VEGA got jacked.
According to a blog post the band put up on its MySpace page yesterday, someone stole the band's gear on Wednesday night as the band toured through Sacramento, California.
As of yet, Alan Palomo and Co. have not canceled VEGA's show with Grizzly Bear in New York City, festival dates at Fun Fun Fun Fest, or the September tour for his other project, Neon Indian.
