The initial details for Sharky's Penhstock II festival have been released and, at this point, they are looking at presenting 18+ bands across 3 days! It is may be the largest musical event ever presented in Cambodia for the expat community. Cool! It will occur on Friday, Saturday and Sunday the 24th, 25th and 26th of February, 2011. More details are available hereThe exact times and dates for the different acts will be posted as they come to hand.

Other big news is the arrival, for the first time, of Cambodian-American singer/songwriter Laura Mam and her all-girl band the Like Me's. They will be playing to a packed audience at the Parkway Studios on Thursday the 3rd of March, 2011. An example of her work, and a tribute to Pan Ron, can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBVNnBLFHnA .

If you haven't had a chance to get down to see El Dealbreakers then you will have only this weekend to catch them. Please note that the gig at the Chinese House has been canceled due to unavoidable logistical considerations and so there are only 3 gigs left - tonight at 3Rivers, and 2 gigs on Saturday at the CCF Agenda Special Party and later at Paddy Rice. If you are not sure of what they do then check out this offering of a live recording http://www.eldealbreakers.com/audio/pressuredrop.mp3 !

The gig at CCF mentioned above will be worth catching, not only because El Dealbreakers will have their full brass section (including the the bass-line tuba) but also because the Mekong Pirates will be presenting their new line-up before the much anticipated release of their first album. Also the brand new Sycé Swing will also be on show.

Also, lovers of indie-rock should not miss the Teaner Terners playing at Sharkys this Saturday night, lovers of Celtic/folk have the irrepressible sounds of Kheltica at the FCC on Saturday night and lovers of Mississippi delta blues should catch the debut of the Bayon Blues at the FCC Phnom Penh on Friday night. If you are looking for a harder rock version - akin to the Rolling Stones - then get down to see Captain Jack at The Cavern on Friday night. Cool! 

Here's this weeks gig guide.
