Monday Mixteen: 2/19/18

Monday Mixteen 20180219

I’ve designed this special playlist in honor of President’s Day. It’s an acrostic playlist, and here’s a little refresher from your high school English class: an acrostic poem forms a word with the first letter of each verse in the poem. Except in this case, it’s the song titles that form not a word, but […]

I hope my readers have had a restful and peaceful holiday weekend.  You’ll need that, as we have more work to be done.  By work, I mean more songs to reveal in my year end countdown.  Today, we reach the halfway mark, so it seems like the perfect time to review. The Speedlights, “After Tonight […]

Silas Nello (Feat. Jenna Clark), “Tell Me What You Need” It would be rather predictable of The Ghost to begin this playlist with a Kinsley August song.  After all, yours truly is hosting A Tale of Three Folks at Plano ArtsCenter, with Kinsley headlining the event.  The Ghost, however, does not want to be obvious […]

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 […]

The Ghost has a love-hate relationship with year-end lists. In reality, it falls mostly on the love side. There’s something exciting about reading a person’s (or publication’s) choice of best songs, albums, etc. Sometimes the lists align with one’s personal perspective, and other times, not so much. Either way, these lists serve as a time […]

Speaking of duties, […]

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 […]

I hope everyone’s been taking advantage of the calendar option on this website.  I work hard as possible to compile the most comprehensive list of quality shows in the metroplex.  I counted the list of shows for this weekend, and from today to Sunday, I have a total of 17 listed options.  That number may […]

Ticket Giveaway: Local Brews Local Gr...


My pal Nicholas Altobelli was kind enough to hook me up with a pair of tickets to give away for Saturday’s Local Brews Local Grooves show at House of Blues.  In case you haven’t heard, twenty different local breweries will be on hand whose beers you can taste.  On the groove end of things, Nicholas […]
