…but your trailer has been stolen.
From The Decemberists’ official site/message board:
At some time between 3 a.m. and 8 a.m., the band’s gear trailer was stolen from outside a house in SE Portland, near the Aladdin Theatre. Heartbreakingly, it housed practically every piece of instrumentation belonging to the Decemberists.
So this is a sort of call to arms; I figure if we get the word out, maybe we all can collectively track it down.
The trailer in question is a WHITE 6′ x 12′ WELLS CARGO trailer. There’s a green ‘VT’ (as in Vermont) sticker on the side door, among other smaller stickers, a BRITISH FLAG sticker on the front, and a ‘NO ON 36’ sticker on the left back door. The license number is U34 8717 (Oregon).
Any information you might have on this, please report to the Portland Police. If you do see it, by all means call 911.
This is throwing off the next couple tour dates I believe. Call the venues if you believe there may be a conflict. I’m sure it’ll be resolved quickly. I trust in humanity. What can I say. However, there is no word yet on the whereabouts of adel.
