According to a police report, the thief likely climbed up the two-story building's fire escape near Union Avenue after 3 am.That sucks! Beware of any suspcious tweets and/or emails.
After entering Jelly's second-floor office's unlocked door, the thief grabbed three computers: a Macbook Pro, a laptop used by Jelly promoters, and an employee's personal computer.
Jelly co-founder Alexander Kane lamented the loss of his work computer, calling its content "irreplaceable."
The shows will go on though. This weekend Jelly hosts two more parties. The first is the second edition of Rock Yard on Saturday (lineup at the link). The second is Sunday's Pool Party which this week is a "Block Party" and is scheduled to take place at/outside Brooklyn Bowl instead of Williamsburg Waterfront. The Sunday "block party" still has no announced lineup though (but Siren co-headliner Ted Leo is a rumor).
This weekend's Block Party is one of two upcoming "block parties" that Jelly has planned for us this summer. The next one will take place at South Street Seaport in NYC (and in three other states as well).
