Square Pig in a Round Hole-September 29, 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!

It looks like I’m heading into a very busy October, filled with book and music events (and a vacation, thank goodness). I’ll try not to let any of that stem the flow of band names. Let’s close out September with these fine examples:

Glass Souls

Strong yet fragile. Transparent yet hidden. Solid yet recyclable.

Moonlight Remedy

Moonlight as part of some mystical healing ritual. Or: the remedy for moonlight is curtains.


For all your discount funeral supply needs.


Other people are real! Maybe if they’re extra plural we’ll finally behold them as they are.

Strange Moon

Otherworldly by definition yet right there.

Shameless Self-Promotion: On Saturday, October 6 at 2:00 p.m., I will be reading and signing my new fantasy novel Daughter of Magic at The Neverending Bookshop. Joining me will be Mikko Azul, author of The Staff of Fire and Bone. Come say hi!
