Chicago-based band Twin Peaks had approximately $5,000 worth of guitars, amps and other gear stolen from their trailer in Humboldt Park this week.
It was announced on the band’s social media on Tuesday afternoon that 11 items were taken from their trailer overnight, including a 1997 American Fender Telecaster, a 1960s Kay CustomKraft and a 1960s Epiphone Caballero Acoustic guitar. The band urged fans and followers to keep their eyes open for any of their items popping up in pawn shops or on Craigslist, promising “anyone who finds any of these items gets free Twin Peaks shows for life and some other rewards.”
According to Chicago’s WGN9, drummer Connor Brodner “noticed something was wrong when he went out to the band’s trailer, which was parked outside of his home in the 1000 block of North Kedzie in Humboldt Park, Tuesday morning.”
Guitarist Colin Croom received the stolen Telecaster when he was six years old. Brodner said, “It was the thing that introduced him to music. You know, something that’s become his life.”
