Published Apr 20, 2012In a story that's become all too common in recent years, Memoryhouse are the latest touring band to have their equipment stolen while out on tour.
The Ontario dream pop duo and their backing players were in Oxon Hill, MD (a suburb of Washington, DC), when their van was broken into. This resulted in them pulling out of last night's show (April 19) in Philadelphia, where they were scheduled to play with Washed Out. They will also miss tonight's gig in Boston, but they hope to play tomorrow (April 21) in New York.
"There's no good way of saying that we have had some unfortunate luck," wrote singer Denise Nouvion in a message posted on the band's website. "We are asking for donations to help buy/rent equipment so we can get back on our feet for New York [April 21 to 23] and continue on the rest of the tour. We hate to ask but we suffered a huge loss and anything would really help."
The band also posted the list of stolen gear, so be sure to give them a heads-up if you see any of the equipment. Go here to read the list, which includes everything from laptops, to guitar pedals, to a MIDI controller, sampler, projector, cymbals and more. Also, via the band's website, you'll find a link to make a donation to help the band get back on their feet.
