Not enough hours in the day
Tonight will see the Java Cafe open mic session at 7pm with music and stand-up comedian Kitty Kavanagh doing their thang, whilst Cambodia will be facing up to Macau at 6pm in the AFC Challenge Cup in China, needing at least a draw to go through to the group stage.
The Like Me's at Northbridge (4pm) on Saturday and then Khmer Arts Ensemble at Chaktomuk Theatre on Sunday at 3pm, performing their classic Pamina Devi, as part of the national arts festival. In between Sarah O'Brien, of Winds of Angkor fame, will be in town before heading up to Siem Reap to join bosbaPANH in the Tribute to the Legends concerts on 25 and 26 Feb at the Bayon, with the irrepressible Em Theay also involved amongst a host of others including The Like Me's. The French Cultural Center's dance shows are on the same nights as the Legend concerts, though they'll take place at Chenla Theatre in the city, whilst the Hun Sen Cup quarter-finals will take place that same weekend at the Olympic Stadium. And guess what, Meta House are hosting another dance performance from Yon Davy, Chantha and Rady on Friday 25 Feb under the banner People in Buildings.
Looking ahead to early March and the Cambodian Space Project will be back in town after their adventures in Australia, for a one-off gig at Equinox on 4 March before they jet off again to the States. The night before, those all-girl Like Me's are at Parkway, whilst 5 March sees the kids from the garbage dump-based Centre for Children's Happiness School, singing their tiny hearts out at Gasolina in a fund-raiser.
