Square Pig in a Round Hole-June 17, 2017

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!

Contrary to this article in The Hard Times, I don’t think we’ll be running out of band names any time soon. I have been blogging about five names every week for going on seven years and the supply seems undiminished. I have faith in the continued creativity and silliness of musicians. For example:

Adult Mom

Maybe doesn’t make as good TV as the teen variety, but deserving of all credit. Adulting is hard. Momming is harder.

Free Cake for Every Creature

Oh, how sweet!

*Shouldn’t we offer healthier options?* *Why do you hate pie lovers?* *Only if it has lemon filling.* *I hate lemon filling!*

You just can’t please some creatures.

Runaway Satellite

So long, earthbound losers! We’re off to explore the solar system!

Stranded by Choice

Love the double meaning. Are we stuck because of too many options, or intentionally moving to a deserted island?

Young and in the Way

That twist on a lowly preposition takes us from a sappy song lyric right into the life (and kitchen) that follows happily-ever-after. See above, Adult Mom.
