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!
I’m wrapping up my vacation the way I started it, with a choice selection of band names. Enjoy!
Things we worship, things we fear.
Clap your hands for this clever twist on classic X and the Y band-name structure.
This gets at the outsized sense of themselves those little birds have.
Good luck. Don’t look for it online (except maybe right here).
Dripping with backstory.
