Kentucky Knife Fight frontman Jason Holler appeared on FOX 2's evening news program last night to discuss fundraising efforts the band is undertaking in order to replace its recently stolen, obliterated touring van.
As we reported back in January, KKF's van, affectionately nicknamed the Rage Cage, was stolen in broad daylight outside of Holler's home on the 3200 block on Indiana Avenue. The vehicle was found two days later at a local scrapyard, crushed to pieces.
"I can't imagine they got any more than $500 for scrap," lamented Holler at the time. "But I'm sure they gutted it for parts first and sold those separate."
Over the weekend, Off Broadway played host to a benefit show to raise money for KKF to purchase a new vehicle. In addition, the band is accepting donations through its official website, offering a download of two otherwise-unreleased songs to anyone who donates any amount.
"We still need to raise a lot more money to get ourselves a new van," Holler told FOX 2. "The way we make money in this band is by touring. Now we're out a tour vehicle."
