Dengue Fever @ the Rickshaw Stop

Dengue Fever @ the Rickshaw Stop

When I first heard Chhom Nimol’s melifluous voice on NPR on a story about Dengue Fever, I was attending Strictly Business 2 in Long Beach, CA right where she was discovered in a nightclub in Little Phnom Penh area which was very close to the hotel where the conference was held.  All quite serendipitous and here they were playing in San Francisco at the Rickshaw Stop.  Luckily I bought tickets before it sold out and got to check them out and they definitely are recommended if you get a chance to see them.


To the center of the city where all roads meet, waiting for you
To the depths of the ocean where all hopes sank, searching for you
Well I was moving through the silence without motion, waiting for you
In a room without a window in the corner I found truth

In the shadowplay acting out your own death, knowing no more

As the assassins all grouped in four lines, dancing on the floor
And with cold steel, odor on their bodies made a move to connect
I could only stare in disbelief as the crowds all left

I did everything, everything I wanted to
I let them use you for their own ends
To the center of the city in the night, waiting for you
To the center of the city in the night, waiting for you

Music: Amiina

I’ve been doing a good job of keepin my personal resolution to try and see more live music and enjoy more arts related experiences this year.

Before we went to Lucky 13 for a few drinks and afterwards hit up The Page and then Molotovs before a preventative slice at Mythic Pizza…
