Last weekend, I checked out this band called Ohbijou. It was really out of a chance as I was with some people and we ended up at the venue. When I heard the band name from a friend, I was like what?? It sounded like a jumble of vowels, very similar to my mumbling (if you ever meet me in person, you’ll know).
Then the band hit the stage and I saw a big “OH” in lights. Then it hit me. OH-bijou. It stuck and now I clearly remember the name. If you have a messed up name, it’s good to figure out ways to help people remember it, especially if they’ve had a few beer at a club.
Even if you don’t have a messed up name, having people remember who you are is pretty key. The chances of that drunk going home and googling/youtubing your band relies on his/her ability to know what to look for. Make it easy for drunkie to do so.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnxHBCSpo2I&feature=player_embedded]
