This just in from Uzi & Ari...
bad bad news. we got robbed.
This is really getting old, isn't it? Reading about the misfortunes of Uzi & Ari. Must be a curse upon us. But, as Christian Bale said last night in 'The Dark Knight,' the night is darkest just before the dawn. We hope.
Last night at about 4am, some hoodlums broke into our house, while we were sleeping and made off with the following items:
Roland Juno 106 Synthesizer (black in color)
Nord Electro-2 keyboard (red in color)
Fender Twin Reverb amplifier
Fender Mustang bass guitar (white in color)
Boss DD-5 Digital Delay
Boss DD-6 Digital Delay
Dell Inspiron Notebook Laptop (black in color)
Behringer 1204 FX mixer (dark gray in color)
Tascam 4 Track (light gray)
Korg Electribe ESX1 drum machine (red in color)
Ludwig Acrolyte snare drum (matte silver in color)
and various power cords, guitar cables, etc., totalling about 4500 dollars worth of equipment. i'll post pictures soon.
If you know anyone who might have acquired new equipment like this, please be a good samaritan and let us know. This is just happening too often to bands, it's crippling. We already make such a meager earning, we don't even break even. It's getting harder and harder to justify doing this anymore, it's just an uphill battle constantly. This is the third time we have been robbed, but this is just ugly, to be robbed in your own home while you are sleeping.
Anyway, I would feel awful to ask for donations again. So many of you were so generous in donating for the vinyl, I know our fan base isn't huge and you must be exhausted with your own struggle and strife.
Please tell as many people as you know about this, maybe someone knows something about it. Just let's get the word out.
We will, however be throwing a sort of benefit show/party in downtown Salt Lake in late August. We're trying to do it on a rooftop or something cool that a lot of people will want to come to. I'll post more information as I get it.
Sorry to be such a downer. I posted a new song, 'Wolf Eggs,' from the new record, a little earlier than I had planned, to lighten the mood. I don't want you coming to our page and just feeling bad all the time. We'll get through this!
