Gig Guide - Thursday the 26th of May, 2011

EQUINOX - bar cocktails, art gallery, live music, restaurant, pool table, foosball, dancing, rooftop. Open daily from 7:00AM


The Kampot River Music Festival is rolling ahead as planned and will feature at least 7 of Cambodia's premier musical acts preforming beneath the full moon in one of the most beautiful and auspicious locations imaginable - the banks of the Kampot River, Cambodia. The festival will occur on Friday, Saturday and Sunday the 24th, 25th and 26th of June, 2011 and information on how, when and where to buy tickets will be available in next weeks Leng Pleng newsletter.

A huge number of gigs on this weekend. Friday night is totally packed with 10 gigs whilst Saturday daytime has 3 special gigs and night-time has only 5 (but very special) gigs. Tonight you can catch Holliday in Cambodia at Mao's and the debut performance of Jimmy James Caporn at Setsara. The latter is a new performer in town and will turn into a regular Thursday night performance at this venue.

As mentioned last week, Equinox introduces to us yet another of the capitals newest bands - showing us that they are at the forefront of Cambodia's live music scene. The new assemblage is the Grass Snake Union Band and they play bluegrass with a bend toward rock, blues and skiffle. Should be a totally great way to spend Friday night. This venue will also hot a new band in Cyclosonik on Saturday night.  

Ritchy & Phil Quartet will also play in Phnom Penh on Friday night at the FCC. This gig will be preceded by free dance lessons on offer by the PSwings dance group from 7:00PM till 8:00PM.

On Saturday Mao's present the a performance of the totally unique, totally eclectic, totally huge Phnom Penh Hippie Orchestra. If you haven't been to this venue yet then I urge you to get down there. It is a large, well laid-out colonial era building on the first floor and on the riverfront - corner Sisowath and Street 106 (right next to the night market). Being that this band normally attracts a large number of dancers - the huge wooden dance floor should really allow people to twirl and step their way through the gypsy-folk, swinging sounds of this professional ensemble. Should be a great gig! Look out for the Cambodian Space Project at this venue in the coming weeks.

Great DJ gigs on this week both at Mao's and Pontoon. On Friday is DJ Rob Revo and DJ CoolSam at Mao's playing their Twisted House mix. On Saturday night (well Sunday morning more precisely) DJ Solo and DJ Illest will play Pontoon but be aware that the doors will not open until 1AM that night.

One of the three Saturday afternoon gigs is the special edition of the Tuk Tuk Sessions at the Mith Samlanh Fun Fair on Street 13. They will maneuver a tuk-tuk on stage and have a variety of acts perform to the gathered crowd. Should be quite a spectacle. There are a myriad of other displays and activities on at this afternoon fair and it is worth a look if you have never been before.

Also, news this week of two new web sites. Equinox now have a new site at their domain at http://www.equinox-cambodia.com . You will be able to keep up with all the gigs at this venue, plus art exhibitions, and music and video downloads. Cool! The Teaner Terners have uploaded their new and totally cool site at http://www.theteanerterners.com/ . There are some sections still awaiting content - but when it is finished you will be able to pick up all the band news, download songs and videos and keep up with the bands whereabouts. Right now you can pick up a free download of volume 1 of the bands latest album "Is it Just Me?" at http://soundcloud.com/theteanerterners. Cool! Also, if you are unable to reach the Sharky Blog then you are not the only one - it is because you have an ISP that has blocked all access to URLs with blogspot.com.

I will leave you today with the latest offering from Krom. It is a song entitled "Prison of Sobriety" and can be downloaded here http://www.youtube.com/user/themekongsessions.

Cheers, have a great weekend, be cool with each other and see you around the traps. Here's this weeks gig guide.
