Jesse Sandoval: Drummer for Shins to Taco Cart Owner

James Mercer, frontman in Shins, confirmed that the keyboardist Marty Crandall and drummer Jesse Sandoval are now out of the band. Mercer, in an interview, explained why he made the sudden change, “I started to have production ideas that I wanted to do that basically required some other people. It's mainly about that. It's an aesthetic decision."

No one knows what the ex-keyboardist is up to these days, however, we do know from a blog entitled The Portland Mercury’s End Hits that it has been discovered what the ex-drummer has spent his time doing. He is opening up a taco cart in Portland, Oregon called Nuevo Mexico.

This is no joke, the report is true.
