Tweeps Who Love Music: Follow these Twitter accounts and increase your music IQ 

They provide insight that is often elusive or just plain overlooked by mainstream media.

The micro-blogging of Twitter is typically a conduit to a vast universe of information. That is definitely true of these music industry-related accounts. They provide much more than just 140 characters of commentary—they provide insight that is often elusive or just plain overlooked by mainstream media.

@BackstageRider: This gal founded a website of the same name and, though based out of Vancouver B.C., travels all over the Pacific Northwest in search of great live shows and interesting interview angles.

@guerrillacandy: Thought the Seattle music scene saw its demise after the grunge movement ended? Think again. There is great music coming out of the Emerald City and you’re probably missing a lot of it. Following this account is the perfect way to fix that.
