In one line-up or another, The Rice Growers have been rocking Saigon and parts north for a decade with original interpretations of big-boppin’ rock classics and dance-floor favorites.
The three-man, one-girl band rolls into town this weekend for two gigs. Saturday the band plays the FCC rooftop. Sunday they will set up in the garden at Talkin’ to a Stranger.
Fronted by ‘Little Phuong’, The Rice Growers serve up an eclectic mix of dance-hall boogie, straight-ahead rock and classic ballads by the likes of the Rolling Stones, The Smiths, Bob Dylan and Midnight Oil.
The FCC show Saturday starts at 8:30. Talkin’ on Sunday at 5:00 p.m.
Put on your bogie shoes.
