UPDATE: They found their van.
Oregon folk punks Larry And His Flask were robbed of their van, trailer, and equipment last night while sleeping at a hotel in Cayce, S.C.
The Warped Tour veterans are currently on the road supporting Foxy Shazam, and, though they will be unable to perform tonight in Charlotte, N.C., they hope to complete the next three weeks of dates with fan assistance.
You can check out a picture of the stolen van, a statement from the band, and a list of stolen gear below.
"URGENT!! PLEASE READ!! Our van (Oregon license plate: 146 FRN, white 2010 Ford Econoline 350 w/tinted windows) and trailer (white 18’ double axel) were stolen from outside our hotel room last night in Cayce, South Carolina. We are stranded here in Cayce now and are figuring out how to proceed. Unfortunately we will have to miss the show tonight in Charlotte NC with Foxy Shazam but we want to carry on with the rest of this tour if at all possible. If anyone in the North Carolina or South Carolina area has a van we can borrow and return to you after this tour ends in Ohio on June 28th, we would be more grateful than you can possibly imagine.
And if anyone wants to DONATE any money in any amount towards helping us buy a van/trailer, you can do so via PayPal at email@example.com. Needless to say, we are deeply and humbly grateful for any help in any manner than anyone out there can provide. Thank you all so much for always supporting The Flask…we hope and pray we can get through this horrible situation and carry on.
If any friends or fans or other kind souls can possibly let us BORROW any gear (ESPECIALLY a banjo, an upright bass and a trombone) in each city for the rest of the tour, we would be incredibly grateful…this is the only way we can continue on this tour and we want to carry on for sure. If you can help in any way, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can see our upcoming shows with Foxy listed under the “EVENTS” tab here on our Facebook page, under our main photo.
