Joe Raglani (Saint Louis) and Steve Hauschildt (Cleveland), two experimental noise artists who come through Chicago regularly, had most of their gear stolen while on tour in May at New York’s No Fun Fest. Enemy (1550 N. Milwaukee, third floor) is hosting a benefit show for them this Saturday at 9 PM. The lineup, headliner first, is Magic Missile, Kevin Drumm & Vadim Sprikut, TV Pow & Raglani, Tiger Hatchery, Face Worker, and Pisspisspissmoanmoanmoan. Admission is a suggested donation of $5 to $10. 

Raglani had this to say on the Chondritic Sound message board shortly after the robbery:

On Tour with Steve Hauschildt in NY and our van was broken into and our gear was stolen when I went to get some pizza with Keith Fullerton Whitman at 4 in the morning. When I got back to the van a guy had our shit in his car and when I ran towards it, he tried to hit me with his car.

Here is a list of the stuff that was stolen. I will have serial numbers when I get back to STL. Please help spread the word. I am screwed without this gear.

Other benefit shows have already taken place in Cleveland and Saint Louis, but because Raglani and Hauschildt are no strangers to Enemy, the good folks who run the venue are doing their part as well.
