HowWasTheShow's 5th Anniversary Lineup Announced

It's that time of year again, folks, and time for a party that might be alternatively called my 4th annual 39th birthday (if I was still counting such things.) is excited to announce the lineup for our 5th Anniversary Party, which is scheduled to take place Saturday, June 9, 2007, at the Turf Club in St. Paul. The show will be sponsored by Radio K.

It's been five years since founder David de Young first started a blog to archive his reviews of live shows. Since then, has blossomed into a website that archives hundreds of reviews of the best local and national music to come through the Twin Cities, interviews with bands, pictures by the Cities' best up-and-coming concert photographers, and an active forum where musicheads gather to share music news and updates.

Each year the website continues to grow as a resource for music fans, and this past year we were awarded our first Minnesota Music Award for our efforts. We are still going strong and have lots of reasons to celebrate, so we gathered up the best talent this town has to offer to help us throw our 5th Anniversary bash! Here are the details: 5th Anniversary Party featuring:
