The Cambodian Space Project commenced its progression towards the soft, smooth dinner music that it's always deep down wanted to be this weekend, with a performance at one of our favourite places, La Croissette. Technical issues were somewhat minimised, we welcomed the return of the clarinet of Bun Hong, and we played without either drums or bass. The results were ... mixed. While most of the tunes worked perfectly well, there were a couple that we found ourselves lost in the middle of, with no way out ... a moment or two of ankle-deep sludge in the second set. Not to leave on a downer, we revved it up again and played one last tight after-midnight set. Upward and onward!
Friday night myself and The Lovely Irene played a private party, and I rediscovered how much people like Simon & Garfunkel. And Saturday night I was at the theatre. Elsewhere, Bum'n'Draze (Fbook photos) and then Lost Highway (Fbook photos) played at Sharky, the Bayon Blues Ensemble (Fbook photos) debuted at the Velkommen Inn, and the KlapYaHandz hiphop event was held at the night market. Others will have to chronicle such events.
