They like you

The Like Me's with a hanger-on, in strict height order: LtoR: Laura, Loren, Monique, Helena
They could hardly have found a more appreciative audience for their first-ever gig in Cambodia. The Like Me's, the all-girl group from California who are here to make their mark on the Cambodian public with their music and their girl-power, were the darlings of the Northbridge international school this afternoon. The majority of the audience were of school age and they loved it. The children, parents, friends and other interested parties enjoyed a fun time with a dj, beat boys, the school band and of course the four girls with their finely-honed rock, sang in English and Khmer. Laura demonstrated her powerful vocals on Like Me, was more mellow on Refugee, Music Love and Pka Proheam Rik Popreay before raising the roof and getting everyone on the dancefloor for my fave Sva Rom Monkiss. A really fun gig for everyone present, from the youngest, like 5-year old Amy who will be one helluva dancer when she grows up, to the oldest, which was probably me. Keep your eyes peeled for these girls, and your earlobes pinned back, they are going places.
