After months of searching, we've finally signed up a new music editor. Pete Freedman, who is currently the arts and entertainment editor at the Colorado Springs Independent, will step into the position February 4. Freedman met up with the Observer staff last week, and while in town made a point to hit up Deep Ellum and Lower Greenville. Before he even inked the job papers, he was seeing shows at Club Dada. We're confident this means he's ready to jump into our scene.
Freedman will be blogging like crazy here in DC-9, and we're excited. He's been writing music, culture and film (without screenings no less!) in Colorado Springs. We just read his features on Helio Sequence, John Waters and Schoolyard Heroes. Enough of the past. We're ready for him to take the music section helm. -- Chelsea Ide
