LA psych rockers The Warlocks had their gear stolen in San Francisco last night after playing Brick and Mortar with Fine Points and Spiral Electric.
The theft is part of a disturbing trend where touring bands get robbed after playing San Francisco. Just a few weeks ago the same thing happened to Fat White Family on its San Francisco tour stop.
[jump] According to the band's booking agent, The Warlocks are currently at the police station filing a report. The group couldn't immediately be reached for comment. But here's what the group posted on Facebook and Instagram:
“Gone baby gone! All of our gear got jacked in San Francisco last night. Including my precious Gretsch Black Rose. I guess I'm the idiot for taking such a guitar with me. We are filing police reports and doing all that noise. I think we are like 5-6th band to get robbed in sf in the last few months. My guess it's the same people! Anyways sad day in The Warlocks camp for sure! Fuck!”
