|June 22, 2005 - RUFIO GEAR AND MERCH STOLEN AFTER MONTREAL SHOW WITH ALKALINE TRIO /BAND ISSUES STATEMENT TO FANS ASKING FOR HELP
RUFIO, currently on the road with Alkaline Trio in support of their upcoming release, The Comfort of Home, had the misfortune of losing all of their gear, merch and luggage last night when the band's trailer was stolen after their show in Montreal, Quebec.
The band issued the following statement today to their fans, asking for their help:
After an amazing show in Montreal we returned to our hotel to find our trailer containing all of our music equipment, merchandise, and luggage, gone. Police officials say the trailer was unhitched from the van and pushed back with enough room for a vehicle to reattach itself to the trailer and leave with the trailer in tow. Needless to say, all of us in Rufio are in a state of despondency and are asking for any help you can give to get us back on our feet. These people took our livelihoods and everything we have from us. If you can find it in you to give even $10, we would deeply appreciate it. You can donate money by sending money to firstname.lastname@example.org through PayPal or to:
c/o New Noise Management
207 N. Broadway
Santa Ana, CA 92701
Thanks so much for even the smallest gift you can give,
Jon and Rufioî
The band will finish up the Alkaline Trio dates with borrowed equipment before jumping on the Warped Tour June 6 in Pomona.
