Music lovers seeking to snap out of the winter doldrums would be hard-pressed to find a more alluring show than Sunday’s loud triple bill at the Riot Room. All three bands specialize in unpretentious rock ’n’ roll. Broncho, a fun-loving punk band from Tulsa, is capable of sending audiences into a carefree frenzy with a sound that compares favorably to Japandroids and the Cloud Nothings. Two exceptional acts open the show. Skating Polly is a pair of precocious riot grrrl-influenced children based in Oklahoma City. The Empty Spaces were one of the most notable breakout bands on the Kansas City scene in 2012.
