Square Pig in a Round Hole-November 18, 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!

As we approach Thanksgiving week, I’m grateful for the continued vitality of the literary genre Band Names. Every week since November 6, 2010, I’ve had at least five things to smile about, and I don’t see that changing any time soon. Keep up the good work!

In the Company of Serpents

“Why’d it have to be snakes?” Also pleased to discover it’s a two-piece, my personal favorite size of band.

Leftover Pie

This one might be better suited to the weekend after Thanksgiving. There is comfort in knowing the goodness continues.

Nekro Drunkz

I’m enjoying the humorously metal spelling, as well as the dark-magic way of expressing how wasted a group is.

Porch Cat

Nothing more chill than a cat on its own porch. I always offer greetings.


Blessed are the days off. (As the instigator of the fiction and music project St Rage, I’m happy to give props to a fellow saint.)
