A Minnesota-based band is asking the public for help because its tour van was burglarized.
Dead Man Winter said it happened Friday in St. Louis. According to the Facebook post, the bandits took off with a lot of expensive and important stuff: laptops, tablets, money, clothes, and more.
"Russ doesn't even have any underwear left," Dave Simonett (also of Trampled by Turtles) said.
Simonett noted that some of the laptops contain music recordings that aren't stored anywhere else.
"Though we can't replace all the ideas and music lost, we would love to be able to replace the gear that we use as tools in our trade," Simonett said.
So the group started a GoFundMe. Within 18 hours, the band raised $17,000 of its $20,000 goal.
"I'm going to thank you all individually soon but holy (expletive) thank you all for the love on gofundme you are insane and I love you," the group tweeted out.
Dead Man Winter is currently on its Furnace Tour. It's supposed to play in Nashville on Saturday and in Louisville on Sunday. The group will be back in Minnesota on June 10, but the St. Cloud show is already sold out.
