Show Announcement: GOBL Friday the 13th Showcase

Sixty-two years ago, a young boy drowned at Camp Crystal Lake.  The camp counselors failed to save them because they were, uh, busy doing other things.  That young boy later grew into a man who would go on to terrorize others at Camp Crystal Lake, and eventually, around the world.  That young boy was… not The Ghost.  I mean, I never event went to camp as a kid, plus I’m alive (even though I’m The Ghost).

I will, however, host my first ever Friday the 13th Showcase on September, Friday 13th at The Free Man.  There’s so much good local music happening that night that it’s scary good!

The first performer, Charlie J Memphis, goes on at 10:30.  Mr. Memphis is a young blues guitarist that really knows how to wield an axe.  And by axe, I mean guitar.  He’ll play such great hits as “Shake My Bones” and “Bloody Is the Water.”

As the night sky deepens in Deep Ellum, the music continues with Hightower, who will perform tracks from their new EP, Night.  The band’s blend of pop, rock, country, and blues will keep listeners glued to the edge of their seats!  Actually, they’ll probably up on the dance floor, but you get the idea.

Finally, the evening comes to its thrilling climax with Chilldren of Indigo.  The band will perform tunes from Keepers of the Fire, but their music is not the stuff of campfire stories. Watch Chilldren of Indigo thrill the crowd with funk, soul, hip-hop, and rock. Warning: their set is not for the faint of heart!  Because, you know, their shows are a dance party and that does get the heart pumping and all.

Do you think to can handle the excitement of The Ghost’s Friday the 13th Showcase?  Get your tickets now, if you dare!

  • 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: 7/8/19 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 [...]
