Gig Guide - Thursday the 3rd of February, 2011

Hey,

A re-vamp of the gig guide this week with the live music and DJ gigs being put together now under each day. They are distinguishable by the icon which preceeds each gig. A being a gig that includes live music and a being a gig that includes a DJ. If you have any comments about the layout then please feel free to let me know.

There is a great gig on this Friday at Sharky bar featuring the debuts of two new bands. The first is Soren Borch and the Dudley Do-Rights who play a variety of blues, folk, country, bluegrass, gospel, jazz, rockabilly, and other forms of good-time upbeat music. Cool! The other new band is Little Duke and the Mekong Blues Messengers who play a totally great mix of full-on electrified Chicago blues. Everyone will  surely be treated to some totally smokin' guitar work form the local master of the slide guitar - Little Duke. Be assured - fans of this genre should not miss this gig.

Sunday sees the return of the irrepressible, immimicable, uncontainable duo D'Sco: The Geckos of Love. They will be playing at the jGallery together with an exhibition of live painting by live drawing with Keeda Oikawa - more details here.

Another opportunity for a great party will happen in Ta Khmau on Sunday afternoon at the Waitangi Day celebrations. Waitangi Day is New Zealand's national day and the party will involve a hungi (a traditional - and totally delicious - meal), live music and drinks. The live music will be provided by a number of local and visiting musicians and it is also an open mic and therefore all musicians are fully invited to participate. If you do then you are sure to receive a free meal and lots of free beer. The Waitangi Day party is famous for a great time and is well attended by hundreds of people - great place to network and to play to an appreciative audience. See the link below for a map and more details.

The Electric Eclectic Limelight Jukebox Jam at Paddy Rice is still drawing a big crowd so get down there and see the ensemble tonight. Lots of totally great DJ gigs over the weekend so no excuses for staying home. Look out for the Stanton Warriors at Pontoonnext week.

Gig Guide - Thursday the 27th of January, 2011

Hey,

Before anything in this week gig guide newsletter I would like to bring your attention to the services now on offer by Mr. Anthony Mrugacz. Anthony has over 30 years experience and is well versed in any sound or lighting services that you might need for any performance, gig or event. This includes:
  • Live concert sound engineering
  • Live concert audio recording- up to 6 tracks
  • Studio recording and post production audio services
  • Stage management for events
  • Small equipment repair
  • Custom design audio, microphone, & recording solutions
  • or any problem with audio which is impossible to solve in Cambodia
He can be contacted by email using jomrarn (at sign goes here) gmail.com, by phone on 092 821700 or through his web site at http://sites.google.com/site/anthonymrugacz/

The initial details for Sharky's Penhstock II festival have been released and, at this point, they are looking at presenting 18+ bands across 3 days! It is may be the largest musical event ever presented in Cambodia for the expat community. Cool! It will occur on Friday, Saturday and Sunday the 24th, 25th and 26th of February, 2011. More details are available hereThe exact times and dates for the different acts will be posted as they come to hand.

Other big news is the arrival, for the first time, of Cambodian-American singer/songwriter Laura Mam and her all-girl band the Like Me's. They will be playing to a packed audience at the Parkway Studios on Thursday the 3rd of March, 2011. An example of her work, and a tribute to Pan Ron, can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBVNnBLFHnA .

If you haven't had a chance to get down to see El Dealbreakers then you will have only this weekend to catch them. Please note that the gig at the Chinese House has been canceled due to unavoidable logistical considerations and so there are only 3 gigs left - tonight at 3Rivers, and 2 gigs on Saturday at the CCF Agenda Special Party and later at Paddy Rice. If you are not sure of what they do then check out this offering of a live recording http://www.eldealbreakers.com/audio/pressuredrop.mp3 !

The gig at CCF mentioned above will be worth catching, not only because El Dealbreakers will have their full brass section (including the the bass-line tuba) but also because the Mekong Pirates will be presenting their new line-up before the much anticipated release of their first album. Also the brand new Sycé Swing will also be on show.

Also, lovers of indie-rock should not miss the Teaner Terners playing at Sharkys this Saturday night, lovers of Celtic/folk have the irrepressible sounds of Kheltica at the FCC on Saturday night and lovers of Mississippi delta blues should catch the debut of the Bayon Blues at the FCC Phnom Penh on Friday night. If you are looking for a harder rock version - akin to the Rolling Stones - then get down to see Captain Jack at The Cavern on Friday night. Cool!

Gig Guide - Thursday the 20th of January, 2011

Hey,

Back from a sojourn in the Philippines and happy to return to a new, vibrant and happening scene in the land of smiles and wrong-way drivers. Hope everyone had a great New Years and looking forward to a bigger and better 2011.

Already there are several new bands to the music scene here with the introduction of Soren Borch and The Dudley Do-Rights, who I believe have played a couple of times already around the traps - such as Setsara and Paddy Rice. Studio 182 have welcomed back Jus' Cynthia who will put on a special performance this Friday with blues harmonica maestro Mr. Nash. These two, together with the Studio 182 house band, will present a night of classic blues tunes from Muddy Waters, B.B. King, Ray Charles, T.Bone Walker and more.

There is also the new swing ensemble, Sycé Swing, who will be playing at Equinox tonight as a backdrop for the Phnom Penh Swings dance club - well worth getting down if you are looking for a place to meet a lot great people and get your feet moving to a to a great sound.

The sound of "rythym and greens" inundates the gig guide this week as El Dealbreakers tour the country. They have been playing Kep, Kampot and Sihanoukville this past week and will come to Phnom Penh this weekend to first play at the FCC Phnom Penh on Friday and Saturday nights and then also an earlier sunset gig at Maxines (Snows Bar) on Sunday evening. It will be worth catching this band at least a couple of times. If you can't get to see them this weekend then they will also play a few gigs next weekend (and some possibly in-between - stay tuned). 

Another gig to get to this weekend will be at Equinox for their 5th Anniversary Party which will occur on Saturday night. This will feature the totally great Bayon Blues trio who will perform a collection of traditional blues songs. They are fronted by the totally clear melodies extolled through the vocals of Kristen Rasumussen and the wonderful roots finger-picking and slide from Jonas Hastings. They will start the party at 7:00PM and will be followed as 9:00PM by KlapYaHandz and DJ Gang who will really get the place happening. These DJs will be joined by famous hip-hop artists Makinen and with members of Los Poporks - so it should prove to be a totally outrageously great party night.

After the Equinox party it will be possible for you to head down to the brand new Pontoon venue on Street 172. The house will be most definitely packed for this one with Akill the MC (j5) touting the beats. The venue will have their grand re-awakening tonight also with DJ Gang, DJ Blue and DJ Illest at the Back wid a Bang party - should be HUUUUUGE!

For a those of you with a more laid-back appeal you can catch the  Jazz for Kids at Le Jardin on Sunday or the classical music events on at MetaHouse on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. 

All-in-all it should be another great weekend of great live music and DJ gigs so get out there and have a great time. Here's this week's gig guide.
