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

Gig Guide - Thursday the 10th of March, 2011


This week I want to start by pointing you in the direction of a totally cool new web site. It is called the Tuk Tuk Sessions and can be found at http://www.TukTukSessions.com. The site is based on a simple concept -  "One song, one take, one tuk-tuk". A quick peruse of the site will clue you into what the authors, Alan Soutaris and Rory, are doing but basically it is a collection of videos of acoustic cover versions by local musicians. Each song is performed within the confines of a tuk-tuk as it is driven through the streets of Phnom Penh and, as such, the true meaning of the song and the feeling it pervades is enhanced by the scenes in the background and the faces of the curious onlookers as the vehicle roles on down the street. Totally cool!. I encourage you to take a look. If you are a musician then I also encourage you to get in contact with Alan and Rory and talk to them about getting a song up there.

A quick reminder about our new Facebook page. It can be found at http://www.facebook.com/LengPleng and will allow you to make comments and keep in contact with what is happening over a shorter time frame. To become a part of it just visit the page and then click the LIKE button (and sign-up there is you are not already on Facebook).

Gigs of the week include the Stiff Little Punks at 99 Bar on Friday. It is a farewell gig to their drummer and promises to be a great party - anyone who saw the band at Penhstock II will know not to miss this one. The Lazy Drunks will also rock through some 60s and 70s classics at the same venue on Saturday night. The FCC Phnom Penh continues to import outfits from surrounding countries as the band Swackhammer - an expat band from Vietnam - returns to the rooftop on Sisowath Quay. They play both Friday and Saturday. On Saturday also you can catch the new full-on electrified Chicago blues of Little Duke and the Mekong Blues Messengers at Equinox. They will be playing with their new bass player, Chris, and promise to be a totally great way to enjoy your Saturday night.

I want to also quickly update you again on the growing list of open-mic nights around the traps. Setsara continues every Wednesday night with their very popular Acoustic Sessions and is followed on Thursday by the Electric Eclectic Limelight Jukebox Jam at Paddy Rice. If you are looking for somewhere to listen or play live music on a Sunday afternoon then there is The Local 2 which starts at 4PM near the riverfront. There is also the Riverside Bistro which has an open-mic every Tuesday and Sunday from 8:30PM. Finally there is Sihanoukville's great live music venue called The Wall who have an open-mic every Friday night starting at 9PM. This week it is being hosted by guitar god Kenny Smith. If you are in town then I encourage you to get down there.

Next, just some news that in the coming days a new page will be added to the web site and will contain a list of links to worthwhile downloads of photos and videos. Haven't had time to do it yet - but it will be done in the next few days. Stay tuned! If you have any you want included then please feel free to email me.

I will leave you this week with a link to some great tracks from the Khmer electro-hip-hop-rock-funk maestro's Professor Kinski and MC Curly. Their latest tracks can be listened to here , including Kinski's Bachelor mix of the Khmer 60s rock song Roam Roam Roam featuring the great vocals of Srey Thy (http://soundcloud.com/user1700117/cambodian-space-project-roam/).

Cheers and see you around the traps.
