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, they played San Francisco Gay Pride in June 2007.

We’re featuring each of the SFL guys individually on a weekly basis. This week Bryan’s and Steve’s uncle, Robby, is up.  He’s the guitar player for the band.  He’s a man of fewer words than his nephews, but is just as interesting.  We like variety.  Enjoy.

1. Underground OR Mainstream? Both!  Although, it’s always great to see an Underground band make the big-time.
