YOU BRED RAPTORS?: Egghead rockers Eplileptic Peat (real name Peter Rains/eight-string bass) and Zach Schmidlein (drums), who named themselves after a line in Jurassic Park.
SOUND:Brainy, mellifluous, and a little twisted instrumentals “Our name is a question―the band is an inquiry, not a declarative statement,” says Peat. “I want people to like us but not know why.”
BEST OF THE SUBWAY: Freak shows are welcome. Peat was sure they’d be laughed out of their MUNY audition. “I know we’re one of the weirder bands. We wear masks and play toy pianos! But we didn’t hold back and we nailed it.”
