One of the reasons I rarely interview bands is because I prefer to assess the possibilities of enjoying their live shows based on their music, not their childhoods. Another reason is because once you start talking to them, there's always a chance you may ask some inane question like, "So, how did you come up with your band name?"

I mention this because after reading last week's column, in which I referred to "the wonderfully named Spliff Moth," someone asked me, "Am I missing a joke? What's Spliff Moth mean?"

And that caused this to happen:

Setlist: "Hi! I don't usually ask bands this, but I really love your name. Can you tell me how you came up with it?"

Spliff Moth: "We were smoking a spliff on the porch at our house and a moth flew up to our little gathering. We offered it the spliff and it inhaled and then burst into a thousand lightning bolts. We named the band after its precious little wizard heart. All praise the mystic Spliff Moth."

See? Sometimes it's better not to know.

Anyway, hardcore psychpunks Ex Cult are playing with Dirty Pillows and the previously wonderfully named Spliff Moth at Siren's Song, 8 p.m., $5.
