This week's program of events includes comedy, reggae and noir. In that order. The Comedy Club at Pontoon is back this Wednesday (8 May) with well-established stand-ups, American Daniel Kinno and Silky, a comic from Liverpool in England. $8 from 8.30pm. Make me laugh. On Friday (10 May) there's an unfortunately ill-timed double dose of reggae. At Meta House from 9pm, a tribute to the legendary Bob Marley will come from a new band, RNA. The Right Honourable Robert Nesta Marley is a hard act to follow. Over at The Village, Dub Addiction will be promoting the release of their new album. Like London buses, no reggae for a while and then two come along at once. Make me dance. The following night, Saturday (11 May at 9pm) and Krom are back at the Doors (near Wat Phnom) with more from their latest album and two of the best voices in the business with the Chamroeun sisters. It's free and the band are more polished with each performance. Make me enjoy. Also on Saturday night, from 7pm at Meta House, will be a screening of two films about women's football, Offside Cambodia and Football Undercover, ahead of the following week's Cambodian U-15 Girls Football Tournament in Phnom Penh. SALT Academy and the German Embassy will be combining to present the festival of women's football.
Date for your diary:
Friday 31 May at FCC Phnom Penh will see the return of Dengue Fever to these shores. Tickets $12 pp. The following night they play at FCC Siem Reap. Obviously, both will be sell-outs.
