You’re invited.....

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Well hope it goes well. I am of the opinion if I am going to a concert I am going to a concert. I want the full on sweaty experience. Not to a bar which suddenly gets drowned out by live music that a lot of people aren't listening to. I also hate bars playing thumpy house music and techno so loud you cant even talk. Again, if I want to do that - and I used to go to raves most weekends from about 1988 to 1994 - I will go to some pitch black nightclub with a strobe light.

Maybe I am just an old git. I dunno.

There is a restaurant near me on a lake that serves great prawns. But they have a live band every night so I have only been once. Meal ruined. Who wants to eat with someone warbling cover version being banged out (butchered) all of 20 feet away?

Madness.
And I thought I was the only one thinking exactly the same way. I hate live (read: loud) music in a bar where I want to have some beers and conversations. And yes, when I want to hear loud music - live or not - I go to a night club. Oh well, suppose I'm indeed getting old, although I'm probably older than Seawolf, as my nightclub years were about 10 years earlier than his...

Anyway @rozzieoz: have a good one and wish you lots of success and fun in Siem Reap!

I’m putting on free beers and pizzas and making some music with my friends because I’m moving.

That’s what this post is about.

I don’t give a shit how anyone feels about music in bars. That’s not what this post is about.

Where did people get the idea that Cambodia Country ( music) Band plays techno shit music

If it's Country Music, it's got to be good music.

Let’s have 5-10 different parties, each a different theme so that everyone can enjoy their particular musical tastes. I’d like classical music and prefer white wine or rosé. Limit to 5 Australians, 5 Americans and 2 TEFLers max. No smoking

Sorry I didn't mean any offence. Just a personal opinion which holds no weight for anybody else at all :)

Maybe I just don't like real music (I like electronic music 87-94 and hip hop 80s/90s) enough to appreciate proper musicianship. I mean, I have seen Pink Floyd and The Rolling Stones and left both concerts thinking well that was one big 'meh', would prefer to listen to the albums at home. Really boring events in gigantic stadiums.

I did go to a lot of gigs when I was in my early teens - The Damned, The Ramones, Dead Kennedys, Conflict, Subhumans, Culture Shock, GBH, Coil, Alien Sex Fiend, The Cure, Sham 69, Stiff Little Fingers, The Exploited, The Levellers, The Pixies, Nirvana, Stone Roses, Public Enemy, The Beastie Boys and many more. But when Acid House kicked in going to 'gigs' and worshiping rock stars seemed curiously dated and twee. The kind of thing my parents did. Although I did see The Prodigy around the time they released Firestarter and it was awesome. Total mayhem.

But, yeah, I am probably just a miserable old git. I certainly wouldn't want to bounce about getting covered in other people's sweat (and spit) any more. And I guess I don't appreciate the technicalities of instrument playing to sit there and get anything out of it. And I do hate it when I am eating and the band cranks up.

Good luck though.

I play guitar but back in the day I was a front man/singer type for a blues band. I'm the doorknob sitting on the floor - it was the early nineties so i can't be held completely responsible. The photo and write-up being our first in the local music paper in Perth, X-press magazine - we thought we'd made it.

Exactly! As if I’d have shit music at my party.
