OUR TRAILER HAS BEEN STOLEN!!!

OUR TRAILER HAS BEEN STOLEN!!!

Postby mozzer on Thu Mar 17, 2005 2:12 pm

Hello All,

At some time between 3 a.m. and 8 a.m., the band's gear trailer was stolen from outside a house in SE Portland, near the Aladdin Theatre. Heartbreakingly, it housed practically every piece of instrumentation belonging to the Decemberists.

So this is a sort of call to arms; I figure if we get the word out, maybe we all can collectively track it down.

The trailer in question is a WHITE 6' x 12' WELLS CARGO trailer. There's a green 'VT' (as in Vermont) sticker on the side door, among other smaller stickers, a BRITISH FLAG sticker on the front, and a 'NO ON 36' sticker on the left back door. The license number is U34 8717 (Oregon).

Any information you might have on this, please report to the Portland Police. If you do see it, by all means call 911.


Best,

Colin.

Agh that is terrible. I think they need to organize the Portland Street Team into a spy force.... good luck finding everything!

I remember something similar happened to Xiu Xiu recently (or not so recently, I forget.)

Definitely nothing fun indeed. Although in PA, I'll keep my eyes peeeeeeled like a banana.

I know everyone's got more important things to worry about, but, I'm supposed to fly in from Edmonton to see the Vancouver show. Apparently the venue has informed all places that the show is cancelled, but, I'm still not 100% sure if I should cancel my flight yet or not. :S

There are some terrible, evil, meanspirited people out there. I'm so sorry about this, guys, and I hope you can recover your van at the very least. (Not to mention your gear.)

The people who did this ought to be drawn and quartered. As for shows being cancelled, I have to admit to being a bit dissapointed, but I think all in all it's most important that you get yourselves back together. This isn't about the fans right now, its about you guys, and the terrible crime which has been commited. We can handle having our shows postponed, you just worry about taking care of yourselves for the time being.

Curse the thieves, curse them, curse them! Being in the south of England I can't be much use in tracking it down, but if it turns up in Sussex, I'll say something about it ... meanwhile, good luck, I know how awful it is to lose instruments :cry:
