A DEAF Playlist

deaf poster

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: 3/23/2020 What kind of playlist do we need at a time like this?  Should The Ghost rely on tried and true favorites, or venture into the territory of new releases and undiscovered artists?  Should the message in these songs be one of hope that we need, or the despair so many of us feel?  There is [...]
