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

Gig Guide - Thursday the 12th of January, 2012


Well, I am here to tell you that the festive season completely disappeared now and you have to get your head down and stuck into a lot of work for the coming year.......................... that is apart from the weekends of course when you can just get out there and dance, laugh and party. Whoooo- hooooooooo!!!

The great news this weekend is the return to the capital of those most enjoyable proponents of obscure favorites - El Dealbreakers . They are set to hit the stage in the capital twice this weekend with their first show at Equinox on Friday night followed by a follow-up gig at the FCC Phnom Penh on Saturday night. El Dealbreakers are totally worth catching. They play a mixture of non-confrontational Tex-Mex, Cajun, Polka-billy and do it with a Mexican 10-string guitar called a bajo quinto (very cool), an accordion, a fiddle and a collection of other wind instruments that punch-out chunks of the rhythm and green's back-beat and melody.

Sharkys have a collection of bands on this weekend, including the return of the Muscle of Love on Saturday night and a double act of the Lazy Drunks and Muck Muck and the Zombies on Friday the 13th night.

The DJ scene certainly carries the show this weekend with DJ Cut Killer at Pontoon on Friday night being the feature gig for the weekend.

In coming weeks look for the special appearance of Jerry Joseph as he  and calls into Cambodia teams up with Frank Roffolo on his south-east Asian tour. Not to be missed. Also, the Art+ Foundation is back online with a series of gigs at MetaHouse. Equinox will have their 6th anniversary party in a couple of weeks - which will be a total blast.

Leaving you this week with a very special video of a great rockin' song from a famous band from the 1980's. It features the talents of one of Phnom Penh's most influential and best known rock & roll musicians. The first person who can identify the said talent and email me the answer will win a Leng Pleng T-shirt and a Leng Pleng beer cooler. See the video below.

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