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

Gig Guide of Cambodia - Thursday the 6th of May, 2010

Whoooooooo yeah!!

Things have picked up since the new year break in the middle of last month. Live music is on nearly every day between now and next Saturday. There is another 5 day holiday next week so the following weekend maaaaaaay be a little sparse live-music-wise.

One of the main reasons why there is so much live music is the support given by Mike, Ross, Jim and the boys at Sharkys. This week they have had Lost Highway on for two nights and will then have The Hellhounds on tonight (Thursday) followed by the Lazy Jazz Drunks on Friday night.

Another reason is the new band the Bayon Blues - who are the cause of a bit of buzz around town presently and who will play at 3 venues over the coming week. This will include a huuuuuuuuuuge gig debuting at the Gym Bar for Wednesday night. This will be worth getting to as it will be blast off for the Kings Birthday holidays. Please get down and support the Gym Bar for this gig - it may ensure another venue that will have regular live music gigs.

Before you go to the Gym Bar, however, you may want to slip down to the Chinese House and catch the boutique version of the Cambodian Space Project. The band will perform a short set of acoustic songs with Srey Thy before a discussion forum on Cambodian music of the 60s until now. This has been organized by Overseas Press Club and will include members of the Cambodian Space Project, Dengue Fever and other distinguished and knowledgeable guests.

The other main reason for the plethora of music this week is, of course, the arrival of the globally popular Dengue Fever. They arrive early next week and will make three appearances. They play first in a gig to raise money for Cambodia Living Arts on Tuesday the 11th at the Parkway Center (?!). Tickets are $10 and it should be a great way to see the band. On the Wednesday, three of the band members will be involved in the forum discussion at the Chinese House (as mentioned above). On Thursday they will play their main concert as sponsored by the U.S. Embassy. It will be in the park opposite Wat Botum (and opposite the Hong Kong Center). It should be a huge crowd and a great time for everyone.

The new Saint Tropez is causing quite a buzz as a new piped, DJ music venue. It is located near the Walkabout and is reportedly a great place to dance. DJ Joy and Theo Dj will be on there this Saturday.
