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

Gig Guide - Thursday the 24th of November, 2011


MetaHouse kicks off the live music weekend again this week with Professor Kinski on Thursday with the release of his Cambodian Space Project remix album HUMMER H3. Should be a huuuuuge night and it will include remixed tracks of Pou Khlaing, Heng Bunleap, Meng Bunlo, Srey Thy and MC Curly. Cool! The weekend is also covered by the recently reconfigured GTS Jazz Mesh which has had to make some changes due to an injury to their irreplaceable bass player. The ensemble plays Thursday at Le Moon (atop K-West), Friday at the Sofitel Lobby and Saturday at Le Jardin - with both Thursday and Saturday being early starts. I think everyone here in the local live music scene is wishing Sebastian a speedy recovery.

Live music returns to Street 104 this week as The Cavern hosts the Alice Cooper tribute band, Muscle of Love. A good venue and band bulging in local talent - if you are into Alice and his genre then you have just got to get down there this Friday night.

The other HUGE and unmissable Friday gig is the full debut of a brand new funk band called Durian who will play at Equinox. They consist of a large number of members (12 I believe) and have a horn section reminiscent of the Mekong Pirates. Probably the gig of the week - so get down there for it!

On Saturday you can enjoy the big-bellied bluegrass of Grass Snake Union at Sharkys. Always a great band to which to non-stop dance, drink lots of beer and have a totally great time. Also look out for the Siem Reap Japanese Dance Festival which will occur this Sunday in Siem Reap.

Look out in coming weeks for the opening of 3 new live music venues - all within coo-ee of each other in Daun Penh. The first will be the Latin Quarter which is located in the totally beautiful French colonial building on the corner of Streets 19 and 178. They will be partying during their opening on the 3rd of December with the hugely popular Latino band from Vietnam known as Bad Neighbors. One to look for next weekend. Also look for the Friendship Festival in Battambang as well as several international gigs at Pontoon and a debut by the Teaner Terners at the Greenhouse in Kampot.

I will leave you this weekend with a collection of video's that so totally rocks and drives the local live music scene - even today, more than 40 years on. Nothing has come near these songwriters and performers since this time and we can all bask in their wonderful music and still get up and dance and move around. Enjoy them.

Jis Cyclo - Yos Olarang


Kong Pol Tmai Cheung Ti 12 - Leing Thet 


Rom Ago Ago - Pan Ron
