More Cowbell 5th Anniversary Party

While the site has been around since 2002, it wasn’t a dedicated music blog until April of 2004, which means More Cowbell is coming up on it’s 5th Anniversary next month. To celebrate we’re throwing a fun party at the Turf Club in St. Paul. The Absent Arch put out one of our favorite albums of 2008, and The Evening Rig’s new album is guaranteed to be one of our favorites of 2009. Add to that headliners Romantica, who put out one of our favorite albums of 2007 and are hard at work on the follow up.
