I squeezed in a listen of this Edmonton band’s latest CD How Come I’m Dead?  before Brotheridge bogarted it to review. He gave it an okay but not great 3 out of 5 Dog rating.

The one listen I had, I liked. I learned later that the band’s initial inspiration for the disc was a chance thrift store discovery of a book about an old Vancouver coroner.

Tonight, Hot Panda is playing O’Hanlon’s Pub. Here’s video of the band performing at Pop Montreal last October.
