Just got this email from musician Jana Hunter's publicist. Jana performed at Solar Culture Friday night.
Friday night Jana Hunter and touring mates The Castanets had much of their equipment stolen in Tucson. It's hoped that you'll run this story and help bring attention to their plight and that musicians and store owners and folks shopping on eBay will be alerted and report in if they note any of the stolen goods turning up.
"So, the story is, last night we played in tucson at solar culture. Afterward, we loaded our stuff up, went downtown, had a drink, and went to a house to crash on the floor. en route, we damaged a door, making it such that the door won't close and such that eventually, before we return the vehicle to the rental company, we'll have to pay on the order of 2 grand to replace the door.
"Seeing as how we had an unsecured vehicle, ray (castanets) slept in the van. sometime during the night, some brave fug(s) very quietly opened the back door and took what they could carry. we assume their were more than one of them given all the stuff they managed to walk away with.
All this after we had to fly our friend/drummer to the airport yesterday morning so he could go to the hospital. pretty big bummer all around."- Jana Hunter
