Music Seattle Weekly’s New Music Editor
The Stranger has learned that one of its own freelancers, Brian J. Barr, will be replacing Michaelangelo Matos as Seattle Weekly’s music editor. Barr recently wrote a strong feature on rising local rockers Band of Horses for The Stranger. Besides freelancing for this paper, he also has contributed to The Believer, Harp, and Arthur. I wish Barr well, and look forward to a long, bitter editorial rivalry with him.
