Broncho is an American indie rock band based in Norman, Oklahoma that formed in 2010. Churning out thoughtful, nuanced rock ‘n’ roll with an art school spirit and a punk rock heart, the band’s fourth album, Bad Behavior, finds them leaning into their strengths for their best album yet. Sometimes their nonsensical syllables capture the improvisational joy of pop music better than proper words ever could. Their standout single ‘Class Historian’ is a prime example of these catchy non-lexical vocals.

Wed Oct 23, 8.30pm; RMB150 presale. Hou Live. See event listingTickets

Oct 27: Wuthering Heights
