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

Gig Guide of Cambodia - Wednesday the 26th of May, 2010

Good day,

Well, Phnom Penh jazz seems to be making a surge recently as demonstrated by the The Phnom Penh Hot Strings Jazz Club last weekend. It was a totally impressive gig and we are all hanging for more of the same at a later date. It is also evidenced by the formation and imminent debut of Eastern Jazz Brigade (name to be finalized) which will debut at Le Jardin sometime very soon - looking forward to that too. There is also the stream of jazz emanating from Studio 182. Michelle Manzo will be down there for only a short while longer - so if you haven't seen her yet then you had better get down there. This all augers well for the music scene here.

The Chinese House is proving to be a great venue for live music (albeit a little warm downstairs - renovations are in the pipeline to convert it to a fully functional live music venue). I suggest you do not miss this weekends  special performances at this venue. On Friday there will be another highly anticipated gig by the Mekong Pirates. They are always a great time and usually play to a packed house - it will be a totally great. Saturday night sees the Bong Thom dot Com 10th Anniversary Party that will feature 4 bands - including a special appearance by the Espresso Thmei. Musicians will be invited get up and play later on in the night - so feel free to suggest it to the organizers. The party is FREE to get inside together with the Chinese House is offering a special $15 Open Bar all night - This includes water, soft-drinks, beer, wine and cocktails.

Also, keep your eyes open for a brand new music venue opening very soon. It will be called Dream Up and has been created as a live music venue in mind - with a permanent stage and equipment. It is the brain-child of Sergei (or Russian Dave as you may know him by). More details on that soon.

Also, The Cavern is back up again with the Bluesberry Jam Night - it is happening this Thursday and all musicians are welcome. If you are looking to join or start a band then this is a good place to start. More details via the link below.

If you are looking for something a bit different music wise then CCF are offering a Krom Monster - which is being billed as experimental contemporary Khmer music. This will be performed together with a video presentation. CCF will also organize the annual FĂȘte de la Musique next month that will feature the Parisian group Java. They bill the band as a subtle mix of a rap beat with the sounds of accordion and a funky rhythm. Sounds coool!

OK, here is this weeks guide.
