The Leng Pleng Gig Guide comes out on a Thursday or Friday of every week

Gig Guide of Cambodia - Thursday, 22nd of April, 2010

Hey Sport !

Things looking a little more happening after the new years break. The Cambodian Space Project start a new thing with their boutique acoustic sessions on tonight (Thursday) at La Croisette (They have a $2 Mojito special for the event also). Sharkys are back online with three bands over the next couple of weekends. The Velkommen Inn continue the live music this week is the debut of a brand new ensemble appropriately named the Bayon Blues (formerly known as The Sensational John Lee Hooker Band Without John).


Also there are three festival-type events happening this weekend and next. There are two in Phnom Penh this weekend and one in Siem Reap next weekend. The two in Phnom Penh are happening at different times - thus giving you a chance to catch both. The first is on Saturday morning when the NGO Mith Samlanh have their monthly Fun Fair. The fair will include performances by Army of Snipers and Skip Sutherland (as commented on in an earlier post) who will dust-off the vocal chords and guitar to perform for the first time since Radio City 30 years ago (a write-up of the original band can be seen here). The Fun Fair also constitutes a variety of other entertainment and fair for the kids and, of course, supports a very worthwhile organization.


The big festival in Phnom Penh this week is the event put on by KlapYaHandz. This is a significant event with the organization able to somehow garner the artistic forte of Pheap, Angry Woebot, and Felicia Cruz & Spills while they were passing by in a gig in Thailand. It will feature street art by Pheap and is a must for Hip Hop junkies.

Live music in Siem Reap is all part of the Friendship Festival 2010 on the 1st of May. It is featuring brand new names to this blog - including the Battambang Blue Grass Boys and Bass Steppaz and I am pretty sure the guys from Cambojam are in there somewhere too. Should be a total blast - please send any reports post-gig to Following the Applause if you are there.
