Help us replace stolen van, equipment, merch

Hello all,

Last week, we attended our good friend's show in Detroit and walked out afterward to the entirely un-fun discovery that our van had disappeared from where it was parked. After making sure the city had not towed it, we deduced it had been hotwired and stolen. Inside the van were two of Jay's guitars, his amp, pedalboard, backpack full of songs/gear etc, instrument & amp cases, thousands of dollars in band merchandise, and lots of small, not-so-expensive but useful/sentimental items. We plan on staying busy with lots of shows this fall, including aiming at a two-week tour outside of the state in November. Thus, replacing our tour vehicle and everything inside of it is top priority for us at the moment. If you would like to help us get back on the road successfully, please consider donating and/or sharing our GoFundMe around on social media, with friends/family etc. Below is a comprehensive list of all that was stolen - if you're in the Detroit area, please keep an eye out for any of these items! As the cliche goes, every little bit helps. As always, thank you for your continued support - it truly means the world to us. Chirp, chirp y'all.
