Grimes' gear has been stolen following a show last night (August 30) at the HMV Ritz in Manchester.

Writing on Twitter, the electronic artist, real name Claire Boucher, said:

hey manchester! all the grimes gear was stolen last night - if you know anything about this get at me!


Grimes is set to play the Electric Picnic festival in Stradbally, Ireland tomorrow (September 1) as well as Heaven in London on September 5 and 6. She is also due to appear at Bestival on the Isle of Wight on September 9.

An outlandish video for her track 'Genesis' was recently unveiled. Scroll down to watch it.

The Californian desert-set video is said to be inspired by Hieronymus Bosch's painting The Seven Deadly Sins and the Four Last Things as well as by fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier and Jamie Hewlett's Tank Girl creation. A still from the video is pictured to the right.

Grimes – who has made the Polaris Music Prize shortlist with her acclaimed 2012 album 'Visions' – spoke to NME recently about the jailing of three members of Russian punk collective Pussy Riot.

She said that the whole situation made her feel "depressed", adding: "I went to school in Russia for a while, so I'm very familiar with it. It's funny to me because I think a lot of people are just realising now how fucked up Russia is, and like, I'm not surprised at all that that situation is happening. I think it's something that happens more than people know."
