Los Angeles doesn't take kindly to strangers, apparently.

A bit of news that certainly doesn't do much to disprove the idea of Los Angeles-as-hellhole...

After performing an opening set at Silver Lake's Spaceland last week, Bryan Scary and the Shredding Tears opted to stay in Los Angeles for a bit in an effort to record new material, and wound up with a stolen van. A van stolen from Franklin Avenue, one of Hollywood's most peaceful streets? Grim. In addition to having their van and, thus, valuable equipment stolen, they're stranded in L.A.! CMJ has a more complete story here, and the band is accepting donations to make up for their loss of musical equipment, a fund to which you can contribute via their MySpace page. Why should you help? Because Bryan Scary and the Shredding Tears are GREAT, and because they're likely itching to make it back to Scaryville.
