On Friday, March 13th, KCSB-FM and Club Mercy present Dengue Fever at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club.

Dengue Fever is acclaimed for dynamically mixing neo-psychedelia, garage rock, Khmer rap, Latin grooves, Afro percussion, and a British Invasion sound with ‘60s Cambodian pop. After a dozen years of touring all but two continents of the globe, and a new LP The Deepest Lake (released by their own start-up label, Tuk Tuk Records), Dengue Fever returns to the local spotlight for a 21-and-over concert starting at 830pm.

Founded by brothers Zac and Ethan Holzman, who have long shared a passion for vintage Cambodian rock’n’roll, Dengue Fever emerged after their discovery of the immigrant singer Chhom Nimol in 2002. Already a star in her native homeland, the lovely singer brings a retro-revival “go-go boots” style to her otherwise eclectic sextet, creating a vibe that suggests an ultra-hip 1960s Phnom Penh nightclub.

Openers are still to be determined. Soho is at 1221 State St. #205 in downtown Santa Barbara.  Doors are at 7pm. Tickets are on-sale now via TicketWeb and the SOhO website.

Stay tuned to 91.9 FM for ticket and music giveaways. Even better, on the afternoon of March 13th, the band will be making a live in-studio appearance from KCSB’s Studio A!

More info about that is also TBA.
