Maren Parusel's national tour took a turn for the worse when the band's tour van got broken into in New York City early Sunday morning. The van was parked on West 87th Street near Central Park; somebody broke the lock on the door sometimes between 3 and 7 a.m., walking away with guitars, roughly $1,100 and other items. Guitarist Ariel Levine posted a detailed list of the stolen items here. You can contact him at 917-749-1116 or midnitevigilantemusic@yahoo.com if you happen to be a New Yorker with any info. Despite the stolen gear, the band's carrying on with the tour with a show tonight in Washington D.C.
