Episode 328: Ryan Lindsey (of Broncho)
A lifelong Oklahoman, Ryan Lindsey is a happy Tulsa resident, these days. Half of Broncho resides in the Sooner State’s second largest city. The other two are a two hour drive away in Norman, the college town where the band got its start. It’s a Tulsa warehouse, however, that the band truly calls home. Before Broncho moved in, the spot was used to manufacturer hot tubs, and left some nasty chemicals in the air after it closed up shop. These days, the spot serves as a practice space/studio/venue/sound stage for the group’s various creative pursuits. And both Tulsa and the indie rock community at large are better for it. After nine years, the band has developed into a force to be reckoned with, releasing Bad Behavior, one of 2018’s best indie records.Lindsey sat down before a soundcheck to discuss staying in Tulsa, the life cycle of a band and how to embrace the political without alienated half your audience.
