LA Weekly Names New Music Editor

LA Weekly has finally named its new music editor. Ben Westhoff, a New York freelancer for The Village Voice, Pitchfork and Spin among other pubs, and an author of two books, one on Southern hip-hop and the other on New York dive bars, has been tapped for the job. Westhoff got his start at the Riverfront Times–which, incidentally, is the same paper LA Weekly music editor once-removed, Randall Roberts came out of.

Westhoff starts his new gig July 12. He replaces Gustavo Turner, who, among other triumphs, helped the paper land Henry Rollins as a weekly columnist, but decided to return to writing full time.
