The Ghost has not felt well the past few days.  As a result, I will not be adding commentary on this week’s playlist.  In fact, this playlist is sort of a “comfort music” style playlist, featuring newer and older songs that just feel comfortable and good to my ears.  Not to worry, however, as The […]

Words Wall of Orange, “Sweetest Blue” Orange seems to be a popular color in local music.  First there was simply The Orange, and now Wall of Orange has taken a shining to the same hue.  I can’t say I know much about the band, but I can say that “Sweetest Blue” is an intriguing song. […]

Sorry on the delay, but I do have your results on the latest round of the March Musical Madness, and this has been a crazy, unpredictable tournament so far. We’re now down to eight acts, and I’m attaching their Bandcamp widgets so you can sample before you vote. Have to have an informed electorate, you […]

Back in 2007-2008 or so, Hunter Hawk began a cool feature on what I believe was the then Guide Live website (forgive my bad memory, as I’ve slept since then). He did a March Madness style battle of local bands. I loved the concept, and I regretted that he did not make it a yearly […]

Last week, I received an email from Jeff Gage of the Dallas Observer, letting me know it was time to send in nominations for this year’s Dallas Observer Music Awards.  I’ve been given the privilege to be on the nominating committee since 2008, and making these decisions is never easy. One factor that makes this […]

A little fact about me: I love lists.  More to the point, I love a good countdown.  Maybe it’s all those weekends of listening to Casey Kasem count down the Top 40 hits in the nation, week after week.  Whatever it is, I love making numbered lists.  Combine that with the fact that it’s hard […]

I couldn’t narrow it down to three shows this week.  I counted eighteen shows listed on my calendar this weekend, showing just how strong our scene really is.  So here are my four favorite shows of this weekend. Ishi/Wrestlers/Sealion/Blue, The Misfit (Tonight At Trees) Red Bull Sound Select always puts on solid lineups, but I […]
