Earlier today, I received and accepted an offer to become managing editor for eMusic, the indie-label-specialist online MP3 store, in New York. I begin work there March 20, and my final day at Seattle Weekly will be Friday, March 10.

This will end my second tenure at the paper; I was calendar editor and staff writer from October 1999 to March 2001, and came back in June 2003 as music editor. The latter, especially, has been amazingly rewarding. I’ve worked with some of the best music (and other) writers around, put together a section I was consistently proud of week after week. I think the work speaks for itself. But I'm still grateful to everyone who wrote for me here, and am VERY excited to be going to New York again. More details as they happen.
