Let’s Help Catch The Chump Who Stole Vijay Iyer’s Watch


Here we have a video described simply as “Audience member steals my watch off of the piano, July 23, 2009.” The victim is Vijay Iyer, whose outstanding piano-trio record Historicity triumphed in our just-completed, fourth-annual Voice Jazz Critics’ Poll. Which makes this blatant theft even more galling. Iyer first announced this violation (which occurred at the Stone) via his Twitter, though he’s since noted that it cost $20 and he’s not looking to get anyone killed or anything. Still, there’s a principle here. Anyone with any info, just post it on the Internet, which’ll take care of the rest.
