The Ghostified Gathering

Music Festival

For a week or so, Festify was all the rage on social media. It was an app that created fictitious festival lineups based on one’s Spotify listening habits. One could create a lineup based on the most listened to artists over the course of a month, six months, or one’s entire time on Spotify. The […]

Monday Mixteen: 4/29/19

I had some ideas of what to cook up for today’s Monday Mixteen, but I just couldn’t figure out the right musical ingredients for the playlist.  On top of that, The Ghost just didn’t feel like serving up the dish of a carefully curated themed playlist.  So I did what people do when they’re lazy […]

This coming Saturday evening has plenty of shows worth seeing. The Bralettes and Acid Carousel will perform at The Foundry. Crooked Bones is headlining a cool show at Division Brewing that also features Posival. If you’re looking to hang in Deep Ellum, you can catch Maya Piata at Harlowe, or head over to Adair’s to […]

VW (Video Wednesday): 4/17/2019

VW Mystery Machine

Today’s edition of Video Wednesday is as easy as ABC. You don’t believe The Ghost? Follow along, and you’ll see. We start with A, which stands for Acid Carousel. The band just released a brand new single, “Eyes Glow”, as well as an accompanying video. The main character in the video is a nosy neighbor, […]

Most of my Monday Mixteen playlists have some sort of theme.  The sixteen tracks selected have a loose musical connection to them.  All of the songs are within what I would refer to as “rootsy” music.  What exactly does that mean?  To me, it means anywhere along the musical spectrum that contains Americana, country, blues, […]

Not gonna lie, The Ghost is still a little tired from hosting the Deep Ellum Radio Artists’ Court Stage yesterday.  That’s okay though, because I had a BLAST!  Thanks to all the fabulous artists that played: Jana Pochop, David Joshua, Peyton Stilling, Bryce Bangs, Maya Piata, Chris Welch & The Cicada Killers, Droo’s Peace Crush, […]

You may be aware that this weekend is the Deep Ellum Arts Festival, and that Deep Ellum Radio has its own Artist’s Court Stage this year. You might have even heard that The Ghost is curating his own day’s worth of music on said stage. So yes, this is gonna be a good year for […]

One of the bands that made an intense impact on The Ghost during the early days of blogging was Dove Hunter. There was an intensity and drama to their set that made them stand out as one of the best local bands of the time period. One track of theirs that especially hit me hard […]

For those not aware of Crowd Control, it’s a unique and cool Open Mic concept from Brittany Griffiths (Wavelength) and Billy Law.  The last Thursday of each month, Crowd Control hosts an open mic, and each month there is a theme.  The performers must present original material, and the performers are encouraged to tie their […]

Ten for Your Attention: 3/19/19

Tally Marks

These Ten for Your Attention segments can take up a lot of writing time, time that I don’t have.  I’m waxing less poetic than usual this afternoon.  It’s not because the songs don’t deserve it, but that these songs don’t deserve to go unnoticed just because The Ghost doesn’t have the time or energy to […]
