Conversation with Jim Dine

This is from the Red Emma’s website:

We were dismayed this afternoon to find our sound cabinet at 2640 broken open, with most of our sound system missing. About $2000 worth of gear was taken, almost all of which we had bought with money borrowed from our own (meager) personal finances in order to help get the space off the ground. We used this equipment for most of the events we do at the space, from talks to concerts to film screenings, and until we can replace it, we’re pretty much screwed. We’re trying to raise money to replace the stolen equipment – any support you can offer is greatly appreciated, and will help us get community events running smoothly and audibly at 2640 that much more quickly.

UPDATE: We think (fingers crossed) that some of the costlier items, like the mixing board, will be covered by our insurance. We’re really grateful for the tremendous amount of support we’ve received – emotional and financial – and we’re hoping to be able to use whatever money we have left over after replacing all the gear, if any, to make the 2640 space more secure.
