Convictions van, trailer, gear stolen after SXSW show

Ohio band Convictions had their van, trailer, and gear stolen in Irving, Texas following a performance at the So What? Music Festival on Saturday. According to the band, "they took our entire livelihood." As such, Convictions has launched a $30,000 Gofundme campaign to recover what they estimate to be their losses. Here is a statement from guitarist Joshua Canode:
"As I'm sure most of you know, today we lost everything. I am holding back tears writing this. "Our van and trailer was stolen from us last night after playing South by So What, and we are stranded in Texas. We have NOTHING. The thieves took EVERYTHING we worked our whole lives for. No van. No trailer. No money. No gear. They took our entire livelihood. All we have left is the clothes on our backs and thousands of dollars of debt we went into for our tour with Like Moths to Flames. "We created a Gofundme if you wish to donate. Because we aren't really sure how we can continue as a band if we can't regain what is lost, if I'm being transparent. We are estimating 30,000 in losses. We will post a whole list of everything stolen soon. "Somehow, someway, we will persevere. We just need a miracle in order to do that. Please like this and share. We are in a dark place and don't know how to move on without your help."
