Coming straight off of their co-headlining show with Surfer Blood at The Music Box last night, The Drums hit the Amoeba Hollywood stage to share their particular blend of ‘50’s bubblegum pop and ‘80’s synth-punk with the record store masses.
The Drums’ North American co-headlining tour comes on the heels of the announcement that guitarist Adam Kessler left the band. On September 16th, The Drums announced the departure on their Official Website: “There have been some questions as to recent events and we are sorry to say that Adam has left The Drums. Jonny, Jacob and Connor are devastated and are keeping to themselves and with friends at this time. The band is currently on the road in America. Thank you for all of the support, it means a lot.” The Drums have been playing their U.S. dates with stand-in guitarist and long-time friend of the band, Tom Haslow.
If you missed out on last night’s show at The Music Box, or you just want to check out what all the fuss is about, join The Drums for what is sure to be an energetic and dance-inducing romp in the Amoeba spotlight.
