A Brief Note on Aqua Teen and Band Names

Last night's Aqua Teen Hunger Force live show at Park West was wildly uneven in quality—which is to be expected from a hodgepodge of scripted bits, video, and audience participation steered by two guys who make a fairly uneven animated series—but on the whole it was pretty hilarious. One of the best parts was when ATHF creator Dave Willis picked up a Carl puppet and used it to deliver a tirade against Chicago, which included a long passage in which he gave new names to local bands whose current names in his opinion do not rock sufficiently. I have to say that I'd like Wilco better if they followed Carl's advice and changed their name to Clawsplosion.
