Please Keep your Eyes open and your thoughts with a good friend of KEXP.....
Our good friend, Greg Perez, who has provided the photographs for multitudes of KEXP events, had his Ballard home burglarized last Monday April 13th. A few words from Greg:
"We've got homeowners insurance to cover almost everything, which is a relief, but what they did take from us are a lot of the work and memories both of us have collected over the last year. We're talking at least a year's worth of photos, wedding pictures, honeymoon pictures, concert pictures, all of our digital music, our design work, personal correspondences, contact information, the list goes on. Some if not most of it had been backed up, but a lot of our stuff from the last six months had not. It hurts to even type this. We'll likely never see those memories again.
That said, we need your help. It's not often I reach out for it, but here goes: I've compiled a list of the "big ticket" items that they got (there's plenty more, including 200+ DVDs and about 50+ video games, jewelry and other stuff). I'm hoping if you guys see this list and happen to be trolling craigslist or ebay or any other online sellers that you might keep us in mind. Again, the point isn't to get this stuff back, necessarily, but to call out patterns; if a lot of the same items trace back to the same general area or seller, that's evidence we can use."
