Sounds Like San Diego: June 12

Award-winning Holy F--- headlines the Casbah

I haven't gone on a band name rant in quite some time, but the opportunity has presented itself once again. I have a lot of pet peeves when it comes to band names, but the two things that irritate me most are the single noun band names that are impossible to Google (Tennis, Girls, Drums) and obscenities. Holy F--- has been around long enough that the name is no longer shocking, but I still find it annoying every time I see it. That being said, Polaris Prize-nominated and Juno Award-winning band Holy F--- plays at the Casbah tonight, and their show is definitely one to hear. As far as the name thing goes, even the band has said on record, “It’s been pretty annoying, but it’s gotten us a lot of publicity, so we can’t complain about that." Touche.
