Troy Johnson leaving Citybeat

Posted by the man himself:

Goodbye.

Sometimes it’s time. After 5 years plus a bunch of minutes, I am leaving CityBeat. There’s no blood on the office walls. Just sweat stains on an office chair. I love this paper lifestyle and the people in it. But it’s time to put down the demo CD and untunnel the vision. Effective Oct. 29, I will become the Senior Editor at RIVIERA magazine.

Seriously, thanks.

There is now an opening for part-time music editor at a great paper. Email davidr@sdcitybeat.com if you’re that person.

Wow. Between Fox Rox and Citybeat, it’s pretty clear that Troy Johnson has been the most influential music journalist and critic in San Diego for a good while now. My band was lucky to benefit from Troy’s good press early in our life, and we’ve always been appreciative of it. And we’re not alone in that. San Diego’s music scene has benefited immensely from Troy’s efforts over the years. His presence will be missed.
