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

Gig Guide - Thursday the 17th of February, 2011


Well it looks like the music scene here is going through transitional phase with some groups disbanding or moving outside the country while other evolve into something fresh or brand new bands coagulate from the eclectic mix of lone musicians. A showcase and celebration of the local live music scene is the annual Penhstock put on by Sharkys. In November 2009 the inaugural Penhstock showcased a total of 8 of the countries best expat bands - this month, with the emergence of Penhstock II, there will be over 18 bands! The festival will occur over three days on the 25th, 26th and 27th with 6 bands performing on each night. An un-ordered list of  the bands for each night is available on the Sharky blog at http://sharkybar.blogspot.com/2011/02/penhstock-ii-schedule.html.Stayed tuned for more next week.

Another great happening will occur in Kep on March 5th with the Kep Beach Festival. It will include a great DJ line-up playing a mix of African groove, soul, funk and more. Kong Nay - the grandfather of Khmer blues -  will also perform there as will 30 local orphans who will perform a mixture of Apsara, modern dancing and theatre. Should be a totally great event - look out for more news via this web site and http://www.kepbeachfestival.com/.

The Srey Thy and the Cambodian Space Project are set to return to Cambodia this coming week and will perform at Equinox on the 4th of March before heading off the Hong Kong (with Bong Sak) and the U.S. - cool! 

Equinox will also host Soren Borch and the Dudley Do-Rights this Saturday and will be definitely worth catching. They are an acoustic setup that play a totally danceable mix of blues, folk, country, bluegrass, gospel, jazz, rockabilly, and other forms of good-time upbeat music. Another danceable mix will also come from the 14-member Phnom Penh Hippie Orchestra which will perform at Sharkys on Saturday night.

Also, as an adjunct to last weeks post, I have it on good authority that you can currently catch Jimmy Baeck and his great saxophone licks on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at Studio 182.

Cheers and see you around the traps. Here's this weeks gig guide.
