Stripped to the T-Bone

Previously on Ryan Bingham plays Omaha: The then-soon-to-be Oscar-nominated singer-songwriter and his backing band, the Dead Horses, played a loose, fun set that ran nearly two hours, thus rewarding the patronage of a light Sokol Underground crowd that numbered somewhere in the neighborhood of 40 heads.
