While immersed in CMJ nonsense, I almost missed an email alerting me to yet another Philly gear theft. This time the band is Ireland's La Rocca who recently toured with Phoenix, and whose new record is out on dangerbird (home of Silversun Pickups).

If anyone in the Philly area sees or gets offered anything suspicious that they think might once have been ours.. a lot of our stuff has LAROCCA stencilled on it.... let us know.

We'll keep you posted.

If you see ANY of the following instruments - or the van itself - please contact us ASAP. Thanks. Stolen in Philadelphia today (November 6, 2006)
