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

Gig Guide - Thursday the 10th of November, 2011


A real quick and early blurb this week as Ted, I and Ted's Mum are heading up to Mondulkirri to catch some local Khmer Leu music. We will report on that in later gig guides.

The exceptional news this week is the imminent return of Khmer 60's rock exponents, Dengue Fever, who will play a series of gigs - starting at the first level of the FCC Phnom Penh this Saturday night. Cool! That will be followed by gigs in Kampot, Siem Reap and Battambang and finally by the hugest gig at Koh Pich on Friday the 18th of November. Tickets for this final event will be US$10 and can be purchased from the Bong Thom dot Com office - near the corner of Norodom and Russian Boulevardes (map) - as well as other significant venues.

Another of Cambodia's favorite bands in the irrepressible and totally psychedelic rockin' Cambodian Space Project who will play a special gig at the little known Fun Planet on Street 19 on Tuesday the 8th and another special gig as they return to La Croisette on the night of the 11th - this Friday. Totally great!

If you are in Kampong Som for the weekend then you will be lucky enough to be able to get to Ocheuteal Beach and be a part of the Wave Dance Music Festival. There is little chance that this will not be a total blast - with some of the countries best DJs and supported with live music from Musikero and Thmor.

On Saturday you could make the short journey over to Kampot and catch the garnd opening party of the GreenHouse - which formerly housed Maxines (Snow's Bar) before making the trip south. The great time will be engineered by Professor Kinski, MC Curley and DJ Klah. Bound to be a totally great time and I urge you to get there. You can hang around and catch the Dengue Fever concert at the Epic Arts Center the next day. Cool!

Next Tuesday don't forget the huge line-up of bands at Titanic who will come together in support of victims of the recent flooding. The concert will now also feature the huge new funk band known as Durian - one not to miss.

Other signicant gigs this weekend include AntiFate who will play Equinox  and Big Time who play Sharkys. Boith these gigs happening on the Saturday night.

No excuse to have a totally great time this weekend. but please remember, if you are traveling on the roads this weekend to be extra careful. The roads are definitely the most dangerous things in Cambodia - so take it easy, enjoy the weekend and get back home safe and sound with a whole load of great live music and DJ gigs stories for next week.

I will leave you this week with a couple of videos - both from the bands best known for their elucidation of Khmer 60ws rock to the western audience. Catch both bands around the traps in Cambodia this week and next.

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