New band names usually bubble up spontaneously. For instance, my friend Andrew sent me a text in which he inadvertently thumbed the numeral 9 instead of the @ symbol. His next text said, “Disregard the 9.” Thus a new band name was born.

If you’d like to play, use the hashtag #NewBandName when posting or tweeting your contribution.
