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. Some of these you may have heard announced on KNON’s Tuesday Morning Blend show when I was a guest host. Others are just now being revealed.

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: 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 [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 7/8/19 I once received advice on the Monday Mixteen that it’s good to have a theme for the playlist.  Most of the time, I try to heed that advice.  In recent playlists, I have focused on musical genres (such as country), promoting events (like my Acoustiganza), or promoting shows happening on a given weekend.  To be [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 7/1/19 So you all know that July 4th is Independence Day, which marks the anniversary of the U.S. declaring itself its own country.  I bet you didn’t know, however, that July 4th is National Country Music Day.  It seems appropriate, as I’m not sure there’s a musical style that’s as distinctively American is Country.  In honor [...]
