Obituary For CityBeat

1citybeaten.jpgThe current issue of Pasadena Weekly includes a lovely farewell piece for their sister-paper, the recently deceased Los Angeles CityBeat. The story touches on the birth, life, and death of the paper, and gives a long list of some of the surviving relatives, the journalists that were part of the CityBeat family over the years. From Kevin Uhrich:

In its day, LA CityBeat came to be identified as one of the city’s top publications for news, with in-depth stories on terrorism, the environment, the drug trade and police abuse, interviews with the likes of Hunter S. Thompson, comedian Lewis Black and author/historian/social critic Gore Vidal, and coverage of the arts, especially in its relentlessly comprehensive attention to LA’s burgeoning club and music scene.
