Drummer: Zack Olsen
Band: Slow Gherkin
Venue:The Crepe Place, Santa Cruz December 16th
After several years of not taking the stage, Slow Gherkin played a secret show in their hometown of Santa Cruz to mark the beginning a new year and a new decade. Drummer Zack Olsen's style mixes ska with crazy drum fills. Despite it being a secret show, it sold out quickly and fans crowded watching outside on the patio looking inside. Nice Craviotto kit too.
When not designing web pages, plonking her rare guitars or banging on her eBay drums, Leslie Hampton haunts northern California clubs and house concerts photographing musicians.
