dengue fever

plans have changed,

but this is something i'm more than a bit excited about seeing:

this california band resurrects a hybrid of cambodian pop, 60s garage, with a dash of ethiopian jazz, that more or less got killed off when the khmer rouge murdered 3 million people. among the artists, musicians, and intellectuals that were especially singled out, was a thriving musical scene that created some absolutely wild stuff (listen here)

anyhow, they're playing in columbus on february 29, and i'm definitely going to roadtrip down there to check it out.
