Some thieving lowlife swiped a pair of guitars from Those Darlins' tour van just hours after they performed with Best Coast and JEFF the Brotherhood at the Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis Saturday.
Earlier in the day, the Tennessee cowpoke rockers' social networks were lit up with excitement about the petite Jessi Darlin celebrating her birthday -- but by Sunday a.m., the tone had shifted to disappointment. "MINNEAPOLIS - OUR VAN WAS ROBBED. HELP!" they tweeted. The two instruments in question are a red Fender Jaguar bass, and a white Richmond electric guitar.
Here's how it unfolded on Twitter and Facebook.

Know any pawn shops?! Look for Red 2006 fender jaguar bass, matching headstock, fender badass II bridge, gash on upper edge.-- Those Darlins (@those_darlins) July 29, 2012
And a white Richmond guitar, Seymour Duncan bridge pickup, will post pictures ASAP-- Those Darlins (@those_darlins) July 29, 2012
Here's a shot of the now-missing bass taken at the show:

Looks like the girls didn't let this mishap on the final night on their current tour completely dampen their spirits, though. From Facebook: "Thank you usa! And thank everyone (except the guitar thieves) for making it the best birthday a girl could have. Love you all! So excited for the future."
