Traitors robbed in St. Louis; blame promoter

Thursday, August 21, 2014 7:16 AM PT


Floridian downtempo hardcore/metal outfit Traitors had their van broken into outside the venue Fubar in St. Louis, MO last night. Relieved of "personals and instruments," the band says that they may be unable to finish their current tour. Here's the official word:

"Our van was just broken into at Fubar in St.Louis after we were promised security for our van by the promoter. Lost a ton of our personals and instruments. Not sure if we can finish this tour, if anyone could help us out it would mean the world to us. Thank you all. Paypal: Domination305@yahoo.com"

Traitors van broken into

Obviously, the band is not too thrilled with the show promoter. And while most of Traitors' fans are wholly supportive, a few believe that the band is partially responsible after making their touring vehicle overly conspicuous and recently posting multiple photos of said vehicle via social media, such as the one below.

UPDATE: Despite the theft, Traitors now say that they will continue the tour: "We are hurting very bad financially but our fans mean the world to us and we won't let this stop us so we will be finishing all the dates of the tour."

This band is one of the most rock star attitude-blow bards I've ever met. Claim they're a hardcore band and they play two notes on an 8 string guitar. Rollin up in a $45,000 Mercedes van. Yell at the promoter when the promoter had given them PLENTY OF WARNING. fck you idiots for only seeing the bands side. I hope this band breaks up just like every other DROP X band out there. fcking dumb

These dorks parked in a CLOSED lot with a sign that says "NO PARKING, PERMIT ONLY" after being told NOT to park there. There were 2 shows that night at Fubar, and NOBODY ELSE was broken into. ALSO, they were playing when it happened. Their instruments were on stage. ALSO, the nerd with the stinky dreadlocks said to the promoter,"THEY STOLE MY $400 PS3". HEY DIPSHIT, ps3's are $150 now! If you pay $400 for a ps3, i will sell you some shampoo for those stinky dreads- $200 a bottle. BABIES.

This is a rather easy fix. Read your contract. Touring vehicle parking and security is a negotiated line item. It's rarely something discussed and given d.o.s.

That being said, it's a mute point regarding them being in a Benz Sprinter, a Sanford & Son special or a new tour bus. If security was in the contract, the club is totally liable. Maybe all these bands complaining about their vehicles being broken into should have a long talk with their booking agents and tour managers.

anonymous
8/21/2014 9:25:47 AM
^^ implying there's any kind of contract.
ive booked these guys twice and its just talking it out with the drummer. i'm positive the promoter said "sure just park over there" and they just wanna blame it on someone else as if the promoter is an insurance policy for you. of course you should try and take it out on the person who took a gambling risk on booking your shit tier band. flip your empty band

Right, because the kinds of promoters willing to book this shit really have the ability and cash for this type of shit. And the only booking agents who'll work with this crap are just happy they got someone to email them back.

Y'all assume so much shit. Who says they didn't pay for their van? The band was promised security, and that's that. A verbal contract is as legal as paper. Do you even comment on lambgoat BRO? Kill yourself, you nay-saying homebodies. It doesn't matter what the band sounds like either, they're touring and doing their thing, so fck you. You live at home and don't get to see the world. Go back to smacking your ugly girlfriends breasts. By the way, she's fcking the dudes in the band.

My van was broken into at fubar in 2009.
We didn't whine because it's littered with homeless people. So, we found him, bashed his head in.
we saw him running away, and had witnesses.

I know its unfathomable that a band could possibly afford a 45k van but avg hard working band can make 25k yr easily someone above said they are only in it for the money, why else would they be in it (besides good pssy). there not signed and have been busting their asses for years and can't catch a break. my band ( Physics Of Demise) is waiting for the big break too (it's getting close we feel). if you like us on fb grab our full length is 10 dollars to download, which is basicly nothing...

Tune low, play slow and just wait for the trim and cash to come rolling onto shore. LIVING THE DREAM

how is it the venue's fault? they parked on a lot NOT OWNED by the venue that had a sign on it that said LOT CLOSED. The venue never told them where to park. in fact, the venue didnt even have a contract with them. The promoter RENTED THE VENUE OUT to throw the show on. They had a $150 guarantee, and the promoter (who told them not to park there) because he felt bad, paid them an ADDITIONAL $250 on top

anonymous
8/21/2014 3:12:56 PM
i have been parking at fubar for 6 years, 5 days a week, and have never been broken into. its not the venue- its the people that are not being responsibly aware of their surroundings, nor the little "welcome thief" signs they leave when they park. This shit happens everywhere. i will donate $1 so you can get a new ps3.

Suck it up, boys. Shit happens. If you were too stupid to have an insurance policy that covers theft on a fcking Mercedes with your logo plastered all over it, you deserve the agonizing discomfort of touring in your air conditioned, now-well-ventilated, PS3-less RV of a tour van. That's touring. Deal with it.

My band was playing on the other side of the venue that night. From what I heard from one of the club employees - the promoter told them that if they arrived to the venue early, they could park out front and the door guy would watch their van. They did not arrive early as instructed, and instead decided to park down the street at an unsecured parking lot, that very clearly says "No Parking".

As far as the "you wish your band could tour in a 45,000 van" comment. The metal scene is more about community than anything else. This band coming in with their shitty single, vocalist sounds like garbage etc etc, in a $45,000 van playing to a bunch of kids who hate their lives, parents, etc etc, probably aren't too stoked on seeing that shit.

anonymous
8/22/2014 11:35:01 AM
I know I wouldn't be. I appreciate when bands live within or below their means, and have some kind of art to back it up, be it music, a message etc. This band is like the rich kid in college who buys his friends off but goes home to cry by himself everyday. They won't be around next year and I can sleep better at night knowing that.

anonymous

A van from 1998 with no stickers would tour just the same, and you wouldn't look like c-cky jerks for it. Fix the window, sell the van and buy some common sense with the money.

I played Fubar in a touring metal band this summer (the show and promoter sucked but that doesn't matter). There are signs in the entranceway that specifically warn all bands and attendees of extreme danger in regards to break ins. They warn you away from specific blocks, and the door guy and promoter both mentioned the importance of finding a spot directly within sight of the front of the club. I don't imagine it went much differently for these guys.

anonymous
8/22/2014 1:26:03 PM
You guys come to a state you're not from, you show up hour late, in you're $45,000 BMW van covered in band logos, parked it down the road away from the venue where you can't see it, and then immediately went and blamed the promoter after it happened? Why didn't you look for the guys who took stuff before you left, and then go stomp on their skulls? That's fcking metal.

anonymous
8/22/2014 1:26:55 PM
Wow...You guys have literally blamed everyone else but yourselves on this one. You all seem to have these whiny rockstar ego's, like you already made it to the top or something, but personally... I don't think you guys even deserve to play. You're music is terrible, if you speed it up it's just deathcore again, if you slow it down...then you'd basically be going backwards. There's no growth for this music. I believe you're all shredders, so please...start shredding again.

anonymous
8/22/2014 2:18:43 PM
You all seem to forget the part where the promoter told them to park there and he would pay them back he also promised private security for that lot now its not 100% the promoters fault but he also didn't hold up his word so he is at blame its 50/50

Played FUBAR a few months ago, the staff make it abundantly clear that you should always have someone near your vehicle keeping an eye out, plus it's St.Louis aka Southern Detroit and their douchey tour van might as well have a "Please Rob Us" sign on it.

So, absolutely no gear was stolen? and these guys are saying they are hurting financially? Did they have to immediately go out and buy new macbooks? Laptops, tv's and ps3's are not necessary for touring, and weren't even possibilities until just this last decade. But they love their fans so much that they are going to make the sacrifice of having to drive without netflix. pathetic.
