Sorry on the delay, but I do have your results on the latest round of the March Musical Madness, and this has been a crazy, unpredictable tournament so far. We’re now down to eight acts, and I’m attaching their Bandcamp widgets so you can sample before you vote. Have to have an informed electorate, you […]

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 […]

Last week, I received an email from Jeff Gage of the Dallas Observer, letting me know it was time to send in nominations for this year’s Dallas Observer Music Awards.  I’ve been given the privilege to be on the nominating committee since 2008, and making these decisions is never easy. One factor that makes this […]

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 […]

In last week’s article on Meia, I stated that she would not be playing tonight at Plano’s Local Public House.  But she is playing tonight.  I was wrong.  It happens sometimes. Hopefully, in the very near future, you’ll be hearing more from me on Deep Ellum Radio.  That means my show Ghost of Blind Lemon […]

Music Monday: A Review of the Year Thus Far

One of the greatest joys for me as a blogger is the ability to bring exposure to lesser known local acts.  That was a major focus of GOBL in the Blogspot days, and will continue to be a priority on this site.  Every Monday, I plan to find at least one musical act to bring […]
