In what appears to be a very depressing trend nationwide, Iowa City eight-member Reggae group Public Property had most of their equipment stolen sometime after they went to bed Saturday night after an extensive tour. The losses total around $12,000 and they unfortunately are uninsured. They managed to borrow equipment from their brothers in jam Euforquestra to play their Sunday night gig at Mahoney’s. Euforquestra has established a PayPal account to try to help recoup some of their losses. They also are planning to hold some kind of benefit concert in the near future. You can hit the News page on their site to get the details. You can send PayPal payments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
