I Think Tit Pig Would Appreciate the Irony

Posted by on Mon, Jan 3, 2011 at 12:05 PM

So, let me explain how the hype cycle for a band breaks down here at the Stranger. Here's how it works:

First, you name your band Tit Pig—easy to remember, but messy to Google. Then, you get a little write-up on the Line Out about the name, the male-on-male-fisting t-shirts, and the difficulty of finding the band anywhere online.

Then, you get a couple of redundant/self-canceling little write-ups about how impossible it is to Google the band or find them online and how no one in the local media is covering them (urm).

Then, you get a lengthy live review which includes an apology for the prior redundant and increasingly untrue gripes vis a vis media/web presence.

Now you're famous. Like THE LASHES FAMOUS. Your band is on the internet, media coverage is frenzied, the drummer is so overrun with bears that he can barely reach his hi-hats. Right?!

Well, yes, except that we forgot to list their show tomorrow night at the Comet in the Stranger or on our website (the latter will be updated today). And just like that, you're impossible to Google again. Sorry, boys.

So, anyway, tomorrow at the Comet (now also with Same Sex Dictator!):

I would love read a review of the new Same-Sex Dictator LP from you, Brian.

Also, the one Youtube clip I've seen of Monogamy Party seems promising. If you're into Karp/Big Biz and the like, I would definitely recommend getting there in time for them.

also, I never paid that much attention to the flyer because we're not listed on it, but does the bear on the right have a Better Business Bureau tattoo? that's be pretty deep if he did.

@4/9 I was going to say that they'd have to battle Cold Lake for that title, but as of this posting, Tit Pig have a respectable lead.
