Avid local-music blog readers already know that we in the Twin Cities have quite the collection of resources at our fingertips. Between sites like Minneapolis Fucking Rocks, Switchblade Comb, Culture Bully, and More Cowbell, nary a show announcement or news tidbit gets by the rabid bloggers, who are eager to be the first to post each new scoop. Founded by power blogger/Twitterer/message-board hound Kyle Matteson, More Cowbell often leads the pack in finding breaking news, making it a must-read source for local music. The blog team, including omnipresent showgoer Paul Hirte, one of the site's most active contributors, will celebrate their five-year anniversary with a solid lineup at the Turf Club. Alt-country troubadours Romantica will headline, with sets by the Evening Rig and newcomers the Absent Arch (pictured).
