Ten for Your Attention This Thursday:...

bethjames

Back in the days when Dallas Observer used to have music editors, people would often suggest that I apply for the position.  They would say that my perspective on the music scene and my writing skills would be just what the DO needed.  And without fail, I would accept the compliment, but never tried for […]

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 […]

See, I can writes good. Now on with the songs… You may have noticed the Calliope Musicals song “Echo and […]

A DEAF Playlist

This isn’t a deaf playlist as in a playlist for those who can’t hear.  After all, that’d be kind of pointless.  It’s also not deaf in the 80’s hip-hop sense of the word, although I do think this playlist is pretty def.  Word to your mother. No, I mean DEAF as in Deep Ellum Arts […]

Let the March Musical Madness Begin!

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 […]

If you merely look at Nicholas Altobelli‘s discography on Spotify or iTunes, you might think that the performer released his first album in 2013. Nope. Not even close. I first learned of Nicholas’ music back in 2008, at a point when Ghost of Blind Lemon was still a young pup in the world of blogging. […]
