Some of you may have been surprised to turn around this week and be faced with yet another 5 day holiday! These Cambodian public service holidays do tend to sneak up from behind and catch you unawares - certainly it has not seemed to have reduced the ferocity of gig guide this week with 8 gigs on Friday and a further 8 on Saturday and Sunday.

Ritchy & Phil have obviously thought ahead and are putting on a series of shows for the residents and holiday revelers in Kep. They will be playing three gigs in celebration of King Sihamoni's birthday - all of which start in the early evening. The gigs will involve special guests with DJ Knaight spinning tunes after the live music on all the gigs and with that most-grooviest of blues-harp players Mr. Nash playing on the Saturday at Knai Bang Chatt. Cool! Let's hope there will be more of these special events put on by provincial venues during future holiday seasons.

A new band hits the Phnom Penh venues this week in the form of the all-Filipino band Musikero. They are a revamped version of Les Bannis and their gigs include Mao's and The Local II this weekend. Mao's and will also have the acoustic classics sung by the two lovely ladies of Holliday in Cambodia tonight - great to see this band for a Thursday night beer on the riverfront. Also, the regular Friday night DJ gig at Mao's will be on with DJ CoolSam and DJ Bob Revo on Friday.

Friday's live music pick is Little Duke and the Mekong Blues Messengers at Equinox. This band played a totally grooving and happening gig at Mao's a couple of weeks ago and are set to swingin'-blues the Phnom Penh PSwings (http://www.pppswings.com/) at the totally revamped venue again this week. Marco and the crew at Equinox now have installed 5HP air-conditioners that will control the heat generated from the packed dance-floor (and should make it totally more bearable for non-smokers ;o) ). It is best to enter the dance scene from the stairs located inside the venue (i.e: past the pool tables) rather than the set of stairs outside on the right.

The Teaner Terners will connect us with the second installment of their "Is It Just Me?" album launch. The event also coincides with the bands anniversary and is going to be filmed by an international professional music video production team who will record the gig and edit the footage to create some music videos - cool! The gig will be happening at Sharkys this Saturday night.

Look out for some exciting gigs coming up with two new bands and possibly two music festivals in June. Have a great extended weekend and see you around the traps. Here's this weeks gig guide.
