Devon Maloney wrote a very brave, controversial article about why she quit her job as music editor of the LA Times after four months. She brings up issues that are central to the chauvinism of music criticism, the lard-ass-ness of legacy journalism, and the privileged passion of Millenials. I would love to hear readers’ take on Devon’s story.

There’s a music critics panel at the West Hollywood Book Fair Oct. 4, at 3 p.m., featuring Lorraine Ali, Ernest Hardy, Michelle Kort, Randall Grass, and myself, and moderated by Brian Rochlin. Expect talk about the changing nature of arts journalism. If that gets boring, go have Leiber and Stoller sign their autobiography for you.
