While in the midst of one of their first multi-city US tours, Minneapolis dance-pop quintet Solid Gold received a hard blow. Their van was broken into and half of their gear was stolen, including a few very essential pieces from their live show, which relies heavily on pre-recorded dance beats and harmonies from their laptop. "The things that were stolen were our show computer, which had all of our live files, music programs, and demos, plus the audio interface we use live, and the iPod which had all of the backups on it," says bass player Adam Hurlburt. "It happened in the early morning after our last Brooklyn show, outside of the place we were staying."
The band had to cancel their Pittsburgh show and return home to regroup. In an attempt to replace their lost gear, they will be playing a last-minute fundraising show at the Entry this coming Monday with Marijuana Death Squads (most of Building Better Bombs), Batmen, and one other TBA act.
The show is 18+ and $10, and tickets are already available on First Ave's site.
