Sunday Spotify Sixteen Squared: 4/10/...

sundayspotify16squared

So, I had this genius idea.  I wanted to do sixteen of my Sunday Spotify Sixteen playlist in one day.  Each playlist would encompass one year of the 21st century, ranging from 2001 to the unfinished year of 2016.  And for the record, the year 2000 is still part of the 20th century.  But, I […]

March Musical Madness: The Final Four

We’ve narrowed it down from 32 of the best local acts down to the “Final Four”, so to speak.  It comes down to two battles, both of which will represent a different part of the metroplex area. The first battle is between one of the most established bands in the Dallas music scene and one […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

Thanks to those who took the time to vote for the songs on this week’s playlist.  There were some interesting surprises as to who you chose, though more importantly, you showed that there were no significant glitches in the Google Forms for voting.  What does that mean, you ask?  That means come Monday morning, voting […]

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 […]

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 […]

My apologies for the lack of posts last week.  Life obligations (translation: job) have not left me with enough time or energy to properly blog.  I’m hoping this week will be a better return to Ghostly form for yours truly.  Until then, here’s another sixteen songs for you.  I mean, you do like songs, right?
