Naming a band is an act of concentrated creative expression. Square Pig in a Round Hole exists to reward five favorite band names each week. Winners are (usually) listed alphabetically. Selection is wholly unscientific and subject to whim, with a bias toward wordplay, humor, and local flavor. In most cases, I won’t know anything about the bands at the time of selection. Thanks to the Seattle Times club listings for abundant source material!
The snow came and went so quickly, I’m glad I took a picture to prove it was real. It’s supposed to turn cold again next week, but at least I’ll have time to wash my thermal underwear first. For now, there’s no excuse not to go out and find a band or three. This flurry of names caught my attention:
“Um, we might need that later.” “No, man, it was only holding us back.”
Just what we need in this dark season! More kick than a lightbox or vitamin D supplements.
I’m a perennial fan of the classic X and the Y naming structure. This one makes good use of opposites and monosyllables for humor and snap.
Epic drama packed into a four-word sentence.
I can’t seem to escape post-electoral blues. This one speaks to our Divided States of America, tattered but not yet sundered.
