On December 10, The Rust Belt will not be silent...even though as you can see below, some scumbag stole all the gear of one of the bands performing that night.

And it wasn't a couple of items from backstage.  It was their entire trailer with nearly everything they had taken from them.

The I-Rock 93.5 Not So Silent Night

December 10 at The Rust Belt we are having our holiday party with Discrepancies, Alborn, Crobot, and Eva Under Fire.

Tickets are only $19.35 and are on sale now at therustbeltqc.com.  It's an all-ages show that will include gifts from Santa and a lot of rock for your mistletoe.

It will be a holly jolly night and an escape from the current dismay one of the bands are in.

Someone stole Crobot's trailer


Yeah.  The whole f'n trailer.  Their guitars are safe, but all their amplifiers, PA, monitors, drums, trailer, and more are gone.

A friend of the band Maia Donohue has put together a GoFundMe with the band saying "We’re going through every avenue and option we have to retrieve our stolen gear and will continue to do so. We fear though our options are few and won’t come close to what we’ll need to get back on our feet."

"We hate that it has to come to this but anything helps."

The guys from Crobot are cool dudes

Brandon, Bishop, Tim, and Dan were in town over the summer and stopped by the Rock & Roll Mansion.  And they are cool down to Earth guys.  You never want to see this happen to anyone but when it's a band you already know and are bringing back to town it makes your blood boil even more.

Hopefully, the Austin Texas police can catch the d-bags that stole their trailer and we can welcome Crobot back to the Quad Cities with open arms and ears.

Top 6 Stinkiest Places In The Quad Cities

We asked people of the Quad Cities, "What are the stinkiest places in the Quad Cities area?" A place that you drive by and say YUCK! That STINKS!

This is what people had to say:

Can You Pan for Gold in Illinois? What if You Find Some?

They say these rivers might have hidden treasure!
