Gig Guide - Thursday the 2nd of August, 2012


Hibernation mode for several venues hits the music scene as we move into August. Drudgery...................! 

Metahouse is certainly not one of them with the venue offering a veritable smörgåsbord of quality, boutique gigs this weekend. Whoo-hooooo! They start off tonight (Thursday) with a combination of three musical events. Firstly the rare return of the classical music of Anton Isselhardt and colleagues as they present a "celebration of Frederick the Great". This is preceded by a film that explores the life of the legendary punk queen Patti Smith, which is then followed by a couple of DJ sets by the X-Pat-SoundSystem guys - this week featuring American Punk and New Wave music. The venue continues the music the following night (Friday) with the Gabi Faja Trio in their interpretations of the music of King Noradom Sihanouk. On Saturday night a full on DJ set will be presented by the Kimchi Collective of DJ Cyncity, DJ Dan Beck and DJ Balaton & BFox. Cool! See links below for more details on each of these gigs.

Other live music gigs of note is the regular Lazy Drunks at Sharkys as well as Oscar's Band that return to the venue again this week. Also, there is a special session with Ritchy Boisson, Sebastien Adnot and Sam the Mandolin Man at The Red Apron on Saturday night. Cool!

DJ scene-wise, the Riverhouse Lounge ramps-up the sexiness volume to turn you on to their Night at the Playboy Mansion event that features DJ Yukie from Thailand.

Also, don't forget the gigs by Up 2u Mango in Kampot next weekend.

I leave you this week with a totally groovy video from the camera, keyboard, hard-drive and the poetic, stylish and sublime mind of Scott Bywater. He has produced a series of great videos which he has shared across various social networking sites. The videos show the Cambodian Space Project as they traveled and played across Spain, France and England last month. The videos are backed by a great selection of Khmer 60s rare rock classics and is an enjoyable and insightful way to view the trials and tribulations of the bands ventures through the continent. The video below is from their latest trek to their gig in London.

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.
