Casbah Tuesday: Don't Miss Ryan Bingham

Tuesday night there's a show at the Casbah that I highly recommend checking out. It was a late addition to the anniversary month shows but is no less worthy. The show features four performances all worthy of checking out. The show will likely start at 9 pm so don't be late.

Gray Ghosts will be performing their second show ever, and features members of Kite Flying Society, The Ex-Friends and more. Also on the slate, Swim Party is performing and we know how much SD:DialedIn loves and supports those guys. Pyles can't stop talking about The New Archaic- he said they're all young and under 20, and apparently the guitarist is amazing and tours with The Adolescents. Rounding out the bill is Ryan Bingham & The Dead Horses, a Lost Highway artist.

From the press release:
Ryan Bingham is an American alt-country singer and songwriter. Raised in rural Texas, where years of hardscrabble ranch work and competitions on the rodeo circuit would eventually surface in the dusty riffs of his country-styled debut, Mescalito. Living alone since his mid-teens, Bingham shuttled back and forth between Southwestern border towns and relatives' homes, often sleeping in his truck after nightly rodeo gigs. It was during those treks that he began entertaining friends with the guitar, an instrument he'd learned at the age of 17 from a mariachi neighbor. You can hear the inspiration of Bob Dylan, Marshall Tucker, and Bob Willis in Ryan's music.

You know I'll be there, hope to see you there, too.
