Square Pig in a Round Hole-June 24, 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!

The Seattle area is experiencing a major solar-energy spill this weekend. You may find it necessary to retreat to a dark room and apply cold beer. Loud music is recommended. Here are a few good band names to get you started:

Cuddle Magic

Sometimes a cat on your lap or a big hug really does make it all better.

God and Vanilla

Implies that chocolate is not merely the food of the gods, but their equal.


A nonexistent position because every cat is in charge of itself. I imagine it’s similar with every member of a supergroup, which it turns out this is.

Sinister Six

In which it is demonstrated that the line between rock band and comic book teamup (hero or villain) is extremely fine.

Space Otter

Two things I like that would seem to have nothing to do with each other except through otterlike play with “odyssey” and “outer.”
