The Duke Spirit plays for free tonight at The Hammer Museum | Photo via their MySpace profile

Last night in a MySpace bulletin, recently cut LA Times Buzz Bands writer, Kevin Bronson gave an update. "Because I have been laid off by the Los Angeles Times, the Buzz Bands column in this Thursday's newspaper will be the final installment [yet to be posted online], after almost 6 years. My first column appeared in October 2002, and there have been more than 250 installments of Buzz Bands in print since then. Thanks to all the musicians and fans that helped make Buzz Bands great."

In March, his devoted Buzz Bands blog was folded into The Guide's Soundboard blog. Two readers commented on LAist earlier this week that wherever Bronson goes, his devoted audience will follow.
