BERKELEY, Calif. —
Things were looking up Monday night for a touring Michigan-based folk band who had their van and equipment stolen in the East Bay.
The indie-folk group Breathe Owl Breathe woke up Saturday morning to find someone had made off with their van parked in the Berkeley hills.
Andrea Moreno-Beals told KTVU that the thieves have left her and her band mates with only the clothes on their backs.
"All the rest of my clothing…they're in the van," she said. "My purse. My wallet. My driver's license. All of our equipment."
The group said the equipment was valued at more than $20,000.
They said after people saw their story last night on KTVU, they received enough donations to buy used minivan.
The band said their old van was found gutted and trashed, but some of their merchandise salvageable. The group plans to head back to Michigan Tuesday.
