WorseProm

This coming Saturday evening has plenty of shows worth seeing. The Bralettes and Acid Carousel will perform at The Foundry. Crooked Bones is headlining a cool show at Division Brewing that also features Posival. If you’re looking to hang in Deep Ellum, you can catch Maya Piata at Harlowe, or head over to Adair’s to […]

Monday Mixteen: 1/21/19

Monday Mixteen MLK 2019

To celebrate the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday today, I felt it should be something that was incorporated in today’s Monday Mixteen.  The Ghost’s first instinct was to do another acrostic playlist, with the song titles spelling out his name (minus the Jr. part).  While I kept with that theme, I felt it was not […]

Monday Mixteen 20180114

You may notice that the songs in the below playlist are in the alternating order of the letters S & M. Yes, The Ghost realizes that this theme may be rather controversial. I could have easily shied away from it, but it seems pointless to try to hide one’s deepest desires. Several readers will find […]

The Ghost’s Top 101 of 2018: #7...

GOBL Top 101 of 2018 Pt 2

Another day, another reveal of countdown songs.  Yesterday, you saw #101-71.  #70 is something of a rebel.  It’s one of one two songs in the countdown that is currently unavailable on Spotify.  You can take that up with Starside R&D on January 5, when they perform at Double-Wide along with Kid Fight and Sandovall.  So […]

John Lennon said that life is what happens when we’re busy making plans.  All too often The Ghost’s plans have a way of getting derailed by life.  I make no promises that this sudden burst of productivity is a trend rather than a fluke.  Here’s what I will say; The Ghost has missed this.  I’ve […]

The 17 Best Releases of 2017

Two of the 17 best releases shown above

The Ghost has always avoided doing Best Albums of the Year lists.  There is something intimidating about making such lists and making certain that your words are appropriately eloquent for each of the releases.  But for the first time, The Ghost is taking on the task… sort of.  What follows is an unranked listing of […]

Let me just stipulate this fact: I have been to fewer local shows in 2017 than any year since probably 1999.  This started out as a rough year for The Ghost, and as a result, there are many excellent shows that I’ve missed out on.  I cannot claim that this a thorough and comprehensive look […]

Sometimes The Ghost wants to share music, but there’s not enough time to discuss the releases in as much detail as I’d like.  This new segment, the Mid-Week Music Dump, will appear during those times when I want to share music yet lack the time to write.  I’m keeping it simple, only songs and videos […]
