October is Scissors For Lefty Month at popolio pop quiz.  They’re a little known band out of San Francisco made up of members from two families.

If you haven’t heard of them, their song “Got Your Moments” was featured on Rob’s Party Mix, the digitally released soundtrack of the little known J.J. Abrams film, Cloverfield.

We’re featuring each of the SFL guys individually on a weekly basis. Second up is Bryan’s brother and bass player for the outfit, Steve.  Collectively, the Garza brothers have been very forthcoming with their pop quizes and we appreciate that.
