Monday Mixteen: 2/12/18

Monday Mixteen 20180212

The Ghost has been rather busy with Directing the Programming at Deep Ellum Radio.  As a result, the blog has been a bit neglected.  So today, to “celebrate” Valentine’s Day, I am bringing back the Monday Mixteen.  I put the word celebrate in quotes because anyone who knows me realizes that I don’t celebrate that […]

Spreading the Love: Emmeline & M...

The Ghost is bringing back a feature called Spreading the Love, but this time there’s a twist.  Instead of myself writing about an artist I feel is worthy of attention, a local musician will be writing about one of his/her local favorite artists.  It’s only appropriate that the first guest columnist is Ellen Hinton (aka […]

Monday Mixteen: New Year’s Day,...

Monday Mixteen20180101

2017 was a crazy roller coaster ride of a year for The Ghost.  I went the first two and a half months of the year without a peep of the blog due to life stresses.  After that, posts were sporadic as best.  In fact, The Ghost came close to taking an “indefinite hiatus” from the […]

The 7 Best Performances of 2017

Let me just stipulate this fact: I have been to fewer local shows in 2017 than any year since probably 1999.  This started out as a rough year for The Ghost, and as a result, there are many excellent shows that I’ve missed out on.  I cannot claim that this a thorough and comprehensive look […]

So, we have now arrived at the Top 50.  And yes, each song gets a little bit awesomer.  No, that’s not a word, and The Ghost don’t care.  This is exciting stuff, ya know?  Imma shut up now and share some songs, K? David Ramirez, “I’m Not Going Anywhere” This is the kind of song […]

No time for idle chit-chat.  Let’s just dive into these ten songs, listed alphabetically by artist, iTunes style. Andrew Holmes demonstrates a very unique vocal style on the track “England”.  It made The Ghost wonder if perhaps England wasn’t just a song title, but a former home.  His Bandcamp page says he’s from Abilene, and […]

Monday Mixteen: 10/16/17

blue cassette

Last Tuesday was World Mental Health Day, and in case you missed it, The Ghost had a bit to say on the matter.  My original intent was just to share a few songs that addressed the issue, but it soon became clear that the story was supposed to be much more than that.  As a […]

Sunday Spotify 16: 4/9/17

As you’re probably aware, Pete Freedman has clearly set the record straight on how awful the Deep Ellum Arts Festival is.  I felt it was my duty to help back up his opinion, so I designed a playlist that clearly shows the lack of talent held by those playing the festival.  I apologize for having […]

Where the Ghost Will Be Tonight: 8/6/...

Fact: The Ghost is far better at curating lineups than creating posters for shows.  If in doubt, look at the poster above.  And honestly, that’s one of my BETTER posters.  Fortunately, today’s GOBL show at Cafe Bohemia is a musical lineup, not an art exhibit. Today’s event begins at 6:30 and not 6, as Jeremiah […]

Ten for Your Attention This Tuesday: ...

So, you may have heard yesterday about a very special Bandcamp compilation released courtesy of yours truly.  It would be bad form of me to use this week’s Ten for Your Attention to publicize Return of the Lucky Thirteen.  I mean, how tacky would it be to use this opoprtunity to share the new track “Planet […]
