BRONCHO, OUTSIDE, MIDNIGHT RERUNS, SKATING POLLY

- Event Details
Fronted by Ryan Lindsey of The Starlight Mints, Broncho’s debut full-length release Can’t Get Past The Lips is
an instant classic: late 70’s inspired punk filtered through a
garage-rock ethic with more hooks than one can easily digest in one
sitting- 10 songs of pure bliss clocking in at barely 20 minutes. Listen
to the whole album at http://broncho.bandcamp.com/album/cant-get-past-the-lips and we think you’ll agree…
"Perhaps the best debut album of 2011 came by way of BRONCHO, a garage-punk quartet from Tulsa/Norman, Okla. Frontman Ryan Lindsey is better known as the keyboardist for the Starlight Mints, but this side project has been touring the Midwest since early 2010. Can’t Get Past the Lips hit stores this August, and “Try Me Out Sometime” was an instant standout. It’s not a complex song, by any means, and the simplicityis fantastic because the execution is so strong. Three chords are plenty enough backdrop for Lindsey to yelp out the hooks. Watch the excellent music video, in which the band barges into unsuspecting, unlikely venues — stores, major intersections, a college classroom — and performs increasingly disastrous versions of the song before darting out. BRONCHO has never played a show outside a narrow corridor from Austin to Chicago, so coast-dwellers will have to cross their fingers for that to change soon." NPR The Year in Garage Rock 2011
Outside are Milwaukee's new(ish) supergroup featuring Kelsey Kaufmann(Centipedes), George Ananchev(Absolutely), and Adam Baas. Fantastic.
"Formed in late 2010, Milwaukee’s Midnight Reruns have quickly become
familiar faces on the local club scene, though their profile is due to
get a healthy boost any day now. The band’s jangly, Replacements-esque
guitar pop is instantly likable, and made even better with a charming,
practiced sloppiness that keeps things remarkably fresh. Toss in the
woozy, too-cool-for-school vocals from singer Graham Hunt, and the
Reruns seem destined for more than just local weekday bills." - A.V.
SKATING POLLY(Oklahoma City)
"We are Peyton and Kelli. We sound kind of like Babes in Toyland, Bikini
Kill, Beat Happening, Regina Spektor, Kimya Dawson and Nirvana. We have
some loud punk sounding songs and some quiet songs too."- Facebook
On tour with Broncho, Skating Polly is two girls, ages 12 and 17, who rip through riot girl punk with a fervor and grasp beyond their years. This should be awesome, and yeah, their parents will be here.
