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

Gig Guide - Thursday the 16th of August, 2012


Gigs coming from around the major urban centers again this week. The Fumes have hit the south coast and the beach and will play at Sihanoukville's best known dedicated live music venue - The Led Zephyr - on Friday and Saturday. In Kep on Friday the annual Kep Jungle Dance is being hosted by the Kep Lodge and features the high profiling DJs Dr. Wah Wah, DJ Moodydann and Phat Controller. Cool!

Cambodia's best mango-psycho ensemble return from, what was - from all accounts - an awesome weekend in Kampot. They will be refreshed and renamed as Wisconsin Mango for a gig at Paddy Rice on Friday night. They will also probably include some special guests that will come up and jam with them too apparently. Cool md'awng tee-uht!

Also on Friday night, Pontoon will feature the totally super sexy and sultry and Sarah Love - a international club DJ, musician, writer, producer, journalist and BBC presenter. Expect a Hip-Hop and Afro-Pop mix and more. Super cool!

Sharkys are hosting two bands again this week. They will again host the Khmer rock band Oscar's Band on Friday and Little Duke and the Mekong Blues Messengers on Saturday night. The second gig also includes a Rib Cook-Off which starts at 6:00PM. Smokin'!

If you are in Siem Reap then you can get to The Warehouse and catch Gaz & Rob. They are billed as "raw root covers and original songs that features guitars, bongos, vocal harmonies and Gaz’s didgeridoo!". 

Some news coming from Kampot is about a new live music venue. It is called the ABC Bar (A art B bar C craze) and is located one block from the riverfront and next to the newly renovated market. They have live music every Tuesday and Saturday night featuring their in-house band The Pistolinas. Worth checking out definitely.

I will leave you this week with a couple of features from the hard drive of Mr. Anthony Mrugacz, manager of Equinox, and sound-engineer extraordinaire. This week Anthony has provided both video and an MP3 sound track from the Little Duke and the Mekong Blues Messengers gig of last week.

Make sure you get about 25 minutes into this video so at you can check out the music ;o). This video comes from the live stream that the venue has now made available for all it's live music gigs.

Also check-out this video of an interview with Sarah Love.

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.
