In two unrelated events, the vans belonging to Chicago bands Gypsyblood and Carbon Tigers have been stolen. Carbon Tigers' equipment was in their van, and they wrote a detailed list of all stolen equipment on their tumblr. Here is the info on the van:

Carbon Tigers' van is a dark green 1999 Dodge RAM License: L669821 If you have ANY information, please email

It's unclear if Gypsyblood's equipment was in their van, but they wrote the van's info on their Facebook page:
