Tuesday To-Do: Ryan Bingham & the Dead Horses

Posted By on Tue, Mar 15, 2011 at 5:13 AM


9 p.m., Revolution. $20.

Yes, his song "The Weary Kind" (from "Crazy Heart") won him a Golden Globe and an Oscar last year. It's a designation that will follow him around for the rest of his life. Heck, we even ran it as a caption to his picture in the print edition. But Bingham's modern take on faithful Americana leans hard toward the worn and dirt-tanned country sounds of his native Texas. If the music itself was a person, it probably wouldn't give a damn about an Oscar. Like his forebears in Steve Earle and Guy Clark, authenticity is something he's never had a problem with. And it's hard to knock a guy whose music is still as honest and roots-rooted as it was when he was sleeping in his van on tour.

Check it out: "Bread and Water" (live at Austin City Limits, 2008)

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
