Live Music This Weekend - Friday the 13th of November. 2009

After a bit of a hiatus due to commitments associated with holidays, traveling and relaxing Television Ted is back at the wheel with news of a great line up of music for this weekend. Here it is:
  • Tree will be playing the Velkommen Inn this Friday evening. Tree does a mix of contemporary ballads with an acoustic guitar and a wonderful singing voice.
  • The big news is the arrival of Phil Manning in Phnom Penh for two gigs only. These will be at the FCC rooftop oin Friday and Saturday the 13th and 14th. The show starts at 7:00PM with The Hellhounds (on Friday) and The Hellhounds (Extended version) (on Saturday) doing two warm-up sets. If you like Blues / Roots then this one is not to be missed - Phil is the founding member of the Australian legendary blues/rock band Chain that put out some totally superb albums back in the 60's and 70's. He is a wonderfull finger-picker and has shared the stage with many of the genre's greatest names, including Muddy Waters, Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee, Albert Collins, Freddie King and even Bo Diddley.You can see a write-up of Phil by the FCC here: http://www.fcccambodia.com/newsletter/1109/phil-manning.php?r=h
  • Bum 'N Draze - the entertainers from hell - will be doing a show a Sharkys again this Friday. The show (and it REALLY is a show) starts around 9:00PM. If you want to go then make sure you get there at start time because it is always a spectacle. Bum 'N Draze are a Finish duet consisting of only bass and drums and they do a range of heavy, death metal the way only Bum 'N Draze can. You will either love 'em or hate 'em
  • D'Sco: The Geckos of Love (Extended) will be at Talkin' to a Stranger this Friday and also on Sunday afternoon. The Friday gig will be a part of Talkin's Blind Date night where singles become couples
  • Gasolina is having live music this Friday also - but just who it is is unknown to me right now.  Whomever it is - its starts at 7:00PM
  • The Messenger Band are a Khmer a Capella band. They are all former garment factory workers and are performing with Kong Nai - renowned champei master (traditional Cambodian 2-stringed guitar) and the "Ray Charles" of Cambodia. They will perform at the Meta House on Saturday starting at 7:00PM
  • The Hellhounds will start a new regular gig at Sharkys next Thursday. The last gig they played there was a real beauty and as such is well worth getting down to see the whole 5-piece do their stuff.
Coming up:
  • The Black Panthers debut gig at the Chinese House
  • Lazy Jazz Drunks at Huxleys
Please let me know if there are any other gigs which I have missed and I will add them forthwith.

Cheers and see you around the traps.
