This Saturday, the local music community lost a great soul.  Droo D’Anna lost his battle with COVID and transcended into the afterworld.  Not only was he the master mind behind Droo’s Peace Crush, he hosted many an open mic, helping foster new talent within the metroplex.  He was a kind soul who radiated joy, and […]

Yeah, I just haven’t felt like writing much lately.  Guess you could say that I’ve been a man (or Ghost) of few words lately. So, I figured I’d just stay on that path of few words.  One word, to be exact.  Not a single song title here longer than a word.  And no words from […]

Keep Deep Ellum Rocking

Deep Ellum Petition

Deep Ellum is, first and foremost, and entertainment district.  The majority of the business in the neighborhood are centered around events regarding shopping, dining, and most importantly, music.  When I hear the words “Deep Ellum”, music venues are the first businesses to come to mind.  Trees.  Three Links.  Dada.  Adair’s.  The Free Man.  These are […]

Keepin’ it real.  I haven’t felt inspired to write lately.  I’ve had ideas after ideas for articles, playlist, etc. yet have lacked the motivation to post anything.  The Monday Mixteen I’m sharing below was supposed to be shared last week.  It was a review of sixteen of my favorite tracks released in the first quarter […]

Normally during this week, many Dallasites would be making the trek down to Austin for SXSW week.  Yes, the festival is still happening, but only as an online event.  That means Austin likely has no packed hotels and motels, no ridiculous amount of traffic and foot traffic, and no venues with people packed in like […]

Unless if you’ve been living under a rock. you have probably heard about the two COVID related mandates issued by Governor Abbott.  These mandates, which go into effect Wednesday, deal with business capacity, and the other with masks in public. The first part allows all business to operate at 100% capacity.  I will admit that […]

Foreword from The Ghost: Last year, I reached out to Noelle Hampton of The Belle Sounds, asking for recommendations for albums and singles to buy on Bandcamp Friday. She sent me a list of recommendations that due to time issues, I did not get to publish. Ms. Hampton sent me a new list of recommendations […]

It’s been a little over a year since America learned of its first COVID death.  The following year has been hard for pretty much everyone on both a personal and financial note.  Some industries, however, have found their livelihoods more impacted by the pandemic than others.  Those in the music and artistic communities have been […]

Last week was indeed a long week.  While The Ghost was without heat, neither power nor water services were disrupted.  That means that through space heaters, firewood, and cats, I made it through the week alright.  Plus, I had lots of spare time.  In fact, I took the opportunity to do some painting classes, where […]
