Memoryhouse stolen gear

This sucks to read about as I recall at least two other incidents involving bands I know where this happened. 1 being Kaddisfly, the other, I believe Men, Women and Children.

I remember when this happened to Kaddisfly, it was almost surprising how they didn't feel extreme anger for those who did this to them, but instead, pity and sadness, that people are that desparate, they go to these lengths just for what? food, liquor or even drugs? Who knows, but it is more SAD than ANGER that is pathetic to read about when this happens.

Hopefully with a little time, Memoryhouse will get back on their feet and move past this unfortunate incident. But in the short-term, I and hopefully enough others can help them out, even in any small way (even if it's just a little, every little amount counts, even towards $4000-$5000 worth of equipment)

edit: interesting link about insurance for music equipment

There’s no good way of saying that we have had some unfortunate luck. Last night our van was broken into just outside of Washington, DC and most of our equipment has been stolen. To our dismay, we have no choice but to drop out of the upcoming Philadelphia and Boston shows with Washed Out. We are asking for donations to help buy/rent equipment so we can get back on our feet for New York and continue on the rest of the tour. We hate to ask but we suffered a huge loss and anything would really help. Thanks to everyone for your support and I hope to see you all very soon.

Donate here and help spread the word.
