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!
Nice weekend for Capitol Hill Block Party, if you like that sort of thing. As far as I know, none of these bands are playing it:
I like the literary vibe, and that it would work in several genres. Is this the wise one the protagonist seeks; a shadowy threat; or the noble to be overthrown?
Are these death throes or the birth of a new world?
Derision, deep-fried on a stick at the punk county fair.
Describes a figure far from the popular ideal. Also far more delicious than a brick outhouse.
Moody and dark. You can only enter alone.
Reading & Book Talk, Sunday, July 29 12:15 p.m. at Prospect UCC, 1919 E Prospect St, Seattle. I will read excerpts from my new fantasy novel Daughter of Magic and talk about how the book came to be, followed by Q&A and prize drawing. Books will be available for purchase at the event. Because the book features a teenage girl and is one of nine books by women authors to be released by Not A Pipe Publishing in 2018, The Year of Publishing Women, donations will be accepted for the Seattle chapter of Days for Girls. This non-profit organization provides durable, reusable feminine hygiene supplies to girls and women in developing countries, allowing them to attend school or work during their periods.
