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

Gig Guide - Thursday the 26th of April, 2012


Well, it's Friday night that offers local music enthusiasts their greatest choice this weekend with 8 gigs but Saturday is not far behind with 7 with a couple of gigs finishing off the weekend on Sunday.

Friday sees a special gig at The Willow when Amanda Bloom once again teams up with the roots/folk quartet of the Kampot Playboys. This same combination played together at the MetaHouse some weeks back and were totally cool - despite the venue's terrible acoustics. Given a venue with good acoustics I would could imagine a totally outstanding performance.

The Teaner Terners are back in the capital this weekend and are raring it up for two totally smokin' gigs this weekend. The first happens at Equinox  on Friday and it will be packed and pumping. On Saturday the band moves across town to do a benefit gig for the Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center.

This second event actually starts on the Friday with the return of the much missed Rolling Stones tribute band and recently renamed Stoned Again (formerly Captain Jack, formerly the Stone Daddies). Fans of the original band will not be disappointed with the great work of JJ on guitar and Chick Jagger out the front on vocals. The band will be ably supported by the brand new all-girl band - the Herding Cats. A total musical feast as well as some prizes to be won and auctioned off apparently.

Saturday see's another special gig by the totally wonderful duo of Ritchy & Phil. They will appear at the Red Apron at the earlier time of 7:00PM. they will be presenting a "sweet Brazilian jazz mood celebrating the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim, Caetano Veloso, Joao Gilberto & Ivan Lins". Cool! Later on that evening you can dance the floor at Equinox as the Phnom Penh Hippie Orchestra return with their unique blend of eastern European folk - presented to you with up to 10 instruments or more.

On Sunday you might want to get down to the Riverhouse Bar & Bistro who are presenting a great ensemble which has recently be gaining in popularity. It is the Euan Gray Band and features Australian saxophonist and songwriter Euan Gray together with the members of GTS Jazz. Very much worth a Sunday evening wine or 2.

Lookout for coming gigs with a HUGE gig at Pontoon featuring Gobshite, KlapYaHandz and Tiny Toones as well as several international DJs. The Alley Cat Cafe will be celebrating Cinco de Mayo on the 5th of May with a special outfit of the CSP. Also, all musicians are reminded about the Musicians Sessions at Equinox on the first Monday of every month (click here for details).

I will leave you this week with another totally great video by Gobshite - totally well put together:

Also, most of you with the right contacts on Facebook would have seen this video already, however I include the extended version here just in case you haven't. It is the latest video by the band and is of their original song  Have Visa No Have Rice and features excerpts from Bum N Draze and their original 'release' called Sickville.

Also, a SoundCloud mix tape track from DJ Illest from 2011.

Also, another SoundCloud track from Gobshite and Disebeats.

Finally a tribute to the passing this week of Levon Helm.

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 week's gig-guide.
