I’m hosting the Sunday Sundowner Sessions at Alley Cat Cafe today, Sunday 20 from 5 pm. Then later in the evening closing the night at the Sharky Bar 20th anniversary celebrations with the Riverside Raybans – special guests expected.
On Friday 25 (known colloquially as Christmas) from 8 pm to 10 pm, Scoddy & James (the front half of the Riverside Raybans) will be performing for dining and dancing pleasure at Le Museum, cnr of St 178 and St 13 in Phnom Penh.
Coming up soon: the return of the Phnom Penh Ukulele Circle on Tuesdays, and New Year’s Eve with the Bokor Mountain Magic Band at FCC/Mansion.
Also soon alternating Wednesdays at Sharky Bar with my good buddy Clay George. And for the non-fainthearted, Tuesdays at Oscar 104 from 10 pm.
Also also soon a poetry/ambient music event currently in negotiations.
It has come, at last, it’s my last week in Phnom Penh, after a hectic year of performing and most other things. I am off to France for some months, to take some kind of sabbatical. I look forward to saying au revoir over the weekend, and to returning to PP next year for more of the same. Thanks to all who have supported by creative efforts during the last 12 months.
