When the City Paper and long-time music editor T. Ballard Lesemann parted ways last year, you could practically hear the feedback from a thousand amps around town. It was a horrible, ear-shattering squawk of WTFs and FUs. Of course, you can’t keep a good man down. Ballard bounced back quick enough, launching his very own online music mag, Metronome Charleston
. These days when Ballard isn’t rocking out with Doug Walters in the Fairy God Muthas or keeping time with who knows how many other bands in town, he still has his finger on the pulse of the local music scene. Updated pretty much every single day, Metronome is a rock-solid source for interviews, breaking news, live reviews, and listings. And if you’re a fan of local music, you should be visiting it regularly. Best to you, Ballard. Prost.
