Square Pig in a Round Hole-November 4, 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!

Don’t forget: tonight is that great night when you can stay out till 2 am and still be home by 1. If you don’t set your clock back, you run the risk of showing up an hour early for church tomorrow! Side benefit: it’s a great opportunity to join the choir. Meanwhile, it’s always a good time for band names:

Dark Matter Noise

We can’t see it but the signal gets through loud and clear.

Fuzz Mutt

So much to like: two monosyllables with a repeated vowel; two four-letter words each with a double consonant; the way it makes perfect sense as a lovable mixed-breed pet or as distortion-heavy mixed-genre music.


Whatever limberness I had is being lost to age.

Microwave Surveillance

One of the great jokes of our national nightmare lives on.


When the party’s so good, everyone ends the night in jail.
