Naming 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!
At this dark time of year, the light of creativity is a gift. There was a lot to be found in the club listings this week; these five shone brightest:
A thrilling and dangerous romance.
Classic X and the Y structure in perfect balance.
It’s a lot less threatening spelled this way.
Cleanup? Meltdown? Fight? Breakneck romance? The setting is provided. Imagine the story.
For that time of month when you’re dead.
