A badass French band.
Check them out...
Not now, RIGHT NOW.

Last night when we went to Kukuluku in town to see Dan and his band (the Phnom Penh Hippie Orhestra) play, we weren't sure what to expect. Well, the place was packed! In the band was Dan on drums, a guitarist, bassist, trumpet, clarinet, fiddle, trumbone, accordion, a small oddly shaped Russian guitar and two others. The music was fun: gypsy street music. By the true stars of the show was a band from France...8CTOPUS. Out-fucking-standing. A young group of handsome French gentlemen- they totally rocked the house. The main two guys were on trombone and trumpet. The others played trumpet, baritone, some other type of horn, and 3 guys on drums. I haven't been so excited about music in quite awhile...and this music made you want to do backflips. They danced and shouted and played the shit outta their horns. The crowd went wild. Like a more upbeat, hip, excited version of he band BEIRUT. All of them are about the age of those in University. They are here playing music with street kids of Cambodia. Their music was totally unreal, and still has me grinning.
