The Ghostified Gathering

Music Festival

For a week or so, Festify was all the rage on social media. It was an app that created fictitious festival lineups based on one’s Spotify listening habits. One could create a lineup based on the most listened to artists over the course of a month, six months, or one’s entire time on Spotify. The […]

Monday Mixteen: 3/25/19

Monday Mixteen 20190325

For those not aware of Crowd Control, it’s a unique and cool Open Mic concept from Brittany Griffiths (Wavelength) and Billy Law.  The last Thursday of each month, Crowd Control hosts an open mic, and each month there is a theme.  The performers must present original material, and the performers are encouraged to tie their […]

The Ghost 101 Countdown of 2016: #10-...

VanessaPeters2016-OTG-WM-7

Did you catch yesterday’s post featuring songs #20-11?  I did a recap of all the songs from #101 all the way up to #11.  Yes, that’s right, that list goes to 11. All cheesy Spinal Tap references aside, I encourage you to look here for your recap before beginning the bottom half of the Top […]

Sunday Spotify 16: Christmas 2016

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 […]

So, last week I was kinda busy with all that Ghosty Award stuff, so there was no Sunday Spotify 16 playlist.  Many of the weeks beforehand, the playlists revolved around nominated acts.  That means this week’s Sunday Spotify 16 is the first regular playlist in a long, long time.  So let’s begin, shall we? Charley […]

Press Release: The 2nd Annual Ghosty ...

IMAG0547

The following is The Ghost’s press release for The 2nd Annual Ghosty Awards.  In an unusually rare move, The Ghost is mentioning his personal identity on the site.  The Ghost is, however, omitting the more personal details from the press release like the phone number.  It is, however, given in the actual press release that […]

Sunday Spotify 16: 11/6/16

The Ghost has not felt well the past few days.  As a result, I will not be adding commentary on this week’s playlist.  In fact, this playlist is sort of a “comfort music” style playlist, featuring newer and older songs that just feel comfortable and good to my ears.  Not to worry, however, as The […]

First of all, thank you for all the wonderful response to my open letter to Dallas.  It’s obvious that The Ghost is not the only one frustrated with the status of things in our music community.  My hope is that this begins a dialog with musicians, venue owners, booking agents, and music fans. In the […]

Bad news: today’s Ten for Your Attention is only half its length.  Good news: there’s still plenty of musical goodness, beginning with a brand new track from Cameron Matthew Ray (shown above).  It’s from his upcoming album Acoustic: Volume 1, featuring re-recorded versions of songs found on CMR as well as new songs.  Here’s an example of […]

20 Best Albums of 2016: The Half-Way ...

OK, so technically today is slightly past the halfway still.  Close enough, right?  I don’t have the time or energy to wax as poetically as these albums deserve.  Still, it’s worth noting my favorite albums and EPs thus year.  For a change, I’m allowing both Texas and “Sorta Texas” albums in the list.  One thing […]
