Square Pig in a Round Hole-July 1, 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!

July already? I’ve been looking forward to it; I finally get a vacation, and Your Mother Should Know is playing not once but twice, and weekend shows for a change. If I live through that, I have a birthday at the end of the month, then start my next trip around the sun. I’m counting on the band names to keep showing up every week, like these did:

Christopher Hill and the Stardust Crush

Classic X and the Y structure perfected with a retro-classy vibe. I imagine them playing at the Platonic ideal of a 1950s prom.

The Hula Bees

Bees communicate by dancing. The hula tells a story. So far, so good. But how do you get the little grass skirts on them without getting stung?

Moon Tooth

That smile lights up the night. Just overlook the craters.

Sea of Misinformation

The story of 2017. Trying not to drown.

Shark Legs

Like that bicycle the fish doesn’t have, some things are rare or don’t exist for a reason.
