Sunday Spotify 16: Christmas 2016

IMG_8232

As we speak, Santa is probably en route through America, giving toys to all the good boys and girls across the land. Mr. Claus is really good at delivering goods with his reindeer and elf friends, but he’s not much of a playlist maker. So while Santa is doing his thing, The Ghost will continue […]

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: 4/10/...

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 […]

Bowie

I went to bed last night, thinking some idiot hacked David Bowie’s account, spreading a false rumor regarding his death.  I woke up to the painful truth that the news was hoax; David Bowie was no longer with us.  Like so many of you, this news hit me in the heart.  I cannot think of […]

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. […]

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 […]

The Monkees + The Polyphonic Spree

Ever since the 7th grade, The Monkees have been one of my all time favorite bands.  For years, they’ve been unfairly labelled as a Beatles ripoff.  To be fair, the concept of the band may have been carefully orchestrated, but there’s no denying the quality of The Monkees’ output.  I could go on and on […]

Last month, I wrote an article about some of the young talent in the metroplex.  One artist mentioned in that article was Camille Schuh, who has not played many shows as of late.  I’m glad to report that she has announced a show for August 13th at Klyde Warren Park, along with Houston based singer-songwriter […]

The Power Trio: Weekend of 6/19-6/21

The Power Trio: Weekend of 6/19-6/21

First of all, I hope you’ve been making good use of the calendar on this site.  I extensively research venue websites, band websites, and Facebook invites in order to provide you a comprehensive list of quality local shows.  It would be exhausting for me to write about each and every show.  Still, some shows are […]
