Members of the indie band Family of the Year had finished playing at the Troubador on Thursday night when they returned home to Silver Lake and parked their rental van on Allesandro Way near Loma Vista Place. Some time overnight the van – and all their instruments as well as amplifiers- were stolen, reports keyboard player Christine Schroeter. It was the second time their van was stolen off the same street. Schroeter said the band is seeking the public’s help to recover at least some of their instruments before starting an overseas tour.
It all feels awful and totally unfair. It’s the second van in the last couple months that’s been stolen from us on this street, but this time this one wasn’t ours (u-haul’s) but was filled with everything we love … A lot of our instruments are very important to us and we know every little ding and imperfection on them. Any and all help and support is super appreciated.
