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

Latest Gig Guide

The summer hiatus is well and truly over because there are over 8 acts on the Friday alone!!! This includes the Bayon Blues who are making a welcomed return to the Chinese House and, significantly, the début performance of Cartoon Emo – a young Khmer band playing original Indie rock at the MetaHouse. This Saturday includes the Cambodian Space Project at Equinox, Lost Highway at Sharkys and Kheltica at the FCC Phnom Penh. Also note that the Electric Eclectic Limelight Jukebox Jam at Paddy Rice is now on EVERY Thursday night and consequently will be on tonight.

Of special note this week is the Phnom Penh Acoustic Sessions that began last night at Setsara. Setsara is a Thai restaurant right next door to Equinox and boasts a spacious and comfortable eating area that borders the bustling street-life of Street 278. Every Wednesday for the next month (at least) Setsara will clear a space to allow Phnom Penh's best resident musicians to perform. The idea is to create a space that will facilitate the creation of music from a wide variety of musical tastes on whatever acoustic instruments a performer wishes to engage. The important word here being acoustic.

The current host of the sessions is Julien Poulson. Julien has many musical credits in his portfolio, the latest being a successful tour of France with the band he founded - the Cambodian Space Project. Julien, himself an accomplished musician on several acoustic instruments, hopes to attract  many local artists to the open-mic over the next four weeks. This will most likely include some of Cambodia's pre-eminent acoustic instrument players and, as such, will ensure a good mix of style and culture. Last night's session included a great line-up of musicians – including performances from members of the Cambodian Space Project, TJ, Ian White,  and Dan Ögren.

All musicians are encouraged to come down to play and listen. Absolutely any musical style is welcome as well as any acoustic musical instruments. The acoustic sessions will be on again next Wednesday the 22nd of September, 2010. The music will start right on 8:00PM and is augmented by a Thai buffet served from 7:00PM for $5.00.
