Two touring bands had their van broken into and roughly $7,500 in musical gear stolen after playing shows in Boston.
Philadelphia’s Kississippi and Albany’s Prince Daddy & The Hyena posted online notes this afternoon detailing their losses, which includes guitars, keyboards, other equipment, glassware, and merchandise. Kississippi played a show Thursday night (January 17) at Northeastern’s Afterhours, while Prince Daddy & The Hyena played East Coast Customs in Somerville on Friday (January 18).
“rip to my lil donut 😓” writes Kississippi’s Zoe Reynolds on Facebook. “we were in the allston area when this happened so pls be safe with your gear y’all! i lost some things that were so special to me. if anyone wants to help me save up to replace some of these things, feel free to pay what you want for one of my releases on bandcamp. otherwise, if friends in boston could please keep an eye out it would mean the world to me.”
Kississippi also state that anyone who has already purchased their albums on Bandcamp but still wants to contribute to their recovery fund can make a donation directly to their PayPal at firstname.lastname@example.org.
