Gig Guide of Cambodia - Thursday the 26th of August, 2010

Hey,

All those at the Paddy Rice Electric Eclectic Limelight Jam Night two weeks ago had a great time. Tonight it all happens again and Alan Keehan has invested in some brand new mics and a drum kit to add to the mix. Head down tonight at 8:00PM, should be a good time - corner of Sisowath Quay and Street 136.

The music at Paddy Rice will continue right through to Saturday night with the new combination of Those Guys playing on Friday and Keltica playing on Saturday night. Lots of ventilation at this venue, so if you're not a smoker you can still enjoy the music.

If you want to know who Those Guys actually are then you can also catch them at Sharkys on Saturday night as well.

Another great new thing happening this weekend is the triple bill at The Cavern. All of those who get into the English beat can head down there on Friday night and catch the Stiff Little Punks, the Teaner Terners and a new blend called the Lazy Jazz Caverners. So bring your boots down to Street 104.

Anybody in France at the moment still has two more chances to catch the Cambodian Space Project. They will be playing both tonight and on Saturday at Le Karton and The Lizard Lounge respectively. The Saturday gig will be their final gig before returning to the land of wrong-way-drivers.If you are in Paris then don't miss this gig.

Here's this weeks gig guide.

Latest Gig Guide

Photo of the Week
Phnom Penh will be treated again this weekend at the FCC with the return of Warapo. Be prepared for a totally great night of wine, music, and dance.

Hey

There are still many local bands out-of-action due to the 'samrak' of some of the members. This hasn't meant that this weekend is lacking in some totally great gigs.

The gig of the week this week has got to be Warapo when they return to the FCC Phnom Penh on Saturday night. If you missed them last time then don't this time! This band hails from Cuba and is a wonderful collection of totally danceable and exhilarating Latino numbers - see their story some of their songs and clips here.

The Teener Turners will play Equinox this Saturday night. They are one of the capital's newest combinations - specializing in indie rock. Anyone that was at the open-mic at Paddy Rice last week would have been treated to an acoustic preview of the band. So, together with Equinox's new sound stage and great dance area, it should be a good night.

There will be a changing of the guard at Studio 182 this weekend as Jus'Cynthia's stint comes to a climatic finish on Friday night and with the introduction of Sheila Cooper early next week. In between renowned singer and trumpet player Steve Lowry will come across from Bangkok for a Saturday night gig.

The Dream-Up Bar keeps the music happening this weekend also with an open-mic jam night on Friday night. Musicians are welcome to come down and play. There is some delicious food and lots of cold beer. Saturday night sees the venue host a blues-rock night with the Shangri-la band.

Stay tuned, because in September there will be some great gigs coming up at some of Phnom Penh's best music venues. (1) The Chinese House will be back online (2) MetaHouse is planning to introduce to us one of the best things to come out of the Cambodian music scene in years - with an all-Cambodian alternative rock band - Cartoon Emo. (3) The Cambodian Space Project return from France with the Kingdom's first 7" vinyl single release in 35 years.

Here's the latest gig guide.

Gig Guide of Cambodia - Thursday the 12th of August, 2010

Twilight Dzouns and Bum 'N Draze make another anticipated appearance at Sharky Bar this Friday the 13th of August. It's all part of their  Back to Abnormal  tour and the gig will feature the guest guitarist, James Phipek plus a range of BnD merchandise - including free copies of the bands latest release - 'Ostrich Song/Lobotomy Lover'. Also don't miss the 2010 Sharky's Air Guitar Competition scheduled to start at 11:00PM

Hey,

Don't miss tonight's inaugural Electric Eclectic Limelight Jukebox Jam tonight at Paddy Rice. This will be the first of a regular jam night to be held at the venue every second Thursday. It will feature a number of Phnom Penh's best local expat musicians - including Melanie, and - as always - all musicians are welcome to come down to play. There is free beer for anyone who performs as well as a lucky draw prize for a dinner for two.

Paddy Rice will also host Lost Highway this Friday. This will be the start of regular Friday night live music at the venue. With their regular Fridays, the Thursday jam session and Wednesday night quiz night + live music - Paddy Rice are really supporting the live music scene.

Friday will not be the only gig for Lost Highway as this band is also playing at Sharkys on Saturday night and a debut at the MetaHouse on Sunday (starting at 7:00PM). This latter gig will be a tribute night to mark the anniversary of the passing of Elvis Presley.

Just a quick plug for a Siem Reap web site. If you are heading to Siem Reap and looking for things to do and want to know what is happening then please try the site www.SiemReapLife.com.

Finally, Skip Sunderland (Ex-Radio City) makes a popular return to the Mith Samlanh Fun Fair this Saturday at 10:00AM. I know it's probably a bit early for most of you but you not only get to tune into some live music but can also pick up some great bargain furniture and other second-hand gear. Well worth a look - Street 13 near the corner with 178.

    Singer Available

    Hello,

    I am looking to join a band or just a group of people wanting to jam so that I can get back in touch with my musical roots. I used to play trombone in several jazz bands in Sydney, compose jazz as well as sing in some jazz and some rock groups. I left my trombone in Guatemala, so all's I got is my voice. Anyone interested in jamming with a singer let me know. Cheers!
