It’s one of the many perils of being on the road, and unfortunately it came true for the New London duo Eric Stevenson and Elizabeth Jancewicz.
According to a blog post by Jancewicz, the two had an off night Sunday, which they spent at a friend’s apartment in Washington, D.C. The next morning they awoke to a shattered window and missing GPS, iPod, and most of the money they made on tour missing.
Despite the huge loss, Jancewicz manages to look on the bright side. Their gear, laptops, and car were not taken.
“… even though we did lose so much last night, this tour has been the most encouraging and successful in terms of connecting with people and feeling like we’re actually developing a bit of a fan base,” Jancewicz said in the post. “We’re so grateful to all of you who’ve been supporting us, even emotionally, along this tour. And we’re going to keep going as long as we can.
“This isn’t a stop, just a setback.”
Pocket Vinyl just released a “mini-play” album last month, which is a cute name they gave for a 7″ record with 11 short tracks. They also happen to be pretty darn talented artist, and have plenty of cool artwork for sale.
