Califone’s Gear Stolen

Califone’s instruments stolen in San Francisco. Help them find their gear!

Message from Tim Rutilli:

hi people, we had some trouble in san francisco yesterday. our van got broken into and we had some instruments stolen. if anybody is out in the bay area and visits pawn shops, looks at e-bay or knows anyone who fences stolen goods. if you spot any of these items please contact us here or call the perishable office at 312 225 8440.

any suggestions or clues will be greatly appreciated. this stuff is irreplaceable. it hurts to lose it and it is going to be very difficult to play these next few shows with out it…anyway.

thanks and thanks for coming out to the shows. we’ve had a very nice time playing music and visiting our beautiful sweet friends these past few months.
