Tin Can Ale House booking e-mail hacked
If you’re in a band that’s booked a show or plans to book one with Tin Can Ale House, take note: Tin Can co-owner Kelsey Breunig is not stranded in London and she doesn’t need your money.
The bar’s main booking e-mail address has been hacked. “If you haven’t already seen, you will be receiving an email asking for money because I am stuck in London, or whatever crap they send you,” she wrote in a mass e-mail earlier today. “Please disregard any emails you receive from here on out. They are not from me.”
You can reach Breunig at the bar’s new e-mail address, tincanbooking AT gmail DOT com.
I received this e-mail from the hacked hotmail address early this morning (9/14):
