August Brown

Writer

August Brown has covered pop music and nightlife at the Los Angeles Times since 2005. He has written extensively on electronic dance music, hip-hop, K-Pop, noise music and many other genres, and can reliably locate the best dive bar within a one-mile radius of any point in L.A. County. Once, as a wiseacre adolescent, he was almost cast opposite Burt Reynolds in an early '90s buddy-cop comedy, and really wishes that had panned out.
