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 […]

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 […]

Wandering Through a Paisley Maze


Since The Ghost is returning to posting on the blog, how would you like to hear about a brand new psychedelic festival hitting Dallas?  You would?  Well, you’re in luck.  My pal Olan Mijana from Monoculture has created Paisley Maze, a festival bound to not only lure in all the psych rock fans in the […]

First of all, thank you for all the wonderful response to my open letter to Dallas.  It’s obvious that The Ghost is not the only one frustrated with the status of things in our music community.  My hope is that this begins a dialog with musicians, venue owners, booking agents, and music fans. In 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. […]

Simply put, The Ghost has not had the words in him lately.  Too many stresses, not enough time.  There are songs, stories, and bits of news that I have not been able to share, and for that, I apologize.  I hope to start to resume writing at a greater volume soon.  I even hope to […]

Where The Ghost Will Be This Evening:...


If you’re needing the perfect way to begin your Saturday evening, might I suggest you come out early to attend today’s Deep Ellum Outdoor Market?  Several local vendors will be on hand selling merchandise, including Deep Ellum Trading Company, Essie Photography, Pies & Thing, and The Steampunk Ballroom, just to name a few.  You can […]

I hope this post finds you all well and safe.  To say that last week was trying was an understatement.  My heart goes out to the family, friends, and police officers who lost someone last week.  I also regret that last night’s Acoustiganza was cut short due to threats against the Dallas Police Department headquarters […]

Video Wednesday (VW): 6/1/16


I suppose that it’s time to finally do another edition of Video Wednesdays, or VW as I call it.  It’s been so long since my last VW post that I hope Volkswagen doesn’t decide to pull their GOBL sponsorship.  Oh wait, they never agreed to be my sponsor.  By the way, if anyone from Volkswagen […]
