PHILADELPHIA, PA (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — After performing a two-night stand in Philadelphia last night, rock trio Mae woke up to find their van and trailer stolen.
“This morning we woke up to find our van, trailer, all instruments, equipment and merchandise had been stolen from the hotel parking lot. This misfortune has fallen among many of our friends in the past and after touring for 8 years this sort of thing is bound to happen. We have four dates left on our tour and will play the shows with the help of our friends in Deas Vail and Jenny Owen Youngs. It's in these moments that our fans lift us up and remind us why we do what we do. We thank you for the immediate outpouring of love and support.” –Mae
Despite this curveball, the trio–Dave Elkins (lead vocals/guitars), Jacob Marshall (drums) and Zach Gehring (guitar)–have rented a van to finish out the remaining dates of their U.S. tour. The group is currently accepting fan donations for the loss. Fans can donate here: http://www.whatismae.com/donate .
