Memoryhouse gear stolen on tour with Washed Out; NY shows still on & they added a RSD in-store @ Permanent Records
Memoryhouse (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Despite a recent, horrible gear theft (list below) which caused the cancellation of last night (Philadelphia) and tonight's (Boston) shows for Memoryhouse, the band are continuing on their tour with Washed Out and they've even added a third NYC show! In addition to their sold out shows with Washed Out at both Highline Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg, and their own show Saturday night at Public Assembly with Ex Cops, Memoryhouse will play a free afternoon in-store at Permanent Records in Williamsburg on Saturday too. P-recs says:
The big day is upon us. Record Store Day is this Saturday, April 21st.
We are opening at 11am. We will have countless exclusive & limited edition releases to commemorate the occasion. We will have special giveaways throughout the day. We will have treats for our earliest customers. We will have live performances from Mattison at 1pm & 5pm. We also have Sub Pop's Memoryhouse coming in at 3pm for a special acoustic performance.
A few more notes to remember going into this special occasion:
-We have gone to great lengths to make sure we have stock on as many RSD exclusive titles as possible. However, due to the highly limited nature of some of these releases, quantities are often extremely limited. Many titles sell out instantly, so arrive early to avoid disappointment.
-*We are doing absolutely NO holds or special orders for any RSD exclusive titles.* They are sold on a first come, first served basis.
-We generally don't receive our RSD product until VERY shortly before the big day, so please don't call asking what we will have in stock. We are not holding out on you! We are trying to get as much as possible, but like you, we generally don't know specifics in advance.
It's gonna be a great day. Can't wait to see you all then.

MESSAGE FROM MEMORYHOUSE:
There's no good way of saying that we have had some unfortunate luck. Last night our van was broken into just outside of Washington, DC and most of our equipment has been stolen. To our dismay, we have no choice but to drop out of the upcoming Philadelphia and Boston shows with Washed Out. We are asking for donations to help buy/rent equipment so we can get back on our feet for New York and continue on the rest of the tour. We hate to ask but we suffered a huge loss and anything would really help. Thanks to everyone for your support and I hope to see you all very soon.
