Ah, here comes the new year celebrations, and with it the promise of a few days of empty streets and closed businesses.
Thursday 11: Bywater @ Baitong, a kind of open mic, Baitong, #7, St 360, 7.30 – 10.30 pm. Khmer New Year special! I’m particularly encouraging singers to come — the acoustics are nice — and make their Phnom Penh debut, or return.
Friday 12: The Lazy Drunks, Sharky (St 130) from 9.30 pm. Getting wiggy with it.
Monday 15: The Lazy Drunks, Sundance (St 172). Poolside wiggy classic rock and probably some birthday karaoke too.
The Sunday Sundowner Sessions will not be held this weekend, on account of New Year.
Next week: the St 360 gravitational pull continues, with my debut at Le Jardin (Friday 19th, 7 – 9.30), and the week to follow, a collaborative musical poetry soundscape event at Java Cafe (24th, 7.30 pm).
