IILS;YLS Gear Replacement Fund

On Sunday August 27th If I Look Strong; You Look Strong performed a successful concert at the Mill Creek Cafe. After retiring to our friend Clint's house near Whyte Ave we went to sleep. Upon waking around 10:30 AM Noah found the hatch popped open and nearly all of the gear missing.  Clint's neighbour ascertained that the van was locked at 7:00 AM when she went to work so the gear must have been stolen between 7:00 and 10:00 AM. The police have given me the run around, including 911 telling me to call non-emergency, non-emergency telling me to go in person, going in person being told to file it online, filing it online auto-rejecting, Calgary police saying they can't help, and finally Edmonton police calling me to explain why they can't help me instead of helping me.  I turn to you, the Canadian (and farther) Music Community, to entreat you to help me out and replace what was stolen. The band mates Dylan and Skyler also deserve to have what was stolen replaced.  The item/cost breakdown list is attached below. We asked for the value exactly in between New and Used, as some gear is hard to find used, but buying completely new isn't necessary either. If anyone can donate the exact item, that item's cost will be removed from the GoFundMe. Thank You Very Much Everyone!!! :) :) :)

 On October 5th Broken City had a benefit for us and we raised 167$! That is added to the total!
