Band Name Blow Out!


We just got a fabulous new book in the YA Non-fiction section that has inspired me to new levels of genius. That may be overstating a little bit, but you can judge for yourself.

The book is The Band Name Book; an encyclopedia of band names from the ordinary to the extraordinary with articles explaining band name origins. Ever heard of Deep Banana Blackout? Fatkid Dodgeball? Blue Oyster Cult (more cowbell!!)? How about the creatively capitalized New Zealand band mOoFiSh?

Get ready, cause here's where the genius part comes in: I know you all have had those moments when you say something and the instant it leaves your mouth you know it would make a great band name. Well, now's your chance to test your band naming instincts with our Band Name Blow Out Contest. Between now and the Press Play Game Fest on March 13, during Teen Tech Week, submit your band name ideas in the comments of this blog post. Use your first name or a nickname only, then come to the Game Fest or check the blog to find out if you are the winner! An itunes gift certificate will go to the submission that a panel of librarians and teens judges to be the best! Read on for the contest rules and criteria:

* Make submissions through the blog only, please
* Use your first name or nickname when you submit
* Make sure your idea is original
* Team or partner submissions are OK, as long as you don't mind sharing
