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

Gig Guide - Thursday the 17th of November, 2011


The live music and DJ gigs start tonight (Thursday) when the new vibes continue to emanate from the MetaHouse, produced by the eclectic ensemble known as the X-Pat Sound System. They will be pumping out their Wild Things set. Cool!

Friday sees Dengue Fever's biggest gig of their tour at Koh Pich Building M on Friday starting at 8:00PM. Building M is in fact not a building at all but a very large enclosed tent - making this a semi-indoor/outdoor event. The organizers are looking at around 1000 people with the sound and lights provided by international production engineers ProFeel. Should be a great event. The band has also just recently announced another gig they will do on Sunday at Wat Ang Soeng Pagoda in Takeo. It will be right on the Tonle Bati lake and promises to be a very unique experience. It is only about 40km from Phnom Penh - making it possible for day-trippers from the capital to make this on-off event.

Friday also sees some other great events around the country with Grass Snake Union debuting at the totally unique and totally cool Bodhi Villa in Kampot. This is the same venue where Lost Highway and Dub Addiction played for the Kampot River Music Festival - right on the river. Get there for the weekend if you can. Alternatively, in Siem Reap, CamboJam will rock Pub street at the Banana Leaf. Cool!

This Saturday has quite a packed line-up with the Cambodian Space Project at Mao's and the return of Ritchy & Phil at the Elephant Bar at Le Royal. The FCC Phnom Penh continues with their favorite Latino band - Warapo from Vietnam/Cuba. Sharkys will host The Fumes. You can continue your night out to the wee small hours with the Fruity 009 event happening at the Eighty8 and the GhettoBlasters at Pontoon.

On Tuesday in Sihanoukville the French bass and guitar duo know as At Robieb will play a special set at the brand new Mojo on top of Victory Hill. Cool!

In the Coming Up Section look for a special series of great gigs at Equinox, including the return of Conrad Keely as he play together with two other singer-songwriters in town - TJ Brown and Billy Page. The venue also has the debut of the Durian Funk Band as well as the return of Dub Addiction. All great gigs from a totally happening venue.

Also look out for Kheltival that is a happening from the 1st to the 11th of December, 2011. The festival aims to celebrate the fusion between the Cambodian and the Breton music. The festival will culminate in a concert at Wat Bothum and feature many local bands representing many styles of traditional music. More info as it comes to hand.

I will leave you this week with another great video from the guys at Tuk Tuk Sessions. This is the latest video from the site and the second time they have managed to get a huge international act into a tuk-tuk to do one take in the streets of Cambodia. You can catch the video by clicking on the image below.

From Ted and I here in the back streets of Phnom Penh, have a great weekend, be cool with each other and see you around the traps. Here's this weeks gig-guide.
