Project Out of Bounds raising funds to replace stolen guitar

Plus, The Che Café plans one final blowout

Project Out of Bounds have launched a crowdfunding campaign to replace a stolen guitar that belonged to frontman Kris Asgharzadeh. According to a statement on their IndieGogo page, the Fender Stratocaster was stolen while the band was performing in Las Vegas earlier this month. In addition to the guitar, the case, some cables, a tuner and some extra strings were also taken. 

The band has set a goal of $2,200 to pay for the stolen guitar, which drummer Ryan Rutherford tells CityBeat in an email was being kept in what the band thought was a secure place.

"The kicker is that it was stolen from the place the venue told us to leave all of our equipment," he says. "They ensured us that it was a secure spot and it was right outside of the security office for the entire building."

Since the guitar was stolen before the band took the stage, Asgharzadeh had to borrow a guitar from a member of the band Maoli. And while Rutherford says that the guitar isn't a collector's item, it has value beyond money.

"He loved that guitar," Rutherford says. "I don't believe it was super-rare but the sentimental value was huge. He actually received that guitar as a gift from his original guitar mentor."

As an added incentive to anyone who chooses to donate to the replacement of the guitar, the band is offering free downloads of their music, signed copies of their albums and free admission to their shows.


Before The Che Café closes in July, the all-ages UCSD venue will hold one last show that it's calling For the Fucking Kids Fest. The show will feature performances by Danny Tanner, Retox, The Frights, Kids, Jacob Turnbloom (of Mrs. Magician) and Sledding with Tigers, among others, with more acts to be announced. For the Fucking Kids Fest will start at noon on Sunday, July 13. Tickets are $7.
