Ex-Vivian Girls Drummer Now Ex-Best Coast Drummer

Ali Koehler, the former Vivian Girls drummer who left that band last year to join Best Coast, has now parted ways with Best Coast. On her Twitter last night, in what I have to assume is some sort of subliminal dig, Koehler posted, “Cat’s outta the bag, I’m not in Best Coast anymore.” And when someone asked her why, she responded, “Not my choice, sorry if you’re disappointed.” Later, she also wrote that she’d be back to making music soon. So if you’re in a retro-fuzzpop band and you need a drummer, you now know who to call. Hipster Runoff, as you’d imagine, has already weighed in.
