Live Music This Weekend - Thursday 18th of March, 2010


A quick-fire gig guide this week as I have been traveling between Phnom Penh and Australia. The Cambodia Space Project will not play at Maxines (Snowy's Bar) this Saturday as had previously been advertized. This is due to the structural considerations of the bar - hopefully to be sorted out soon. Instead they move the gig to Equinox. This may be the last time you will get to see the band (in its current line-up at least) - so get down there.

I have introduced another service to the blog which is a list of links to online resources as recommended by the Leng Pleng clientele - i.e.: you!. If you have any online resouces that you think is worth being in the list then please let me know.

Violinist Looking for Music Collaboration

I am a violinist looking for some kind of music collaboration in Phnom Penh.  I would love to find some classical musicians in PP who would like to play some chamber music; however I am also open to some experimental music ideas too.  I play piano and a bit of guitar and would love to hear any ideas.

Live Music This Weekend - Thursday the 10th of March, 2010

Hello again from the backwaters of Phnom Penh's live music scene.

There is another new service on the blog. Now you can easily join the Leng Pleng mailing list by clicking on the ' Join Email List' on the top right-hand-side of the home page.

The Hellhounds will continue their regular Sharkys Thursday gig for March but not this week as Ross (mixer / manager) is not available. Sharkys continues to support the live music scene with 3 bands over the next 2 weeks - including a debut 3 full  sets by the Lazy Jazz Drunks. The Lazy Jazz Drunks will also debut later this month at a new venue for live music being the Candy Bar. The  band is looking from regular players to join them also - so if you are looking to play then they are happy to talk with any drummers, bassists or keyboard players based in Phnom Penh - contact Ian (andersonhead[Chuck in the @ sign here]yahoo.co.uk or call 017 992960)

The Velkommen Inn also continues to support live music and next week, on Friday, Melanie (ex-Betty Ford) will make her debut. Should be a great gig - more details next week. Also, Kheltica make a welcome return when they flood the Chinese House with green for St Patricks Day. There will be nothing but pure tradtitional Irish music, singing and dancing so be sure to wear something green!!

The Cambodian Space Project continue their national tour by going to Siem Reap this weekend. If you are up in the 'City of Temples' then you will be able to catch their 3 gigs at the Silk Garden (on Thursday), Abacus (Friday) and The X-Bar (Saturday). They will also travel to Mondulkirri in the middle of next week for a few days of playing with local villages and to run a musical workshop. Their final gig in Cambodia with band founder/leader Julien Poulson will be at Maxine's (Snowy's Bar across the river) on the 20th of this month - get down there early if you intend to go because they generally have to close the doors once the place reaches a certain capacity.
