CAMA will be kicking off another year of musical hijinks with a bang this month, as power-pop icon Ken Stringfellow joins us for a pair of intimate solo gigs in HCMC and Hanoi.

With over 40 releases to his name, Stringfellow has forged a reputation as one of modern music’s most adaptable and prolific talents, playing thousands of live shows in some 40 countries across six continents over the last 20 years, including headline slots from Glastonbury to Rio, both solo, as frontman of iconic Seattle rockers The Posies, and as a member of legendary acts such as R.E.M. and Big Star.

Starting out with the formation of The Posies in the vibrant Seattle scene of the late 80s, Ken has since gone on to win popular and critical acclaim for his three solo studio albums, alongside live and studio performances with artists like Snow Patrol, Neil Young, Patti Smith, Mudhoney, Wilco, French singer Cali, the Afghan Whigs, Death Cab for Cutie, Lagwagon and dozens more.


Ticket price: 100k on the door only Hanoi, 150k on the door only HCMC.

C.A.M.A. is a collective of like-minded individuals based in Hanoi bringing independent music to Vietnam for the good of all. C.A.M.A. has been active in Hanoi since 2005 and has played a central role in bringing over 20 bands and DJs to Hanoi.


  1. Thanks CAMA for organizing gigs like this. It is rare to have such high-quality performances in Hanoi.

    It was really disappointing that a lot of people in the audience thought that they were more interesting than the artists and talked as loud as one maybe could do when a cover-band is playing in some kind of bar. For sure in this setting it was totally respect-less towards the two artists that were trying to make it an intimate gig as advertised. Even after both artist requested silence for a few times, these people did not bother to stop their extremely interesting conversations. Since these people do not seem to have enough understanding about respecting artists (and the other people that truly are interested in the performance), perhaps (how sadly) someone should tell them to continue their talks outside of the venue….
