Giant has joined that exclusive club, the one with Dinosaur Jr., Matthew Dear, The Concretes, The Raveonettes, and many many others ….. bands that have been robbed in (or near) NYC.

From Lambgoat:

“During our set in Brooklyn tonight our van window was smashed in and our bags, laptops, MP3 players, headphones, and various personal items, not to mention our money box, with the majority of money we have as a band, was taken.”

Giant was in town playing the mega-super-ridiculous show with Tombs, Engineer, and Rosetta. The boys ended with this hopeful nugget:

“I only say this to give an update as to our time on the road, and formally thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for all of the help given to us. the people at the show in Brooklyn, Engineer, Tombs, Rosetta, words simply can not express how thankful we are. oddly enough, in the end, it may have been the most heartening experience any of this have had with this band. so, thank you Brooklyn.”

“We will not be setting up a Paypal account or any of that mess. Just come to the shows and say ‘hello!'”

Giant are at work on their new album Telomeres.
