Square Pig in a Round Hole-December 17, 2016

Square PigNaming 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!

I just saw a snowflake. Stop that right now! We all have stuff to do this weekend! On the assumption that it will be possible to get out, please consider these well named bands:

The Absent Light

Particularly fitting as we approach the longest night of the year. The light hasn’t quit, it’s just on temporary leave.

Bad Koala

I like the pairing of something adorable with the suggestion of wrongness. They get extra points for calling their EP “Menacing Marsupial.”

Middleman Bob

Beloved host of a children’s show about commerce.

Small Leaks Sinks Ships

Literally true but just try saying it three times fast.

Wolves in Argyle

Sure, they look stylish and civilized in their sweater vests and socks. That’s what they want you to think. Don’t get too close; keep an eye on your young.
