Bars, clubs and pubs oh my!
It’s their first Oscar’s show for the year and it should be excellent. They are really really good.
Music starts at 10 but it’s best to go a bit earlier if you want a table.

And a time to ska
March 1, 2019
The Phnom Penh music scene, in the ten years or so that I’ve known it, has always been very supportive of specific genre bands. A time there was when the best room-filling bands in town were bluegrass (the original Grass Snake Union) or straight funk (Durian), and there was a string of tribute bands, including the Rolling Stones (Captain Jack) and Alice Cooper (Muscle of Love), not to mention Shambolic 69 and the long-running (still going!) Stiff Little Punks. My first venture into putting together bands was The Magical Mystery Tourists who did one show at The Cavern (don’t look for it, it’s not there anymore) performing the entire Abbey Road album for its 40th anniversary.
And so it continues. Two of the most recent rush of specific genre bands play at Oscar’s on the Corner in a double header on Friday night, the South East Asia Soul Revue and new budding ska outfit Checkered Past, led by scene veteran Jon Banules on bass, fronted by not-so-newly-arrived singer Ariane Parkes.
