The ten best concerts this weekend: 11/30-12/2
8. BRONCHO @ MOE'S ORIGINAL BBQ | SAT, 12/1/12
Broncho is a band that, besides having a name that will subliminally resonant with locals for its phonentic proximity to a certain sports franchise, instantly recalls its Ford/Carter-era forebears from the first few ragged chords. Even those with a relatively undiscerning ear will have little difficulty pinpointing the act's influences. There's nothing new here to be sure, but there doesn't have to be if it's done well. Suffice to say, this Oklahoma-based outfit instills its songs with exactly the same sort of primal energy and rowdy obnoxiousness that made all those groups fun in the first place. Prime music for blowing off some steam on a Saturday night.
