The announcement came as somewhat of a surprise, but it was totally a love filled and respectable one!

Rochester favorites Under The Pavillion recently announced a lineup change. Former bassist Taylor Obert has decided to pursue other photography and digital activities within the band. She explained her decision on Facebook.

She didn't have to provide any words at all, but she earned much respect (from me anyway) by sharing her thoughts.

If you're wondering what the future holds for Under The Pavillion, it appears that they have that sorted out just fine. Kevin Casey taking over as the drummer, and Adam Lien is moving to bass.

A full-length album is in the works - stay tuned!
