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

Gig Guide of Cambodia - Thursday the 3rd of June, 2010


The BIG event on this week is the party at the Phnom Penh railway station as organized through the Chinese House. It will feature a train ride to a secret location where the Phnom Penh Hot String Jazz Club will perform for the lucky 100 people who got in and purchased tickets early. Sorry, I have been reliably informed that all tickets have been sold out for that gig - but............... no worries - you can still join the party afterward at the Phnom Penh railway station. This will be a huge party and will feature the totally danceable, Khmer 60's rock & roll exponents the Cambodian Space Project (from 9:30PM to 11:00PM) followed by a DJ dance party featuring Dr. House and DJ Marine.

If you looking for something just as danceable but more on the Latin side of the music stream then head to the FCC Phnom Penh. Bad Neighbors are back - and this time they are performing a Sunday gig also - so keep your feet moving until the very end of the weekend.

Yet another new line-up will hit the traps on Saturday night at The Cavern. This is BluesBerry Jam and will feature members from some of Phnom Penh's most prominent bands. It is being billed as an "eccentric eclectic collaboration" and will be a great place for a beer on Street 104 on a Saturday night.

As mentioned in last weeks guide, there is also a new jazz formation in town - the group is made up of some of Phnom Penh's premier jazz musicians - they are known as the Eastern Jazz Brigade. I believe they will be playing only this one gig before an extended summer break - I urge you to get down there if you don't want to wait. They play at a new music venue called Le Jardin this Friday. The Hellhounds will also be taking an extended summer break after their gig at Sharkys tonight - so get down there.

Other big news to keep in mind is the gig by Los Poporks next weekend in Kampot. It will be live at the Bodhi Tree. The Bodhi Tree is located right on the Kampot river (on the other side of the river from town) and is a totally excellent place to chill. The fact that Los Poporks are there next Saturday makes all the more reason to make the trek next weekend.

Some will remember the huge gigs made by the Happy Lucky Love You Long Time Band that played around Phnom Penh back in 2007/2006. They were a total blast and the brain-child of band leader Davis Zunk. Davis has now made the recordings from his original band - the Adult Toys - available via the internet. They can be accessed by the URL http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/AdultToys

Also, for all those people who were lucky enough to see the Rise Up ! performance by some of Cambodia's best, newest and premier Hip-Hop performers then an exhibition will be on at new German Cultural Center. The event will feature music video clips, prints, CDs and other merchandise all associated with the event - more details are available by clicking here
