Ticket Giveaway: Mobley at The Grotto


Austin act Mobley is a definite breath of musical fresh air.  Sure, there are comparisons to be made, particularly with The Weeknd.  The main reason for such comparisons, however, is that both are acts that give a new twist to R&B, a genre that seems to have been in a rut since the 2000’s began.  It’s part 90’s style R&B, part indie, and all intelligent yet fun.

Mobley has been quite busy this year, having released the excellent Some Other Country EP, along with several singles, most notably “Swoon”.  You can catch the video for that song below.  I feel certain he’ll be playing that song Sunday when he performs at The Grotto along with Squanto and Sam of the Universe.

What, you wanna go to the show for free?  That can be arranged.  Here’s what you need to do.  Watch the video below for “Swoon”.  I think that as you watch the video, it will remind you of a certain music video by Radiohead.  The first person to Talk to the Ghost and name the Radiohead video (hint: the song is off of OK Computer) wins the tickets.  Good luck!

  • Monday Mixteen 10/30/17: Part II 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 [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 10/2/17 Back in my youth, Bryan Adams recorded a song called “Kids Wanna Rock.”  Question the messenger if you will, but Mr. Adams certainly understood the youth of that time period.  The Ghost has noticed that, lately, many of the kids could not care less about rocking out.  It seems these young whippersnappers would rather dance [...]
