Gig Guide - Thursday the 28th of July, 2011


Rain, rain rain -all this week as the slooooooooowwwww season takes a hold..................................... . No worries though, the weekend has come around and the day will soon be filled with music - as well as a variety of other indulgences such as cigarettes, beer & wine, together with dancing, talking, laughing, and totally great times in adventurous Cambodia.

Great times this week for lovers of classical music as the MetaHouse continue their tribute to Franz Liszt with a piano recital by Stephan Rahn - should be a rather enjoyable night. On the other side of town the Stiff Little Punks will perform a series of songs in tribute to The Clash. It will happen at Sharkys and should also be a rather enjoyable night. For those more inclined towards contemporary pop, you can catch Musikero at Mao's and Holliday in Cambodia at Paddy Rice. All these gigs happening on the Friday night.

On Saturday, the Teaner Terners will play what will be the last gig at Equinox until September. Chicago Blues aficionado's can catch Little Duke and the Mekong Blues Messengers at Mao's and the Phnom Penh Hippie Orchestra will make a much anticipated return to Sharkys. Cool!

Before I go I leave you with this clip that is by the Palm Sugar Band and is a song called Motodup Check it out - https://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=10150714593880431&oid=226277330738475&comments

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

          Gig Guide - Thursday the 21st of July, 2011


          Yes, the week has rolled around and another weekend of music is coming your way direct from the villages, street and homes of ever-changing Cambodia. You might be still experiencing that middle-of-the-low season lethargy that tends to grip people in the land of the wrong-way drivers but you had better shake it off rather quickly because there are some totally unique and great gigs lined up for this weekend.

          Totally not to be missed gig this weekend will be Scoddy & The Quality Drops on Friday night at Equinox. Be assured that this will be a once-only gig and will feature an irrepressible, irresistible, uncontrollable night of great songs from one of the maestros of the local music scene - Scott Bywater. As some of you already know, Scoddy is leaving the mayhem of Cambodia for a wonderfully wild and crazy flight into a European adventure and a new life. Before he does so though, he is going to treat us all to a great musical voyage through some of the classic Cambodian songs he has performed with the Cambodian Space Project and Espresso Thmei, through some totally beautiful and original ballads, through to some totally wonderful original and  classic Australian rock. Scoddy has assembled this band just for the occassion and I urge you not to miss the gig.

          For those who have not yet enjoyed the pleasurable company and wonderful show presented by the Ukes of Hazzard then you will have your chance this Friday at Sharkys. The array of songs, and the great way they are performed by James and Dylan, aboard two Ukeleles and a Kaoscillator makes for a really great time and ambiance - well worth catching these guys. The Stiff Little Punks will be doing a tribute to the Sex Pistols at the same venue on Saturday night. Cool!

          Dub Addicition have been pumping out a series of great mixes and this week I would like to leave you with a link to their a song recorded live at the premier live music venue in town on July 2nd - Mad Time That's Us. Can't wait for their return later this year.

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

            Gig Guide - Thursday the 14th of July, 2011


            Back on board now after a brief hiatus due to the requirements of outside commitments. Hope everyone is getting stuck into the mid-year workload or is enjoying their sojourn back in their home country. It definitely seems July is a low season for the live music and DJ scene with most venues reporting a slow down in patronage over the past couple of weeks. I guess that makes things a lot better for us still here and able to enjoy the great selection of performers on offer this weekend. 

            Thursday at the Memphis Bar they are celebrating Bastille Day with a collection of French songs by Rock Xpress and probably a line up of special guests. There will be drink specials and a great night to be had no doubt. If you are looking for a relaxing beer tonight with a long list of well performed contemporary ballads and acoustic pop then Holliday in Cambodia are playing at Mao's.

            The same venue will have the wonderful Sysé Swing in action on Friday - so always a great place to get down to do some swing dancing. The re-vamped Lazy Drunks will be playing at Sharkys on Friday night also. These guys keep getting better and better so get down there to get the latest mix. If you are in Siem Reap then you can get into some action at Aqua on this same night with DJ D'Tonn, DJ Matoo and  DJ Island painting the dance-floor with eclictical digital sound-waves.

            Saturday night sees three big acts hitting the best 3 live music venues in town. Little Duke will totally wow the crowd with possibly the best guitar action available in town - totally not to be missed for Chicago blues lovers. He will perform with his band Little Duke and the Mekong Blues Messengers on Saturday at Equinox. This same night Mao's will present the great fusion of Khmer Rap with KlapYaHandz. Good venue with a great act - so get down there. Also, the Teaner Terners will play Sharkys on Saturday night with their unique and grungeable collection of original Indie rock tunes. Cool! 

            Heaps coming up with 2 new performers - Scoddy and The Quality Drops at Equinox (this will be a totally great gig - so keep it in mind) and Never Mind the Bollocks - a Sex Pistols tribute band at Sharkys.I will leave you this week with a video from one of Phnom Penh's favorite live-music artists who can be seen in this video from The Green Mist - see it below:

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