There’s a New Sheriff in Town

Today, for the first time since March 2001, the Press has a new Music Editor. Me. John Nova Lomax leaves some mighty big Crocs to fill, but luckily he’s not going far – just the other side of the deadline fence as the Press’ newest staff writer. I should also add that as of right now, I am looking for new freelance writers. Please get in touch at [email protected].

The music section hardly exists in a vacuum, so this changeover is a perfect time to get some feedback from you, the readers. After the jump, I came up with a few questions I hope you can help me answer. Bear in mind I’m talking about both the print music section and online, i.e. Houstoned Rocks.

What are we doing well? Not so well?

Which parts of the section are most useful to you readers? Which parts do you just skip over?

What should we be covering that we’re not? What are we covering that we might as well leave alone?

What are some artists, bands and local music landmarks – venues, blogs, whatever - you’d like to see us write about?

Please leave your answers in the comments, and thanks – Chris Gray
