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

Gig Guide - Thursday the 8th of December, 2011


That's right - yet another week has rolled around and you are being subjected to the sometimes incoherent and misspelled ramblings of the weekly Leng Pleng live music and DJ wrap.

Durian will take their totally dance-able couple sets to the Memphis Pub tonight as they ramp up the funk and get the whole town pumping for the second time in a week. A great band full of great talent. A few blocks further south near "Booding" is the MetaHouse where their regular DJ nights are having a somewhat Flemish flavor tonight (Thursday). They will feature a number of Belgian DJs as the Belgian Beats SoundSystem that will follow two screenings by Tom Barman (front man of the band dEUS). They will be serving Belgian beers too! Oh yeah my favorite!

The huge event known as the Friendhip Festival is on again this year over this weekend. It is featuring a great lineup of local acts - including Dub Addiction, DJ Chase, DJ Matoo, DJ Gorimaa, DJ Edwardowski, Preap Sovath and Khemara Sereymon. Before you get too excited though - you need to be in Battambang to enjoy this spectacle. Don't forget it is a long weekend - making the multiple hour trip a lot more bearable from wherever you may be around the country. Cool!

If you are in Siem Reap on Friday then you can partake in the opening of a brand new music venue known as the Mezze Bar. It will be the DJ maestro Marco Anthony spinning the tunes.

Sharkys have got a HUGE couple of weekends lined up for us in the local music scene cementing themselves as one of the best music venues in town - definitely the best when it comes to rock & roll. They start this Friday with the Lazy Drunks - who have got to have one of the mirthful series of flyers for a band that I have ever seen. Not really what I would call a great way to sell the band but luckily most of us know what they mean and that they put out is a great couple of sets of classic British and U.S. rock. 

On Saturday the venue has invited Little Duke and the Mekong Blues Messengers back for a return of last weeks performance. Anyone that was at that gig would know why - Little Duke was absolutely smokin' on his light blue Telecaster and the multiple calls for encore at the end couldn't be fulfilled due to the time restrictions placed on the venue by the local constabulary. Totally worth getting to see this band.

Next weekend the venue will celebrate 16 years. They will do so with the habitual return of the Curtis King Band. These guys come over for this gig from Vietnam every year and always put on a good show. The sight of Leroy slithering and cavorting on the bar is enough to put anyone off their beer - but at least it makes for a unique and enjoyable performance. They will play both nights next weekend together with special guest Juram.

Also the next few weeks is looking great as Conrad Keely returns to the Kingdom - playing Equinox and MetaHouse. The Equinox gig should be particularly awesome as it will combine Conrad with two other acoustic singer-songwriters - TJ Brown from Grass Snake Union and Billy Page - over from Vietnam. Cool!

There are a number of Christmas gigs (Teaner Terners at Sharkys and Sliten6ix and Anti-Fate at Equinox) and New Years gigs (DJ K'Dam at Equinox, DJ Gang at the FCC Phnom Penh and the Lazy Drunks at Sharkys) coming up - so don't miss out on those if you are in the country.

Next year look out for the totally anticipated and wonderful return of El Dealbreakers who will be playing around the traps in January. Also the Lazy Drunks start a series of regular gigs at the Red Orchid.

I leave you this week with another taste of what you might find at Pontoon with Drop the Lime performing there this Friday.

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.
