Gig Guide - Friday the 13th of July, 2012


All the rain of the past few days - wow! I would hesitate to say that it is relatively unusual for this time of year and , personally I am predicting a very wet Wet season. It's not stopping the music however and it might inspire a few changes to some set-lists.

You will be able to catch a couple of new acts at Sharkys on Friday and Holliday in Cambodia return to give you a few huge and dance-able sets at Equinox. Also, lots coming from Paddy Rice again in this weeks gig guide with Musikero this weekend and Kheltica next weekend. I

DJ scene-wise we have DJ Orawan visiting from Bangkok. She has many credits to her resume, including playing along side Fatboy Slim, Goldie and touring with King Kapisi. Should be a great couple of gigs this weekend.

Also, make sure you catch Rhiannon Johnson and Euan Gray this weekend. They are performing a regular gig on Wednesdays now at the RiverHouse Bistro (not to be confused with the Riverside Bistro) located downstairs from the RiverHouse Lounge. It is billed as a business-to-business networking situation and the duo make a cool and inspiring atmosphere for the event. They can also be heard at another regular gig at The Quay Hotel on Thursdays. They also play at the Artillery Cafe this Friday night. A gig for all the senses.

In other news, keep your eyes open for a brand new dedicated live music venue that will open up later this year on the corner of Norodom and Street 360. It will be managed by Ritchy & Phil and will feature a range of local and visiting musical performers. Cool! Also, if you find yourself wondering around the vicinity of the Heart of Darkness this weekend then pop across the road and call into the new Sticky Fingers Art Prints shop. It has a range of musically-inspired prints and T-shirts and the likes. Totally cool!

Thursday the 12th of July, 2012 marked the 50th anniversary of the first ever Rolling Stones gig. It was was held at a place in London called The Marquee way back in 1962. Amazing to think, at ages approaching 70, that they are still jamming and possibly planning a new album. Little Duke's theory is that they have absolutely no idea what else to do with all their time and money. Who knows – may be they will tour Cambodia before they hit their 100. In the mean time you will be able to get all the outrageous Kieth Richards guitar licks extolled through the plectrum of local telecaster master James “JJ” Jessup at Stoned Again's next wholly anticipated gig. Here is a video to celebrate the occasion.

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.
