PLANES MISTAKEN FOR STARS Bass Ripped Off, Help Needed

Denver's PLANES MISTAKEN FOR STARS, who are currently touring with MASTODON, AGAINST ME! and CURSIVE, have issued the following update:

"[Wednesday] night at the MASTODON, AGAINST ME!, CURSIVE show Neil's bass was ripped off outside of the club... THIS IS WHERE WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!!!! This bass was the world to Neil and was his baby so we need to pull together and find it for him!!!! So please help!! The bass was stolen outside of the Warfield at 982 Market Street in San Francisco between 4:15pm and 4:45pm on Wednesday, May 2nd 2007. There was security 'watching' our gear but somebody pulled a fast one. The bass was seen right up until 4:15 by the guys in CURSIVE and has not been since. It was a 1979 Washburn 'Hawk' bass long scale the knobs were all different colors: one black, two gold, and one metal, it was wood grain with a pearl trim and there was a crack between the knobs that also made it his bass. The bass was in a hard, black sbk case with several red and white spray paint stencils all over it. Things like: 'Git Some,' 'Fragile,' 'Planes' with thunder in the night forever and a planes skull, 'Please Be Gentle,' and there was several other random one-of-a-kind art prints on the case as well.

"If you have any information, please email [email protected] or call 773-793-5244. WE REALLY NEED YOUR HELP!!! AND THERE WILL BE A REWARD IF IT IS FOUND!!!!!!!!"

PLANES MISTAKEN FOR STARS' latest album, "Mercy", was released last October via Abacus Recordings. The follow-up to 2004's "Up In Them Guts", "Mercy" was recorded at Seattle's Red Room Recording Studios with producer extraordinaire Matt Bayles (ISIS, PEARL JAM, MASTODON).
