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

Gig Guide of Cambodia - Thursday the 29th of July, 2010

Bona Thiem cuts out a classic rock & roll song at a recent gig at the Memphis Pub. The venue will be hosting a special Cambodian Rock Night this Saturday that will present a range of songs from the golden era in Cambodian rock history -  including songs from Pen Ron, Ros Sereysothea, and Sin Sisomouth. Expect a long list of special guests as well as a great array of lucky draw prizes.


The Cambodian Space Project will perform their very last gig before heading to France. The gig will happen at Equinox on this Saturday the 31st of July, 2010 starting at 7:30PM. Note the early start time there. Hopefully some of the members will be heading over to Memphis Pub after their gig. If you will be in France for any part of August then please feel free to contact the band as they would be more than happy to catch up with everybody while they are there.

For the more culturally inclined, the Cambodian Youth Arts Festival presented by Cambodian Living Arts will be starting next week on the 7th of August, 2010 at the Chaktomouk Theatre. It will include a number of exhibitions, performances, ceremonies and screenings by local artists and visitors. More details of the event can be found here. There is a benefit concert for the festival happening this coing Tuesday at the CJCC that is featuring two international performers from prior CLA productions - being Diane Phelan and Marc de la Cruz.

For the less culturally inclined (or for those who prefer culture are a much more obtuse angle) there is Cambodia's worst punk band playing again at Sharky's this Friday in the form of the Stiff Little Punks. They will be joined by new band to hit the scene - the Teener Turners - who play Indie covers and start at about 9:00PM. The Stiff Little Punks will be on at around 10:00PM.

A brand new combination is also going to hit the Phnom Penh streets this Saturday at Paddy Rice. Known as Those Guys they play a series of classic rock & roll & Blues. They represent the first of a series of bands playing at Paddy Rice as this venue revs up the live music scene on the riverfront. Over the next three weeks Paddy Rice will feature 3 great acts - including another performance from the elusive and beautiful, rock & roll Apsara, Melanie.

The gig for the Phnom Penh Hot Strings Jazz Club at the new MetaHouse that I mentioned last week is definitely on this week. The Sunday session will probably turn into a regular Sunday evening jam session - so all musicians are invited to get down to support it.

If you are in the beautiful, serene city of Siem Reap then you can catch the CamboJam at the Banana Leaf on Friday night. Cool!

Here's this weeks guide.
