The Locust Robbed In St. Louis

THE LOCUST have posted the following update:

“THE LOCUST’s van was broken into and robbed in St Louis over the weekend at a grocery store after the show. Many valuable items were stolen (COMPUTERS, IPODS, CASH, PASSPORTS, RENT MONEY, ETC) and the loss has been devastating to the band. The band’s insurance does not cover theft so the loss is on THE LOCUST. Three One G has set up a way to donate to the band if you are interested. Click this link to make a donation!!! Thanks so much.”
