After being unfairly kicked to the curb by frontman James Mercer—an "aesthetic decision," whatever that means—former Shins drummer Jesse Sandoval has started a new venture: taco cart!

The only thing more Portland-centric than indie rock is a food cart, and Sandoval's will be located at 3rd and SW Stark under the name Nuevo Mexico. (I assume that is named in honor of his home state, New Mexico.) The End Hits' Burrito Review Team will be out in full force for next week's opening with all the gooey, melty details.
