Published May 12, 2008Buck 65 is minus $5,000 worth of gear after a thief got sticky fingers at a recent Victoria gig Thursday night (May 8). According to the CBC, the Nova Scotia-born MC was in the midst of laying down rhymes to a sold-out crowd when his manager noticed the theft.
The ballsy thief apparently had entered the soundstage area at Alix Goolden Hall, where he or she proceeded to make off with the thousands of dollars worth of audio and recording equipment. Among the items stolen was also 40 hours of video footage Buck 65 had been recording over the last three weeks for a future DVD release.
Victoria police are now investigating, but have yet to announce any suspects. Buck 65 is appealing to whoever is behind robbery to return the goods, no questions asked. The theft follows a similar incident involving micro-house extraordinaire Matthew Dear, who last month had his hard drive stolen while DJing in Brooklyn. At least in Buck 65s case, the robbery didnt stop the show dead in its tracks.
