In August, Ghost of Blind Lemon turns eleven years old. It’s not as monumental as ten, but it’s still worth celebrating, right? So today, I announce to you a special show celebrating eleven years of Ghostness. It shall take place at Double-Wide, and here are the acts that shall take the stage: Sunbuzzed I knew […]

Monday Mixteen: 7/2/18

You know, it’s been awhile since The Ghost put on a show.  The 11 year anniversary of the blog is coming soon, and The Ghost “might” make a concert announcement tomorrow.  To get you hyped for the announcement, I have curated a playlist featuring sixteen acts that have previously performed as part of Ghost of […]

Hmmm… seems that the calendar could use a little updating.  The Ghost will work on that this weekend.  Really.  Right now, there are more pressing priorities, such as determining what the best shows to see are this weekend.  There are more selections in the calendar (which still needs updating), but these are The Ghost’s three […]

GOBL Radio: June 2018 Highlights

Blue Light Bold June 2018 GOBL

You kids today have it so easy. You got your podcasts that you can listen to at whatever moment your heart desires. When I was your age, we only had radio shows, and if you didn’t listen to it when it came on, you’d miss it forever. Oh, and we had to walk uphill for […]

Monday Mixteen: 6/25/18

A follower of the blog suggested that I do more theme based playlist. I suspect what that individual had in mind was playlists based on either genre or mood. The problem is that I tend to gravitate towards highly eclectic playlists. From time to time, I will do a playlist with a strong theme. Today […]

The weekend is almost upon us, so it’s time to bring on The Threekend. You can find more cool local music options on this site’s calendar, but here, The Ghost will highlight his top three picks.  Note: although these are my top choices, these aren’t ranked in any specific order.  Heck, it’s challenging enough to […]

OK, so I’m a bit late in posting this on a Monday.  I do sort of have an excuse.  Yesterday, since The Ghost was lacking inspiration, I decided to make this an all request edition of the Monday Mixteen.  So really, it’s everyone else’s fault for not getting requests to me sooner, right?  That’s my […]

Again, The Ghost reminds you that The Threekend is only a partial listing of the great shows happening this weekend.  Check out the Ghost of Blind Lemon Calendar for a more thorough examination of shows happening this weekend.  This segment does, however, spotlight three of the best shows over the course of this weekend.  Here […]

New Music: Jessie Frye, “Faded ...

Working with Deep Ellum Radio is slowly expanding my musical knowledge of what lies beyond the Texas borders.  One recent discovery that I’ve enjoyed is Timecop1983, whose sounds evoke the best parts of 80’s synth-pop (one of my favorite eras of music).  You can only imagine how excited The Ghost was to learn that Jessie […]

The Threekend: 6/8/18

Welcome to a new feature on the blog, The Threekend.  Goofy title?  Absolutely!  But it’s catchy in that goofy sort of way, so perhaps it’ll stick in your head.  The concept of The Threekend is quite simple: I recommend the three shows over the weekend that are the most significant/interesting/fun/you get the idea.  I write […]
