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

Gig Guide - Thursday the 24th of February, 2011


Lots on this week for patrons and punters of live music. No less than 2 festivals on this weekend - being Khmarnaval in Sihanoukville and Penhstock II in Phnom Penh. You will be able to catch performances from both festivals with relative ease as the Khmarnaval  begins on Thursday and goes through till Saturday whereas Penhstock II begins on Friday and goes through until Sunday night.

The HUUUUGE event in Phnom Penh will be Penhstock II occurring at Sharkys over three days. There is a total of 18 bands all band dates and times at the time of writing are now available here. Each band will be playing for a limit of 25 to 30 minutes so the best idea would be to get there early, settle in and enjoy the entire collection of performances. With such a huge participation from the expat music community in Cambodia you can expect something very special.

During Khmarnaval there will be street performers, street dance, street parades, and music over 2 days - but the big night will occur on the Friday as upwards of 4 bands take to the stage - including At Robieb and Octopus (who will also perform on Thursday). The night will be rounded off with the sub-atomic beats of MC Curley featuring Professor Kinsky, who will probably be injecting a few of the electronic versions of the Cambodian Space Project tracks he has mixed. Totally cool!

Other gigs of note is the main performance of Octopus at Equinox on Saturday. I have seen these guys and they really put out a great sound and have a very professional and polished performance - worth catching. If you don't cacth them on Saturday then there are several other gigs they are playing - including at The 252 (which was moved from Thursday the 3rd to Wednesday the 2nd) and the brand new and total cool venue Le Moon.

This weekend also sees the return of Live African Music at the Do It All Club as well as danceable, Latino pop at the FCC Phnom Penh on Friday and Saturday nights.

Lots coming up. I will leave you with this special download from Richard Ian Greene who wrote this song called Alexandria (5MB).

Cheers and see you around the traps.
