On April 17, thieves broke into the practice space for Vancouver bands and stole approximately $20,000 worth of equipment.

Band member Bronco Jones wrote the following on Facebook:

My band practice space got broken into last night. The Vicious Cycles, The Jolts, Piggy, Greenback High, Les Spelles all lost gear. In total we lost around 17 guitars and 2 or 3 amps. Probably around $20,000 worth. I am going to be collecting photos of the guitars and amps from the guys and girls that lost them and will post them here. Please help me out by

1. Reposting this.
2. Watching for those guitars.
3. Donating some money to us at [email protected] (paypal or email money to it)

A couple of the guys lost around $5000 worth of gear, and I would really like to help them recover some of it. Some of the guitars still have a lot of money to be paid on them.

Thanks for your help./blockquote>
