Gear from Listener stolen in the UK

Last night in Birmingham England while we were playing our set someone got in to our dressing room backstage and robbed us. We are safe, and are headed to ArcTanGent fest to play today. The club has CCTV cameras and we were able to see the person after the fact, and the police are involved, but nevertheless we got robbed.

The theif took a backpack containing a passport, MacBook Pro, wallet, iPhone, and clothes, as well as grabbing another iPhone on their way out the door.

We have been on the road for 3 months, as of yesterday, and needless to say this is a blow to the mind as nothing like this has happened to us before, and we only have one more week of shows to go.

We also may have to cancel our two shows in Ireland as we sort out getting a replacement passport over the weekend. So not only are we out phones and a laptop and a passport, but income from these shows, travel to London and back for a new passport, ferry costs, and lodging for us while we sort it all out.

We don't like asking, but if you don't ask then no one can help. So, if you feel like helping some strangers or some artists who have been hard at work for the last three months and far beyond that, then we will welcome it here. Thanks.

laptop: $1600
phones: $1400
passport & clothes: $500 (travel, documents)
missed shows, lodging and ferry costs: $extra.
