LA psych rockers The Warlocks had their gear stolen in San Francisco last night after playing Brick and Mortar with Fine Points and Spiral Electric.

The theft is part of a disturbing trend where touring bands get robbed after playing San Francisco. Just a few weeks ago the same thing happened to Fat White Family on its San Francisco tour stop. 

According to the band's booking agent, The Warlocks are currently at the police station filing a report. The group couldn't immediately be reached for comment. But here's what the group posted on Facebook and Instagram:

"Gone baby gone! All of our gear got jacked in San Francisco last night. Including my precious Gretsch Black Rose. I guess I'm the idiot for taking such a guitar with me. We are filing police reports and doing all that noise. I think we are like 5-6th band to get robbed in sf in the last few months. My guess it's the same people! Anyways sad day in The Warlocks camp for sure! Fuck!"

  • 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.'"
