Drummer Ashley Brus has left psychedelic garage rockers The Kabbs.
Brus played her last show with the group—who released the "Get on My Way" single in April—at The Office in North Park on Sept. 11 and has since moved on to concentrate on a different instrument, the violin. Brian Clinebell, The Kabbs' vocalist, says in an email that the band's in the process of finding someone new to get behind the kit.
"We are going to try out a new drummer, hopefully soon, and work on new songs with the new drummer," he says.
Clinebell says that the band's goal is to get back to playing shows by January. Despite the setback, they're committed to keeping The Kabbs going.
"I hope we continue playing," he says. "I love playing shows and have more songs to put together with Kyle [Whatley, guitar] and Ryan [Combs, bass].
"So, the future band seems good, it's just down to putting in work."
Sean Martin, who plays guitar for The Heavy Guilt and The Midnight Pine, will leave San Diego soon. He says he'll be heading to Northern California for "non-musical reasons," though he intends to continue playing music after relocating. Before he makes the move, however, he'll record a new album with The Midnight Pine, who'll play at Tin Can Ale House on Thursday, Sept. 26, with Joanie Mendenhall and Tide Pools.
