  • Dominant Legs without their gear, which is pretty much the situation they're in now.

One of our favorite local guitar-pop bands, Dominant Legs, is on tour now with Eleanor Friedberger. Unfortunately, on Wednesday, while the band was in Portland, a large amount of musical instruments, computer equipment, and clothes -- including frontman Ryan Lynch's lucky '87 S.F. Giants sweatshirt -- was stolen out of its tour van.

In an email, Lynch tells us the van was broken into while parked at 6th and Ash in Portland. He says the bandmembers were only a block away, for an hour, while the break-in occurred.

Bands have been known to recover their stolen gear before, so in the spirit of helping one of our local artists, we've got a full list of all the stolen gear after the jump. If you have any info on where their gear might be, please email Dominant Legs.

Here's the stolen stuff:

- Brand-new Fender Stratocaster (Olympic White)

- Mexican Fender Telecaster (Natural Ash woodgrain)

- Ovation Magnum 2 bass guitar (crack in headstock)

- Three bags with two Macintosh laptops, one iPad, and various clothes (including the lucky Giants sweatshirt.

If you have any info on these items, once again, please email the band. We wish them luck.

    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
