Swedish post-rock band pg.lost landed in Taiwan last night for their Taipei performance this evening only to discover that a guitar and amplifiers had been sent to Xi’an, China, by mistake.

Around 11 pm yesterday, the event organizer, PutsSound, posted an “S.O.S.” on Facebook informing the public of the incident and asking for help to provide the missing equipment so that the band’s performance this evening could be held as planned.

Their request was answered within one hour of the post, with a Fender guitar and amplifiers provided by several Taiwanese bands.

Pg.lost will perform at 8 pm at The Wall in Taipei. This is their first stop on their Asia tour in support of their fourth album, which will be released on Sept.16. The band will then continue their tour in Hong Kong and China, and wrap up in Tokyo on Sept. 18.

This is the band's third time performing in Taiwan.
