News:: Buck 65 Gets Robbed

There's been a few stories on the Internet over the last couple months about bands getting robbed, and now it's struck close to the hill's home, as Mount Uniacke's own Buck 65 has had $5000 worth of gear stolen during a show in Victoria. Now all theft is greasy, but there's something uber-grease about boosting from an artist when they're on-stage trying to entertain the people. And that goes double for someone like Buck and any other indie artist that gets robbed - I mean it's not like they're making money hand over fist, many are barely breaking even when they go out on tour.

So, if by some weird chance the person(s) responsible are reading this, here's the deal: you are huge bags of douche. There was also some 40 hours of video footage intended for a DVD stolen, and Buck is asking the person who has it to bring it back, no questions asked. So, to the sleazy thieves, I hope you consider bringing the footage back to Buck, it's really the least you can do.

Here's a song that likely encapsulates how Buck was feeling in the days after the theft.

On to some happier Buck news, he recently played a set with the Nova Scotia symphony orchestra, which got rave reviews from both the local media and other outlets that covered it. Well, CBC Radio2 has the concert up on it's site now, and I have to say, it really is quite impressive. So go have yourself a listen. But for those to cool to click on that link, here's a couple samples.
