So much expensive gear and no Security system?

Posted by Anonymous | July 19, 2011 7:07 PM

this gear is not "expensive" at all – it sucks that it was stolen but none of it is irreplaceable.

7:00 is the fakest one in the house!

People unloading equipment from a building is hardly suspicious.

Deebo came around, made Smokey hop through the window and take all of yo stuff.

You sometimes see stolen audio gear like this come up at shady stores or flea markets etc. It's not impossible that someone would find it again.

My Chicago-based friend got a bunch of audio equipment stolen out of the back of her car, only to find it all being sold the next weekend at Maxwell Street Market. She got it all back, didn't even have to yell too much... it was obvious it was hers, and stolen.

In the meantime -- please start a kickstarter fund. I will donate. <3

It is amazing that no one was there or neighbors to see this major theft because as said it must have taken a while. Its still disgusting thats for sure.

Posted by Anonymous | July 19, 2011 10:48 PM

Dude, people unloading shit out of a building whatever time of night is NOT UNCOMMON in NYC. I am sure people saw it happen, and I am sure people thought nothing of it. And they were wrong. But still, people taking shit out of buildings is not a weird sight!

Posted by Anonymous | July 19, 2011 11:26 PM

take up a collection. you could probably replace this stuff for $3k.

Posted by Anonymous | July 19, 2011 11:34 PM

Uhhhh why are people getting upset at comments in a forum that's notorious for doing it so ironically? Negative comments as jokes is why I read these comments... that and hummus. And yes I'm speaking to you @7:00. Why you so stoopid?

To prove my point look at the comments here then follow the link to a story of a dead body at McCarren Park. Yeah, talk about insensitive @7:00 unlike stuff that was a person and the comments are awesome.

wow... what a horrible disturbing thread.

Posted by Anonymous | July 20, 2011 8:46 AM

so that's like what, 200-250 dollars worth of stuff?

Posted by Anonymous | July 20, 2011 9:28 AM

@9:28 nah the QSC K8 speakers are about a grand by themselves.
you could maybe replace the Ampeg bass amp for 250. Lemmie know when you or anyone who taught you how money works has a stoop sale.

My balls are 2 for the price of 1 homeboy.

Well, we should have no problem outfitting the space with even better equipment given how many BV readers there are that make +$130k. Come on you successful people, show us what you got. Unless you are all full of shit ... you wouldn't be full of shit now, would you?

Posted by Anonymous | July 20, 2011 9:55 AM

So they estimated their loss of monetary value was $15k, yet their Kickstarter is to raise $40k (and ideally $80k)? That's a bit odd...

Posted by Anonymous | July 20, 2011 9:56 AM

@9:56 it's less odd if you actually read the whole thing.

Posted by Anonymous | July 20, 2011 10:06 AM

as long as the braun cruZer is safe.

its a-ok!

Posted by Anonymous | July 20, 2011 10:14 AM

Yeah but it would have to be a bunch of people who knew no one was at the place, knew no one would BE at the place for a while, etc. and people know silent barn is right there... Nobody saw a bunch of Non Silent Barn people unloading ALL of Silent Barn's gear? Without anyone being there to see it? a group of people must have been casing them for WEEKS. OR they paid off other pissed off neighbors to look the other way.

I'm not saying they were not ripped off, just something about this stinks.

Well, at least now the thieves know how much to ask for the booty on Craig's List.

The night of the alleged incident I saw 4 guys load stuff into their shitwagon. one had dreads, 2 were wearing doo-rags, and another guy looked like he had no pants on, just boxers.

Posted by Anonymous | July 20, 2011 12:30 PM

^^ nah, check that, he was white and had an Animal Collective t-shirt on

James Murphy has it. He's gonna let Dave P use it to DJ a shit gay orgy he's throwing in Williamsburg with all the faggots with bad tattoos.

Posted by Anonymous | July 20, 2011 2:04 PM

when they get the new equipment they should keep attack dogs on premises when they are not there.

Posted by Anonymous | July 20, 2011 2:06 PM

Another decent security measure is to build a moat of flesh eating piranhas surrounding the building

@2:06 IM SURE THAT WILL GO OVER WELL WITH MAMA
