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.
