A DEAF Playlist

This isn’t a deaf playlist as in a playlist for those who can’t hear.  After all, that’d be kind of pointless.  It’s also not deaf in the 80’s hip-hop sense of the word, although I do think this playlist is pretty def.  Word to your mother.

No, I mean DEAF as in Deep Ellum Arts Festival, which starts today at 11:00 am.  You know, in case you don’t have to work and stuff.  There’s going to be plenty of great art.  And music.  Lots of great music too.  This playlist isn’t a list of everyone playing, but rather a sampling of thirty of the strongest musical highlights of the weekend.  Forgive me for not taking the time to say something deep and insightful about each act.  I’m even being so lazy as to not list the set times.  After all, you can go to the Deep Ellum Arts Festival website for all that info.

I will remind you, however, to visit the Sons of Hermann Hall stages Saturday from noon until 3:45, as I’ll be emceeing both the Ballroom as well as the Bowling Alley.  I even featured Luna Royale and Sarah Michelle Gutierrez in the playlist, both of which are cool artists that I’ll be getting to introduce.

But enough of that.  Let’s listen to some music.

  • Monday Mixteen: 8/5/19 The theme for today’s Monday Mixteen is pretty straight forward: all sixteen tracks, as of the time of the publication of this playlist, have less than 1,000 streams.  Not only that, none of these artists have a song with over 1,000 streams. This time, however, I have a measurable goal for the playlist.  By next [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 7/22/19 Politics are an area that I’ve always been reluctant to discuss on the blog.  After all, this is a music blog, not a political one.  With the level of vitriol being spread in our country right now, however, I feel that I cannot continue to stay silent.  The level of racism and hate being spouted [...]
