This Fort Lauderdale-based act usually plays small Broward and Palm Beach County venues like the Bubble and Propaganda, so this outing below the Miami-Dade County line is rare. Although the band is technically a three-piece, Sweet Bronco's driving force is curly-haired Chris Horgan, who still plays often, under the same moniker, with just an acoustic guitar and a harmonica. With the solo bedroom-project origins of the project, the songs are cozy and private-sounding, with a gently electrified, vaguely folkish indie sound. Slow, melancholic intros often lead to slightly droning passages that eventually resolve in guitar crescendoes that, if not outright joyful, can sure sound uplifting. With the fully fleshed-out live setup, synths and all, Sweet Bronco's minor-key outings can have almost a post-punky flair that will surely go down well with the Vagabond's Friday-night crowd.
