Grrrl in print

A new book just out is Cambodian Grrrl: Self-Publishing in Phnom Penh by writer Anne Elizabeth Moore, who came to Cambodia to share her expertise and knowledge with the capital's young women at the Harpswell Foundation and ended up teaching them how to make zines. It's the first in a series of short essay collections to be published by Microcosm Publishing.
Saturday will see Srey Thy and the Cambodian Space Project back in the country, after wowing China and the USA, and off to the rural countryside in Prey Veng to play a concert at the home village of their female lead singer. I can't make it but I know how wonderful these occasions are, so those who are going are in for a treat. Fortunately, CSP will be back in Phnom Penh and onstage at Equinox on Saturday 30 April from 8pm, so everyone will have the opportunity for joining in the fun once more. For those who like the CSP style of Cambodian rock and pop music, also check out those copy-cats from the States, Dengue Fever, who have a new album just out called Cannibal Courtship. You can listen to it for free here. I expect the Stateside pretenders will be back on these shores sometime soon trying to sell a few copies and doing their charitable good works (wink wink).

Not yet, its only just been published and may take a while to find its way over to Phnom Penh. If I hear its on sale, I'll let you know.
