Phosphorescent @ Pier 54 (more by Chris La Putt)

Phosphorescent sent out a thank you/update message today about the theft. Check it out below...


Waking up Friday morning
To find that the tools for your trade
Everything you'd pieced together and worked for
And collected for over a decade (!)
Was gone
Just like that
Was one hell of a feeling

Anger, disgust, sadness
Etc etc etc...
I think
There's no need
To elaborate on this part

But here's the part
That does need
Some elaboration:

Thank You

So many people,
Friends and strangers
Have stepped forward
So quickly and with such generosity
It has transformed this thing
Into a truly amazing and heartwarming
Affirmation of community and love and spirit;
Good vibes and support arriving from far and near
And I want to express how humbled and
Tremendously appreciative
We all are

We had to reschedule
The first two shows;
Toronto, Buffalo,
We were really looking forward to getting up there
and we will get back up there as soon possible

But the rest of the shows are on!

We are re-grouped
And re-saddled
And ready to ride

Want to give a big shout out to
Tom and Garrett and everybody down at Main Drag Music
And Chris Taylor from Grizzly Bear
And Eben Bull and Mike Bones from Sian Alice Group
For loaning, fixing, and building (!) amps and guitars for us to use
And I cannot say thankyou enough
To everyone who sent donations and well-wishes
Your kindness and open-hearted support
Has re-awakened in me
That sense of community and spirit
That can get clouded and covered
When, from time to time
On this cruise
You may find yourself
A little jaded and weary

Columbus Ohio,
And all points forward -
We're on our way

We'll be seen yall soon
We can't wait to see you all out there
And thank you in person

Or to quote that awesome guy
from the mountains on the internet;

Double rainbow!
All the way across the sky
It's a Double.
