Broke-Ass Band Interview: Whiskerman (Tonight @ Amnesia)

If you’ve ever gone to a show in San Francisco or the East Bay and seen an excellent violinist or cellist in the band, it was probably one of the inimitable Patzner brothers. Graham, Anton, and Lewis Patzner are go-to string players for every Bay Area band that knows what’s
