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

Gig Guide - Thursday the 5th of January, 2012


The weekend starts tonight with two special performances. One from the one of Phnom Penh best loved musicians, Scoddy, as he makes a return to the land of wrong-way drivers. He will play his special acoustic set of ballads and classic acoustic rock at Rubies on Street 19 starting at 6:00PM. Also look for Scoddy again there next Wednesday when he releases his much anticipated book of written imagery. A Certain Flow is a selection of poems written in Cambodia, France and on the road, published to http://thesilverpepperofthestars.wordpress.com between March and November 2011.

The second performance is the regular Expat SoundSystem gig happening at MetaHouse. This week it features the sounds of DJ Sergey from Berlin who will spin the discs after a great movie on the life and times of Lee Scratch Perry.

Friday sees The Score putting it's hand up for the DJ scene with a Moombahton party. Moombahton is a sub-genre of electronic dance music and it will be extolled to you through the preeminent vibes of DJ Marvolo. For the live music scene you can catch the Lazy Drunks at Sharkys and Musikero at Paddy Rice on the riverfront. There is also a new Comedy night happening at Equinox. This promises to be a fairly special night with much secrecy surrounding the identity of the star of the show.

Saturday sees the return of Tree as he sings his acoustic ballads at the Velkommen Backpackers. This new establishment will most likely be holding a new open mic at some point this year. They are a budget accommodation guest house and are located are in Street 144. Please keep it in mind if you have some friends or family looking for a low-priced centralized accommodation in Phnom Penh. Always a good place for a beer near the riverfront also.

The Teaner Terners return for 2012 at The Cavern this Saturday night also. Cool! This gig will now be covered by the Ukes of Hazard due to illness of one of the members of the Teaner Terners.

Huge amount of gigs coming up at Equinox this month. This includes a very special gig indeed at Professor Kinski teams up with special guests from the U.S. Indradevi. Ssssschmokin'!

Before I go, a few songs from the veritable razor's-edge of Cambodian electronic music:

Cambodian Space Project Remixes by Professor Kinski by profkinski

DUB ADDICTION - Cambodias Number One Ragga Dub Band by profkinski

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.
