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

Gig Guide - Thursday the 22nd of March, 2012


A big weekend of swing coming this week with the PPPSwings hosting the inaugural 'Lindy Exchange' for Phnom Penh. This means some of the countries best jazz, blues and swing ensembles will be able to be seen be playing at various venues around town. Additionally you will be able to see some great swing dancing as well as joining in the dancing yourself. The event kicks off at Equinox tonight with Mama Swing. On Saturday afternoon there will be a totally awesome Blues Cruise with the irrepressible Bayon Blues followed by the wonderful Syse' Swing at Le Moon. On Sunday the event continues at the FCC Phnom Penh with Ritchy and Phil. More details available here - http://www.clx2012.com/.

It will be a busy weekend for Ritchy & Phil as they also do a soft-opening for the brand new ARTillery Cafe on Friday night as well as a jazzy, crooning gig at the Red Apron on Saturday night. The ARTillery Cafe will have their official opening on the Sunday evening when Amanda Bloom and Andy Hawkins will provide the music for, what should be, a relatively auspicious event.

Another potentially regular event will be on tonight (Thursday) at the open-mic at the Cafe Mith Samlanh when then CCF host the Cabaret Francophone. Musicians welcome to register to play on the night.

The "King of Fruit" returns to Equinox this weekend when Durian, the funk band, play a night of totally pumping classic funk. Get down to see them this weekend. Also playing with them that night will be Khmerican returnee Kosal Kiev. Cool!

Looking for a great musical feast over a beer on Saturday ? At 7:30PM at the Velkommen Backpackers will be well worth calling in on  with the Lazy Drunks  in full force. Later that same night the mind-blowing Khmer guitar work and classic rock from Oscar's Band can be seen and heard at Sharkys. If you are on the south coast then you could try the latest Goa Pirates Production Party in Sihanoukville near Ochheuteal Beach (see http://www.goatrance.de/goabase/party/details/65775 for more details).

Heaps coming up, including more Francophone inspired gigs at Memphis, the return of the Cambodian Space Project, the PSE Charity Party and the celebration of the 20th anniversary of CCF which will feature a concert by renowned reggae star Naby. A video of Naby can be seen below.

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.
