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

Gig Guide of Cambodia - Thursday the 10th of June, 2010


Everything is happening on Saturday this week with 7 different acts on that night. It was only 3 gig-guides ago that nearly everything was on a Friday. I guess things will change with the availability of bands and with the season.

My apologies for the erroneous info in regard to double-header - being the Java and Mekong Pirates gig and the Fête de la Musique with CCF. As Dominique pointed out, it is actually happening on Wednesday the 16th of June (oops).

There is another double-header occurring this Friday at Sharky Bar with both the Stiff Little Punks and Lost Highway playing. Lost Highway are really hitting it off at a lot of places now - they will also play for the train ride party offered by the Chinese House this Sunday.

Several gigs are being associated with the World Cup of Football - this includes the gigs at The Cavern and Pontoon. Should be a great month of football and music - no doubt. The Bayon Blues will be back at The Gym after the football hiatus but in the mean time will play at a brand new place for the music scene. This is at The Lazy Gecko, which is in the lakeside area (take the first left after the Phnom Penh Hotel on Monivong) and will happen on this Saturday night.

If you are heading down south then don't forget Los Popork's gig in Kampot over this weekend - it will be a totally fun and cool way to chill-out for the weekend.

Also, don't forget internationally renowned Hip-Hop exponents this Saturday at the Chenla Theatre for the . Phnom Penh Hip-Hop Festival II. It will feature Wanted Posse from France. Also, Hip-Hop enthusiats should not miss the KlapYaHandz event this Friday that will feature a "big music, art and dance night" at the NEW MetaHouse (German Cultural center - now loacted on Sothearos Blvd., south of Sihanouk Blvd.). - it should be HUGE!

The BIG news this week is the launch of the brand new Dream Up Restaurant and Bar this Saturday night. It will feature the band Shangri-la which will play a great array of acoustic Blues & Jazz and feature a Russian repertoire.

    1. I have been reliably informed that as well as the STIFF LITTLE PUNKS playing at The Cavern at 9:00PM on Saturday there will also be a Dan meats BBQ for 7 bucks - which includes 2 free drinks.



    2. Another update.

      Cambojam are having an Acoustic Session in Siem Reap over the weekend. It is occurring at Art Deli (Alley West) on Friday 11th from 9pm. It is an OPEN STAGE so every musician, singer or participant is welcome to share a musical evening.

      Also,the train-ride party by Chinese House slated for this weekend has been delayed. Hence LOST HIGHWAY will be playing actually AT the Chinese House this Sunday starting at 9:00PM.
