Today's Local Music: The Brothers Comatose

Jonah Podbereski

Only half of the name of the band you’re hearing is accurate. Two members of The Brothers Comatose are actually brothers. But they are not comatose. In fact, they’re known for providing audience members with chopsticks, so they can add to the percussion section. And they toss alligators into the crowd – inflatable ones. Still, that’s hardly comatose. 
The Brothers Comatose are one of the many bands from the Bay Area and beyond who’ll be at Golden Gate Park on Sunday, October 6th as part of this year’s extensive, and free, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival.
