Pocket Vinyl can’t thank their fans enough.
The New London duo were on tour in Washington D.C. last week when their car was broken into. About $1,500 was taken, which was all the money they had made on tour. (Read that story here)
Word spread about their trouble, and Pocket Vinyl says the outpouring of support has been huge. Elizabeth Jancewitz made a blog post Feb. 6 about how much the support meant to them.
Then, over the next 2 and a half days, we have been completely overwhelmed and amazed at the army of friends, fans, even complete strangers, who have stepped up to help us in this difficult time. Whenever we’ve had internet during these few days Eric has sat staring into his screen with hands over mouth and tears in his eyes as he’s read your wonderful, encouraging, and loving notes, and to see how selflessly and generously you’ve all been working at helping us out. We both feel amazed and humbled. Thank you, thank you all so much. You have no idea how incredible it feels right now to see the care that so many of you feel for us. We just hope that someday we can show you all even just a little of the love you’ve given to us. You’re all so beautiful and amazing.
In a video posted today, the two thank their fans for everything they’ve done, saying online sales made up for everything they lost, and then some. Watch that video below, and if you still want to support them, check out the band’s music and artwork at pocketvinyl.com. They’ll also be at The Workshop in Mystic later this month, Feb. 23.
