Dengue Fever @ Echoplex Thu Apr 9
Dengue Fever, everybody’s favorite Los Angeles/Long Beach-based ’60s Cambodian Khmer pop group named after a debilitating disease, hits the Echoplex this Thursday night. On tap, a screening of the documentary Sleepwalking Through the Mekong and a live performance. (By this point you undoubtedly know the doc focuses on the band’s journey to, and performance in, Cambodia.)
Lucky you! We have some DVDs to give out at this time.
First three people to email [redacted] with a full name and valid mailing address win the goods.(UPDATE: That was fast. Never underestimate the power of a tweet) Everybody else, see you in Echo Park Thursday, where you can presumably pick up your own non-free copy right after the movie shatters your preconceptions about international travel, and just before the band shatters your preconceptions about Cambodian Khmer pop as filtered through the Port of Los Angeles and shaken, then stirred, in steamy Echo Park, the world’s melting pot.
