After playing a rain-soaked set at Lollapalooza last night, psych-rock outfit Portugal. The Man found out that its van and attached trailer of gear were stolen. The group has been trying to spread the word via Twitter, telling people in Chicago (and, by now, anywhere in the Midwest) to be on the lookout for a burgundy, 15-passenger Ford van (Alaska plates: FJH244) pulling a black trailer. Folks are retweeting to get the word out, and the band posted a couple of photos of the stolen vehicle, one of which is at the head of this post.
Stay trained to the band’s Twitter account and website for updates and a list of the stolen gear.
