In the comments about today’s LA Times article on the local blog scene, Oren pointed to an interesting point over at Coolfer:
Isn’t it ironic that Alec [Hanley Bemis’] article on blog power [for the current issue of LA Weekly] will be read in a city that has a surprisingly low per-capita rate of music blogs? For whatever reason, Los Angeles is behind the curve. I can’t explain it, and locals I’ve asked can’t explain it.
Granted, there is music content here at B.la and at Tony Pierce‘s blog, but three other websites that I check out for the local scene include LA-Underground, Losanjealous, and LAist.
And then you have the much-discussed Cobrasnake, who posts almost daily updates on the local hipster scene.
