Monday Mixteen: 7/2/18

Monday Mixteen 20180702final

You know, it’s been awhile since The Ghost put on a show.  The 11 year anniversary of the blog is coming soon, and The Ghost “might” make a concert announcement tomorrow.  To get you hyped for the announcement, I have curated a playlist featuring sixteen acts that have previously performed as part of Ghost of […]

Monday Mixteen 10/30/17: Part II

Monday Mixteen 20171030part2

The Ghost has always thought it to be rather cliched to do songs about ghosts, ghouls, goblins, and the like for Halloween.  Instead of using the obvious imagery, I like to use a different comparison for this holiday.  Halloween is a time for dressing up as a different creature.  The closest musical kin to dressing […]

Sunday Spotify 16: 10/9/16

Matt Tedder, “Down the Road” Last night, Matt Tedder proved that he knows how to put on a show.  Of course, I can’t give all the credit to Tedder.  His entire band was spot on, with drummer Matt Mabe and harmonica player Paul Harrington standing out in particular.  But if you missed it, don’t feel […]

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 […]

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 […]

Sunday Spotify Sixteen: 12/6/2015

mixtape (4)

Pentacon Six, “Christmas Is Better With You” Interesting fact: I got a lot of likes and retweets when I debuted the band’s Christmas song, but the majority of those came from OUTSIDE the Dallas/Fort Worth area.  Moral of the story: metroplex, you need to wake up and pay attention to this duo’s beautiful pop songs. […]

Sunday Spotify Sixteen: 9/19/2015

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 […]

Take Two: Handing You the Keys to the...

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 […]

Cream of the Calendar: 8/7/15

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 […]

Ticket Giveaway: Local Brews Local Gr...

My pal Nicholas Altobelli was kind enough to hook me up with a pair of tickets to give away for Saturday’s Local Brews Local Grooves show at House of Blues.  In case you haven’t heard, twenty different local breweries will be on hand whose beers you can taste.  On the groove end of things, Nicholas […]
