Theft at Starline! Rademacher instruments stolen. Mar. 7th, 2007 @ 02:36 pm
I'm posting this in hopes that maybe one of you might happen upon a pawn shop...or a shady dude that has our instruments.

Last night (Tuesday, March 6th) at Starline in the Tower District, someone stole my guitar and case, greer's bass and case, and our Korg Electribe keyboard/synth.

We had our gear stashed in the back hallway as per usual...and right before we were about to take the stage, we noticed that half our gear was gone!

Sucky in and of itself, right? right. Add to the fact that we leave for tour in 3 days, and you've got yourself a gigantic crap sandwhich. We've been eating this sandwhich since yesterday, and it just keeps on tasting worse.

Here are the descriptions of the gear:

1 Les Paul Epiphone guitar. Black body with no pick guard.

1 Gibson Case fit for an Epiphone (hard case)

1 Chromatic Tuner made by Boss

1 Fender Squire Precision Bass. Blue body with cracked white pick guard.

1 Fender Bass case (hard case)

1 Korg Electribe (ESX1 i think?) red/white with a tube window.

I know the odds aren't great that these will be found...but man.

We're still going to hit the road...somehow some way...so please come out to our fundraiser Friday at Tokyo Garden...we need your support doubly so now.

Here's the flyer for that show:

Thanks everyone.

Your happiness is being bought. Steal it. Feb. 28th, 2007 @ 01:38 pm

We were totally thinking about this the other day. You know at most clubs when 2am is rolling around and the DJ announces that he's about to play the last song of the night? And then he says goodbye and thanks for coming, and the last song ends up being something totally nuts that everyone loves and it totally just gets you out on the dancefloor for one last gasp? It's usually something the DJ would otherwise be too chicken to play, or doesn't think would be appreciated, but since it's the last song, all bets are off and he thinks, oh, what the hell?

That last song? That's us all night. Don't matter if it's 10. Don't matter if it's 2. Chances are, if you're not shaking it to what we're playing already, just wait. The next song is totally your jam.

We love you forever,
-- Meatball Magic
