Dengue Fever beautifully channel the sounds of the 1960s- spy movies, Bollywood, and surf rock through Khmer vocals, electric guitar and a psychedelic organ, among other ingredients. Similarly far out and reminiscent of the Asian pop of yesteryear, Dengue Fever was born out of a trip to Cambodia for member Ethan Holtzman and an actual case of dengue fever he caught while there. He also caught a bug for the sound of '60s-era Cambodian rock, which he brought back to form his new band in his native Silverlake. Uniquely arranged for modern ears, Dengue Fever's music brings a contemporary twist on a classic era in rock n' roll, and perform tonight at Detroit Bar with The Holloys and GhostCore.
