Live Music this Weekend - 4th of February, 2010

The FCC is excelling things in regard to the burgeoning live music scene here in Kampuchea. They have 2 international acts and a variety of local acts on the schedule for February.

The Cambodian Space Project has a number of interesting gigs coming up. They are taking a space mission to Takeo for the weekend of the Chinese New Year (year of the tiger), i.e.: 13th and 14th of February. There will be a space bus organized that will seat at least 25. They have a PA and sound system organized for a small provincial village called Ba Srae and will perform there. If any other acts / musicians would like to join and perform there then please contact me (TelevisionTed@BongThom.com). As with all Cambodian Space project gigs - it should be a real blast! The band will also be heading to Hong Kong in March for a couple of gigs

Not usually my thing to advertise music at Naga World but a 12-girl band from China cannot be overlooked. Looks totally unique and potentially very cooooool - see http://www.12girls.org/english/yszx.asp There are 12 gorgeous Chinese women and they play a range of traditional Chinese instruments doing everything from contemporary pop to jazz and classiical arrangements. It's a buy-a-ticket thing from NagaWorld (023 216834 / 5 / 6). They play on the 24th and 26th of February.

The gig guide is a little light-on this week. Let me know if you are playing anywhere and I will add it to the list. Missed a great show last week at The Chinese House by Shangri La - relevant emails have now been added to the list. Please be aware that both Lady Penh and the Phnom Penh Post use this guide as content on their publications so anything included here will also be forwarded on to them.
