VW (Video Wednesday): 8/24/16

vw passat

Wednesday is almost gone, and if I post this on Thursday, if becomes VT and not VW.  Do you know of any companies with the initials VT that I could bug until I get a sponsorship.  Neither do I.  That means The Ghost must get the VW post done before midnight in order to try […]

I hope this post finds you all well and safe.  To say that last week was trying was an understatement.  My heart goes out to the family, friends, and police officers who lost someone last week.  I also regret that last night’s Acoustiganza was cut short due to threats against the Dallas Police Department headquarters […]

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 […]

OK, so I’m way behind on my gift giving. I’m going to try to make it up with the following verses: Nine songwriters singing Eight moons a waving Seven times for all you’ve done Six oranges jibing I’m combining several giveaways in this one post.  However, you can only win ONE of these prizes, and […]

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, […]

If you haven’t noticed, psych rock has made a comeback.  I’m not sure that I’ve ever seen the genre stronger in my lifetime than it is now.  Bands like The Black Angels have helped breathe new life into the genre.  The Ghost has taken note, and that’s why there’s a full category in the Ghosty […]

Are you having trouble deciding who to vote for?  I mean, there’s a lot of great nominees to select from.  I should know, as I handpicked every last one of them.  Here’s a small sampling of some of this year’s nominees.  Take a listen, and feel free to vote in the Ghostys, whether it be […]

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 […]

The Halfway Mark

The Halfway Mark

Now that the end of June is upon us, this would be a good time to reflect upon the releases that have helped define 2015 so far.  I can honestly say that this year is poised to be the strongest year for local releases in about six years.  I like to do a Top 40 […]
