It occurred to me that I've never really done a list of local blogs (other than the blog roll) and websites that I follow to get news of things going on around town. And then someone asked on my FB group that very question, and so... here we go.
There are a bunch more blogs, but I feel these are the best for local events news around town.
See Muscat's Events section

What's On Muscat
And that's it really, there's the individual websites / fb groups for various venues (or event organizers - eg Alive Events), which I get a lot of information from, and of course people are occasionally thoughtful enough to email me their events too.... If anyone else has any good event listings websites/groups/blogs then please comment below and I'll add them in.
