This past weekend, Epilogues played a benefit show at Herman's Hideaway, and evidently, while the band wasn't looking, some unsavory character entered the club's greenroom and helped himself to drummer Jason Hoke's laptop, which contained all things Epilogues. Shortly after sending out a rather vitriolic MySpace bulletin ("so, to the piece of shit that had the audacity to rob us during a charity event... hope you enjoy the laptop, because it will probably be the highlight of your simple life you fucking tool."), the band -- thanks to the invaluable efforts of Mike Roth from Herman's, who pulled and reviewed security tapes from that evening -- was able to track down the culprit and recover the laptop. -- Dave Herrera
