Square Pig in a Round Hole-February 17, 2018

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!

I’m too angry and sad about gun violence to come up with a lighthearted intro this week. Thankful the band names came through once again to lift weary spirits.

Are They Brothers

Worded, but not punctuated, like a question. As if someone already knows the answer.

Chance to Steal

Another sign of hope: spring training has begun.

Krunch Sauce & Kranky Nugs

Obscure bar snacks hiding the identities of musicians playing undercover.

Mostly Other People Do the Killing

Well, as long as it’s mostly other people, I guess we can sit back and enjoy the show. Ulp.

Night Lunch

I appreciate the subtle similarity of brownbagging it after dark to a spectacular space shot.
