  • This Time Next Year

Normally, we'd consider Walnut Creek a safe-enough place. But the East Bay suburb wasn't very good to a trailer holding the gear of hometown pop-punk outfit This Time Next Year -- the band's poor trailer was stolen the other night, right on the city's usually placid, oak-lined streets.

The trailer held pretty much all of the Equal Vision Records' band's gear and tour merch, so they're asking for help in getting it back. After the jump, we've got a full list of the equipment stolen.

Here's the gear. As you can see, it's a lot of stuff:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
