Last night, I had nearly completed my list of songs that would make up today’s Spotify Sixteen.  As usual, I had planned a mix of current songs, discussion on upcoming events, and the like to discuss.  I went to bed, ready to finalize this playlist upon waking up in the morning. Then I woke up […]

Sunday Spotify Sixteen Squared: Part ...

I suppose I can no longer say it’s a Sunday Spotify Sixteen, being Monday and all.  Still, I wanted to share the remainder of these playlists with you.  I’ll admit, these playlists were ordered alphabetically by artist.  Normally, The Ghost prefers to order the songs in such a way that there’s an ebb and flow […]

Sunday Spotify Sixteen: 3/20/2016

So first, let me apologize for the vanishing blog posts last week.  While those posts have forever disappeared into an interweb black hole, there should be no further issues with this and future posts. Also, I’m trying to get some cool stuff up and going this week.  I have some awesome post ideas, plus the […]

The Full List of Ghosty Winners

The 1st Annual Ghosty Awards

First of all, I have so many thank you’s to give, as there are so many people who helped make last night something very special.  Thanks to the entire staff at The Underpass for being gracious and wonderful hosts, and for making sure everything went smoothly.  Obviously, I have to thank the musicians.  Camille Schuh, […]

There’s a Boss Riot Goin’...

OK, so I think my love for Rude King is pretty well documented.  They were the first local ska act that I became a fan of, and I’d argue that their presence in Dallas has been the foundation for all the wonderful happenings in the ska community in the past few years. Apparently, however, many […]

No Spotify or Soundcloud this week.  This is just a playlist of songs I’ve uploaded to WordPress.  All the acts are nominees for this year’s Ghosty Awards, which will be held Sunday, November 22nd at The Underpass.  I swear, I really will be releasing details on performers soon.  In the meantime, give these sixteen songs […]

I tried this about a month ago, with limited success.  This time, I’ve changed things up a bit.  No longer will I be asking you to select songs and write about them.  I’ll do the writing, and I’m even selecting the candidates for which songs will be on the playlist.  I sorted through eighty of […]

Sunday Spotify Sixteen: Summer Summar...

Labor Day weekend is often viewed as the end of the summer season.  It seemed fitting to take this as a moment to reflect on some of my favorite releases of the Summer of 2015.  And since it’s Labor Day weekend, I thought I’d save myself a little labor by leaving off the commentary. Have […]

The Ghosty Awards: or If I Was King o...

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 […]

Ghost of Blind Lemon Sampler

Right before Hands Across Deep Ellum, I decided to make a CD to give out as a way of promoting both the blog and many of the artists that I like.  I wanted to thank everyone who contributed to this CD, of which I only had the time to make ten.  All ten copies have […]
