This just in from Camper Van Beethoven’s management:

Thank you for supporting the artists of Vanguard Records. We specifically write you beause you live in the TexArkAna region. We thank you for your time in reading the following:

Camper Van Beethoven’s gear has (once again) been stolen. This time, from their hotel in Dallas. Below is a listing from David Lowery of the items taken. The band wants to continue its tour and in-store shows, so any and all help you can provide will be instrumental.

For those in the Texas/Oklahoma area, please print out the listing of equipment so shopowners can keep an eye out. If you have gear similar to what was taken and can let the guys borrow it, that would be terrific too. Please feel free to contact us at ayappa@vanguardrecords.com if you are able to help in that capacity.
