Catching more fever

Dengue Fever's Chhom Nimol takes a breather from singing at the FCC in Nov 2011
Try and catch Dengue Fever, the music band that is not the debilitating tropical disease, when they return to Phnom Penh at the end of this month. The FCC is their main venue, both in the capital and in Siem Reap. The Phnom Penh gig is on Friday 31 May, tickets cost $12 and it will be a reprise of their November 2011 gig at the same venue. Which was a stormer by the way. The next evening they will be at the FCC in Siem Reap. They also play another local gig and then are off to Vietnam. If you haven't heard of the band, under what rock have you been living for the past few years. The Los Angeles-based rock group, with Khmer singer Chhom Nimol out front, have been releasing albums of critically-acclaimed songs for a decade now, as well as aligning themselves with charitable projects here such as Wildlife Alliance and Cambodian Living Arts. On 5 June they will also be playing in Phnom Penh at Memory! an international film heritage festival at a venue to be decided. Find out more about the band here. And get a ticket!
