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!
It’s another New Year’s Eve! Although I might not make it all the way to midnight, even I am going out tonight. As we stumble toward the finish line of another year, I want to thank my tens of readers for joining the celebration of band names, and especially thank the bands for continuing to come up with names worth celebrating. In a stressful year like this one, we need all the little joys we can get. Let’s close it out with these gems:
I feel better knowing benevolent ETs are looking out for us, don’t you?
Food of choice for anemic whales.
Designing and fabricating their own entertainment. Maybe from mushrooms.
It’s a big party night! Have fun, but go easy on the cheap bubbly.
Cry me a tsunami.
