On this Independence Day 2008, we celebrate the country's melting pot with a From the Stage performance by L.A.'s Dengue Fever. Dengue Fever pays homage to a style of Cambodian music drawn from other influences, mainly American Rock and Roll. The result is an otherworldly sound. The band comes back to Chicago's Empty Bottle July 11.
Also a preview of a new addition to this year's Old Town Folk and Roots Festival, and a conversation with one of the organizer's of the Nuestra Musica tent.
