Square Pig in a Round Hole-December 23, 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!

Christmas, Winter Solstice, and Star Wars all teach the same thing: darkness will not overcome the light. To quote Rose in The Last Jedi, “It’s not always about fighting what you hate; it’s about saving what you love.” Music is always part of that. May we continue to sing out, and to name our bands as well as these:

Age of Fiction

The storytellers will rise at last.

Meanderthals

Just us cave people out for a directionless stroll.

Not Til Tomorrow

Answer to “When can we hang our stockings?” We’ll open presents the day after that.

Splitting Silence

When it’s so quiet, your own thoughts are deafening.

Steel Beans

Structural legumes: no amount of soaking will soften them enough to eat, but they do hold their shape.
