NXNE part II: Bands I’m Judging By Their Names

Yesterday’s post was about a bunch of bands playing NXNE that I’m already familiar with. The lists below are mostly if artists I don’t know, but that doesn’t mean I have anything against them!

Let me be clear, I’m not judging their music or artistic merit based on their names, I’m simply judging their names. I mean we all know there are plenty if band name tropes and trends, but I’m seeing ampersands an awful lot in these listings and hoLY WUT THERE’S AN ALL CAPS BAND FOR ALMOST EVERY LETTER OF THE ALPHABET. And I’m not even gonna delve into “The” bands because I would get carpal tunnel from typing T-H-E so many times.

So again, I’m not trying to be snarky or too-cool or anything, just having a lil fun, like watching people try to go down the up escalators at the NXNE HQ, before telling them there are stairs behind the door. Extra shouts out to the bands who managed to make it on to multiple lists!
