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!

Particularly fitting as we approach the longest night of the year. The light hasn’t quit, it’s just on temporary leave.
I like the pairing of something adorable with the suggestion of wrongness. They get extra points for calling their EP “Menacing Marsupial.”
Beloved host of a children’s show about commerce.
Literally true but just try saying it three times fast.
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.
