Often times, there are more awards to give out than time to give awards at a ceremony. Such is the case for The Ghosty Awards.

For any acts who have won an award, you should come down to Three Links tonight to pick up your award. It’s worth noting that some acts listed here “might” win additional awards tonight. Not saying who, but don’t think that just because you’re listed here means that will be your only award.

Besides, EVERYONE should be coming out to Three Links tonight. The crew at Just DIY Promotions helped me curate this a fabulous lineup of music, featuring The Delzells, Andrew Delaney, Chris J Norwood, and Pool Lights, and it’s hosted by the one and only Veronica Young (Hungover With V). Cover is a mere $5, and the ceremony benefits Foundation45, a cause dear to The Ghost’s heart. Good times, good music, and a good cause. What more can you ask for?

  • Monday Mixteen: 11/6/17 I hope everyone has enjoyed this weekend.  It marks one of my favorite weekends of the year.  Why is that?  Simple: one hour of extra sleep.  Yes, The Ghost does love his sleep.  And I recall some British guy once saying something about sleeping perchance to dream, or something to that effect.  So to celebrate [...]
  • Monday Mixteen 10/30/17: Part II The Ghost has always thought it to be rather cliched to do songs about ghosts, ghouls, goblins, and the like for Halloween.  Instead of using the obvious imagery, I like to use a different comparison for this holiday.  Halloween is a time for dressing up as a different creature.  The closest musical kin to dressing [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 10/23/17 Do not let the cover photo give you the wrong idea.  It’s not that The Ghost is only about the benjamins.  No, the blog is truly a labor of love.  Having said that, there are many endeavors that I would like to take on, and some extra money would help me better pursue those endeavors.  [...]
