Considering that "punk rock" doesn't really mean the same thing it used to, perhaps it's better to describe the music of Broncho as lean, mean, speedy, pissy, loud rock songs that clock in around two minutes apiece. The Oklahoma band, fronted by Starlight Mints keyboardist Ryan Lindsey, has a solid full-length, Can't Get Past the Lips, and a marvelous pop single, "Try Me Out Sometime," under their collective belts. There's an amphetamine tilt to everything they do, a greasy, yelpy, jackknife sound that probably contains eight of the 10 reasons why you started listening to rock 'n' roll in the first place. Lovers of fuzzy-guitar garage rock have plenty of shows to choose from tonight; Broncho's the under-horse (as it were) but fully deserve to be in the running—give 'em a fair shake. NED LANNAMANN
