Where The Ghost Will Be Tonight: 8/26...

salim nourallah 2

The month began with the 10 year anniversary of the blog.  Yesterday was the birthday of the man behind The Ghost.  The celebration of said birthday, however, is going down tonight.  So where will The Ghost be, you ask?  The answer is more complex than you might think. The beginning of the night is straight […]

The Ghost 101 Countdown: The Bottom H...

Today’s reveal on the countdown will show songs #60-51. Instead of just displaying those ten songs, however, it seemed like a good time to do a full on recap. So here you go, #101 all the way to #51. That completes the bottom half of the countdown. Alright, so technically it’s a little less than […]

So, if you missed it yesterday, The Ghost has started his year end countdown.  Unlike previous years, this is the first year that Texas songs (and “Sorta Texas” songs) are eligible to chart on the countdown.  Also, you’ve probably noticed that in past countdowns, I limit each artist to one song.  This year, I’m making […]

Rei Clone, “Ready to Die” I may have liked Rei Clone the first time I heard them with their self-titled EP, but Wet gives me a whole new level of appreciation for the band.  Their Bandcamp page uses the labels punk and shoegaze, but I feel the phrase “organized chaos” is the best way to describe […]

This Is How I’m Celebrating Tur...

Cake 9

Nine years ago, I was thinking of how the local music scene was in such a low place.  Trees, Gypsy Tea Room, and Club Clearview had shut down, and Deep Ellum was a ghost town.  It was definitely a far cry from the early 2000’s, where venues (and the streets) were packed.  It made me […]

Yeah, yeah, I know.  I haven’t written enough lately.  I plan to change that this week.  In the meantime, maybe this sixteen songs will hold you over until the next post. Clifffs, “I’m Your Ghost” John Dufilho not only gave yours truly a shout-out from stage after playing this song Friday at Three Links, but […]

Video Wednesday (VW): 7/13/16

The Ghost is back with more videos.  Still no Volkswagen sponsorship for Video Wednesday, but at least I have videos. I even have a video premiere here.  It’s the brand new video for Midnight County‘s “By My Side”.  The video was recorded live at Mother Truckers, and combines live video footage with the story of […]

So, have you check out my list of the Best Albums of 2016 (so far)?  I’d encourage you to do so now if you haven’t already.  Today’s Sunday Spotify 16 is something of an extension to that list.  The Ghost has included alternate favorite choices from certain albums and EPs.  In addition, I’m mentioning several […]

Where the Ghost Will Be Tonight: 7/2/...

Yes, I realize some of you are out of town, and others are too busy at the lake/grill/family event/etc. to bother with local music.  For those who will not be out and about tonight, let me just say that you are SO missing out.  While The Ghost will normally single out one event to attend […]

First off, let me apologize for the lack of playlist last Sunday, along with forgetting to share the playlist widget the previous week (that has been corrected).  The Ghost is back on track now, with another fabulous sixteen songs for you.  You ready?  Good… Charley Crockett, “In the Night” Because beginning a playlist with Mr. […]
