New Addition to LAist

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood. welcomes Jason Toney as a contributor.

Jason claims to buy way too much music, fails to attend nearly enough
music shows, and spends too much of his paycheck on drinks around
town. But Jason is really all about this town. Since no one ever comes to the Valley where he lives, he is often in Hollywood, Silver Lake, and the Westside and can, on the rare occasion, be convinced to go to the beach. He just won't like it there. He prefers dark rooms with plush chairs, a sick DJ, pretty people, and an endless supply of Ketel One.

Jason has blogged at since January of 2002 and
has been mentioned in Honey Magazine and the Washington Post. He also contributes to Pop Culture Junkies
and has written for Vibe Online.
