Monday Mixteen: 7/16/18

Monday Mixteen Template 20180716

There’s a lot that The Ghost doesn’t like about the summer: the heat, the wasps, the heat… did I mention I don’t like the heat?  One part of summer that The Ghost does like, however, is Free Week at Granada Theater.  For the course of about four days, the venue will host great local and Texas bands without charging a cover.  Sure, you can pay $5 to guarantee entry (and get a complimentary beer on the house), or even spend $20 on a reserved seat, but all that’s optional.  In reality, you don’t have to pay a dime to get in and see some great bands.  Besides, that saves money for other things… like adult beverages.

The Ghost felt moved by Granada’s “free” spirited ways, and created this playlist as a nod to their free week.  Yes, this playlist doesn’t cost you any money to listen to, I realize that.  What you may not have known, however, is that you can get every track off of this playlist free of charge.  That’s right.  Every one of these tracks can be downloaded absolutely free of charge.  The Ghost will add a hyperlink to each artist that will direct you to the free music.  Well, except for the final track, which is being hosted right here on this page during free week.

Of course, The Ghost does recommended supporting these artists financially.  Through most of the sites, you can donate to the artists.  And then there’s The Ghost’s favorite method of supporting artists: seeing them live.  So listen, download if you feel compelled to do so, and support local music!

  • Monday Mixteen: 1/21/19 To celebrate the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday today, I felt it should be something that was incorporated in today’s Monday Mixteen.  The Ghost’s first instinct was to do another acrostic playlist, with the song titles spelling out his name (minus the Jr. part).  While I kept with that theme, I felt it was not [...]
  • The Ghost’s Top 101 of 2018: #5... Now that we’ve made it into the Top 50, I suppose The Ghost should add a little commentary for each track.  Fine, I can do that, especially since I only have to do that for ten songs.  Yes, it’s an unusually short playlist today.  That’s because I’ve saved the remaining Top 40 for Sunday afternoon.  [...]

Another day, another reveal of countdown songs.  Yesterday, you saw #101-71.  #70 is something of a rebel.  It’s one of one two songs in the countdown that is currently unavailable on Spotify.  You can take that up with Starside R&D on January 5, when they perform at Double-Wide along with Kid Fight and Sandovall.  So [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 12/3/18 It’s that time of year when the days get shorter and shorter.  While the daylight hours may be lessening, the holiday season makes it feel more eventful and often stressful.  Simply put, there’s more to do with shorter days.  The Ghost understands that time is at a premium.  Today’s Monday Mixteen is the shortest one [...]
