Attention all NYC crackheads, return all Dinosaur Jr.'s gear now!

Damn, just when I confessed my new-found love for early 1990s indie-rock, Dinosaur Jr. get their gear stolen in NYC. That sucks, attention all yo’ NYC crackheads, return all that gear immediately.

Anyhow, I am such gear whore that I hope wish they had posted pics of all of those lovely guitars.

After a blistering set last night in Brooklyn, NY the band awoke this morning to find that their trailer had been broken into and all of the gear has been taken. J's Amma guitar, the mountain man guitar, Lou's Rickenbacker... EVERYTHING IS GONE. They are still taking inventory to see what else is gone but they were pretty much wiped out.

Sad news, but I guess there aren't many crackheads reading his blog. And if there are, they might not be from NYC. It would be nice to have some crackheads commenting here, though.
