    Castanets and Jana Hunter Victimized by Robbery - Regardless, the freak-folk musicians tour on

    Indie musicians Jana Hunter and Castanets had their gear stolen just a few days ago while they were touring together across the U.S.. Hunter sent out a message over the weekend detailing the list of stolen items (see the message below). The two folk acts will still tour regardless of the robbery, performing together in three more Texas shows. Hunter and the Castanets have set up a PayPal account for donations through the mutualincarnation@gmail.com address to compensate for their huge loss.

    This is Hunter's message:

    "So, the story is, last night we played in tucson at solar culture. afterward, we loaded our stuff up, went downtown, had a drink, and went to a house to crash on the floor. en route, we damaged a door, making it such that the door won't close and such that eventually, before we return the vehicle to the rental company, we'll have to pay on the order of 2 grand to replace the door.

    seeing as how we had an unsecured vehicle, ray (castanets) slept in the van. sometime during the night, some brave fuck(s) very quietly opened the back door and took what they could carry. we assume their were more than one of them given all the shit they managed to walk away with. we're gathering what serial numbers we can, but in the meantime, here's a rudimentary list:

    JH gear-
    fender classical guitar (ser.#9505151116)
    new boss 20xl loopstation
    boss reverb/delay pedal
    original digitech whammy pedal
    original b k butler tubedriver overdrive pedal
    peavey 6 mixer (ser.#k0344300)
    shure beta 98/s
    custom flashlight circuit-bended thing

    Castanets gear-
    late 60's blue fender music master guitar
    line 6 delay pedal
    boss tremolo
    mutron volume/wah pedal
    boss tuner pedal
    digitech metal master
