for any one in a touring band insure your gear. https://www.musicproinsurance.com/default.aspx

$20,000 of coverage is less then $400 a year.

Phosphorescent bro was getting beej in the Pencil Factory bathroom while his shit got ripped off. I've got proof.

Wow. Never heard of someone so proud about their jizz-stained teeth.

@ 1:09 I'd like to think there are reasonable insurance choices - though I'd want to be sure there wasn't some kind of "vehicle exclusion clause".

Sorry to hear that the band is dealing with having this total stress and loss.

Dottie: Pee-wee, how are you ever going to pay a reward like that?
Pee-wee: It's simple. Whoever returns the bike is obviously the person who stole it. So they don't deserve any reward!

Who the hell leaves 40k worth of equipment in a van overnight. I literally walk back to my car if I think I may have left a quarter or a pack of smokes out in the open. Not surprised at all.

"I'd like to think there are reasonable insurance choices - though I'd want to be sure there wasn't some kind of "vehicle exclusion clause"."

Is there a vehicle exclusion clause in that insurance website's policy? I'm thinking of getting insurance through them but don't want to go through with it if that's the case.

1:09 can't answer your question. He just wants to be a dick and blame the band anonymousely in these comments for not having insurance.

Really, you little guppie jackasses are going to start up again saying it was the bands' fault?

Brooklyn Vegan commenters have an incredible ability to make me want to reach into the monitor and slap the shit out of them.

I only wish there was a day where we all knew what some of you looked like at shows. Or your real names suddenly became attached to your past comments.

Good luck to the band.

@7:52 PM my comment above putting "vehicle exclusion clause" in quotes was my way of saying insurance companies have a way of finding fine-print excuses to decline coverage and was my shorthand consumer advise to "read the fine print".

Yes, this does not help what is in the past and I feel badly that the band had this gear theft happen.

Thanks for the clarification - if anything, this theft has made me that much more aware of insuring my equipment!

I believe there was a line for the Pencil Factory BJ's.

Clarion also specializes is musical instrument insurance. It costs me about $230 a year for $27k worth of equipment.
