Yesterday, Federal authorities arrested 16 people in 10 states and "executed more than 32 other search warrants across the United States as part of the investigation into attacks by Anonymous against the PayPal online payment service in December."

Reports the New York Post:

In Brooklyn, at loft apartments at 255 McKibbin St. in Bushwick, a superintendent named José said he walked FBI agents up to search apartment 510, a now-vacant unit that a month ago was abruptly vacated by two men and two women. Several of those former residents belonged to a rock band called "Broken Glow."

Inside the apartment, the FBI found only empty beer bottles and very dirty old clothes before leaving empty-handed, José said.

Whitney Laurence, a 26-year-old neighbor, said of the former residents, "The way they left was really sketchy."

"They left their furniture out in the hall, and all these things you'd think people would want to take with them," Laurence said. "They were just kind of a young rock band, pretty cool people, but they definitely moved out pretty quickly.

A little digging provides some details:

...Rebel Spaceships, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Empire. During the battle, Rebel spies managed to steal secret plans to the Empire's ultimate weapon, the DEATH STAR, an armored space station with enough power to destroy an entire planet. Pursued by the Empires sinister agents, Princess Leia races home aboard her starship, custodian of the stolen plans that can save her people and restore freedom too the galaxy....

"Garrett" is Broken Glow guitarist and singer Garrett Deming. On his Facebook page, Deming describes his political views as "Utilitarian Left-Minded Independent" who is an assistant manager at Greene Grape Provisions as well as "Singer/Guitarist, 2008 to present, Brooklyn, New York, Broken Glow -- with Paul Burba, Andrew Brunetti, Brenner Eugenides. We rock face... yeah."

Drummer Paul Burba's FB info reveals that he works at a Brooklyn Starbucks (2005 - Present), and offers that Broken Glow's sound is "rip your flesh off/ melt your face rock music."

Lead guitar player Brenner Eugenides "studied Music Recording at Hartford Conservatory," class of 2006, and "Works at Broken Glow Recording," while bassist Andrew Brunetti reveals little more than his affinity for the Yankees, Pantera, and Borat.

So, rock fans, fans of rock bands containing hackers, hackers who like to rock -- without further ado, Broken Glow:







Assuming the group is not in FBI custody, Broken Glow's next scheduled show is Friday, August 5th at the High Noon Saloon in Norwich, Connecticut.
