I've just received word that Michael Tonn, guitarist for The Toes, Sons of Dawn and Trainwreck Kelly, was recently the victim of a burglary. According to an email sent by Tonn's roommate, Dan Fancher, their North Avenue house was broken into at some point between July 4 and July 6. The thieves got away with two of Tonn's guitars. Here are Fancher's descriptions of the instruments:

One is the electric that Michael usually plays with The Toes (pictured):

Baby blue Fender Jag-stang, mismatched knobs, mother-of-pearl-look inlay, orange circular sticker below the bridge.

The other is the guitar Michael has written most of his songs on over the past decade:

Seagull acoustic steel string, cedar top. Identifiable by plain headstock with no decoration. Seagull guitars usually have a seagull on the headstock; this one has been replaced 3 times and is plain wood now.

Now, if I were to break into someone's home and steal instruments, I might aim for less distinctive pieces. But then, maybe that's why I'm not a crook. Well that, and, generally speaking, I'm not a total asshole. But I digress.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Burlington police, or Michael Tonn directly. He can be reached at 363-4962.
