B y L e s L i e V e n t u r a You might have heard the delay- drenched, slacker-glam track "It's On" in the closing credits of a Girls episode, or the flirtatious, pop-punk cut "Try Me Out Sometime," airing in an ad for HBO Now. Or maybe you saw Broncho open up for Guided By Voices in LA last year, and you've been patiently awaiting new material since. However you first discovered the Norman, Okla- homa, four-piece, chances are good the group's blend of dream-pop, punk and garage-rock won you over. And they're ready to do it again Septem- ber 12 at the Bunkhouse. The Weekly caught up with frontman Ryan Lindsey to talk about play- ing with Billy Idol and recording a follow-up LP to 2016's Double Vanity. You're on tour while working on a new album. How do you find time for both? We were just working on it, and when I'm doing that I wish we weren't touring, because I just want to stay in that world. But it's nice to get a change. We're just kind of putting together a puzzle, I guess, and we're essentially still at the beginning. Records can either come together quickly or take a while. I hope it just happens. You've played Las Vegas a few times. What do you make of it? The first time we played there was Beauty Bar, a long time ago. Then we played Bunk- house, and then we opened for Billy Idol at Cosmo- politan. It was f*cking great. I just love Las Vegas in general, because there's so much showbiz. Every- thing's trying to be as big as possible, so seeing that version of all these different things—the most show- biz version of whatever—is, for me, a great thing. There was one trip where I was totally broke and we played a show and we just kinda cruised the whole Strip, and then we ended up just getting drinks bought for us the whole time—just meeting people, and they would just start buying us drinks. I really think you can go there with nothing and have the best time. A few of your songs have been used in TV shows and commercials. How has that helped the band? I think anytime anybody wants to use our music, it's a way somebody's going to hear it who wouldn't have otherwise. I'll get hit up by some- body that has a class project who wants to use a song, and they obviously don't have a budget or anything, and I think it makes sense for people to use it. I'll totally sign off on it … if they seem like a nice person. I can't imagine a way that someone could ask for a song and be a dick… but if they were I would probably [still] say yes (laughs).
