of service. Words can’t express the impact that this takes on a band to not have your necessary tools of your trade. We are calling on all of you to retweet and repost this story wherever you can to hopefully get their attention and get our gear back. Thanks for all support you guys are truly the greatest fans in the world.

The band also posted this to Twitter if you want to help out by re-tweeting it. Good luck, dudes.

Rise Against and Street Dogs playing free rally show for recall election in Madison, Wisconsin

Tim McIlrath of Rise Against, Mike McColgan of Street Dogs, along with guitarist Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine,and singer-songwriter Jackson Browne are all hitting the stage in Madison to turn out the vote in a Wisconsin recall election that’s too close to call.

The “Get Out The Vote’ Rally, sponsored by We Are Wisconsin, will provide a massive boost to canvassing efforts days before the recall election on June 5. The event, which will be held at the Madison Labor Temple at 1602 S. Park St., is free to the public with a sign up to volunteer to help get out the vote. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

McIlrath says his fans often ask how they can get involved with issues of change and awareness. “The frontline happens to be in Wisconsin at the moment, and I’m excited to be out there to help turn out the vote with everyone,” he added.

Three different polls released in the past week have shown a dead heat with challenger Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett having clear momentum and a superior field operation. Both sides have consistently said the election will come down to whom has the better ground game and turns out its base.

“Wisconsin has the lowest amount of new jobs being created out of all American states and a high unemployment rate,” said McColgan. “Certainly with that in mind Wisconsin needs a change and a break from a governor who is beholden to corporate interests and the American Legislative Exchange Council.”

Photo Gallery : Street Dogs at Slim’s. San Francisco, California. March 16, 2012

The weekend of St. Patrick’s Day, Boston-based Street Dogs performed at the legendary Slim’s in San Francisco.

Issues at the door kept me from seeing the openers Murder The Stout kick off the night, but I was inside to catch a fair amount of Old Man Markley‘s set. I have seen this band several times and they always have a great stage presence and vibe.

Devils Brigade followed, and got the crowd ready for the always-rowdy Street Dogs. The band is celebrating their 10th year of being together, and show no signs of stopping.
