David Malitz

David Malitz covers music for the Weekend, Going Out Guide and Style sections of The Washington Post. He was an intern for the Going Out Guide while a journalism major at University of Maryland and started working for washingtonpost.com in May 2004. Since then he has offered in-depth coverage of the local music scene, interviewed the likes of Brian Wilson and Aretha Franklin, reviewed concerts by Paul McCartney and Paul Simon, blogged from SXSW Festival in Austin, written live coverage for Virgin Mobile Festival, and profiled everyone from black metal group Liturgy to platinum-selling rapper Wiz Khalifa to Sean Lennon. He was also lucky (or unlucky) enough to be at 9:30 Club on a night when Courtney Love completely lost her mind (even for her) and reviewed that trainwreck to end all trainwrecks.
