Back in September, local alt-folk trio Rin Tin Tiger had the unfortunate experience of getting more than $5,000 in gear and merchandise stolen from bassist Sean Sullivan’s car while he was moving into a temporary sublet. Now, the band is looking to the local community to help raise about half of the money necessary to replace the stolen items.
Among the gear and merch taken from Sullivan’s car were his American Deluxe Fender P-Bass, Mark Bass 1×12 combo amp, Roland bass street cube, BOSS TU-2 tuning pedal, and various Monster cables, not to mention about 150 CDs, t-shirts, buttons, and other merch. In an effort to get themselves back on their feet, Rin Tin Tiger started an Indiegogo campaign with the hope of raising $3,000. Those funds should allow them to pick up where they left off during what has been quite the eventful year for the band, seeing their appearance on the Soundcheck Local Band Stage at Live 105’s BFD, the release of their completely self-funded record Splinter Remedies, and their first headlining gig at Great American Music Hall.
Below, watch Rin Tin Tiger’s video about their fundraising efforts, stream and/or download Splinter Remedies, and get details on the band’s three upcoming Bay Area shows. And don’t forget to head over to their Indiegogo page, where you can get all kinds of schwag in exchange for a small donation.
