Monday September 19th @ 9:00pm.

This will be the second show in Salem for Vancouver BC pop/punk band Hot Panda. They played with City of Pieces, earlier this year. Hot Panda definitely has a Pixies thing going on, but not hit-you-over-the-head with it type of thing. I mean, if you were a musician anywhere near the late 80s early 90s and didn’t get some Pixies on you, I’d have to wonder about you. But of course, they’re more than that. Sometimes they’re real fuzzy, almost Velvet Undergroundesque and other times they’re pretty straightforward pop music. And you know what? You know what? I like all those things. Because besides those things, they’re their own thing too. They must have liked Salem, because they’re coming back to town. Let’s show them that we like them too, eh? (That’s Canada talk.) JUST ADDED: Salem’s Songs for Alice. Free – Donations for the bands. The Space Concert Club.
