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.
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.
