Sad news today as word gets out that The Locust drummer Gabe Serbian has passed. Condolences to friends and family. Certainly one of the most skilled and chaos channeling drummers in human memory. I saw them live just once but it is an insane memory that feels like a dream. It was at Park Fest at Purchase College and I think Biz Markie was the same day, wow. Of course Gabe is also known for important contributions to Cattle Decap and Dead Cross.
Today, Beltane, is his birthday…even more upsettingly.
“This world will miss Gabe as a friend, family member, musician, and artist,” says a post on the band’s official Facebook page. “He will continue to live on in so many ways and through everyone he has connected with during his time with us. May 1st is his birthday, and we hope that you can find a way to celebrate his life.”
