Gig Guide - Thursday the 27th of September, 2012


Some quality gigs lined up for this weekends gig guide. Cool!

The passionate keys, lyrics and vocals of Amanda Bloom teams up with the effervescent Up To You Mango at the Willow to start off the weekend. I am not sure if the performers will be playing together but it would be worth checking out to see what manifests. The Willow has a laid-back atmosphere and is a cool place to hang out with good music. Euan Gray and his saxophone will be extolling the virtues of Retro Jazz at the Artillery Cafe to also start the weekend..

Not far from there the Bouchon Bar will be celebrating the first anniversary since opening. The celebration will be done in the style of a collection of five prominent performers combining for a show of totally pleasurable quality. This is also a cool place to hang out and enjoy a wine. The live music will be followed up with a DJ set by DJ Juveris

At Equinox on Friday you can catch the return of The Fumes. The band will be presenting some new covers of 80s, 90s and 00's. If you haven't seen the band for a while then get down to see the new smokin' line-up and set list. Musikero also make a return to Paddy Rice on Friday night. Cool!

Saturday sees a totally eclectic mix of gigs - from classical to acoustic jazz to Latin to Hip-Hop and dance to rock. No excuses for not getting out there and seeing something that moves your heart and soul to the rhythms of the local music scene. One of the most prominent of these gigs will be the eight bands put on by Sharkys as the bands battle it out to win a $200 prize money. The gigs pits the Khmer bands against the expat bands. Should be a night fully of heavy competition and great quality rock. Expect a packed venue.

Another auspicious Saturday night gig will be at Equinox as the put on a Tiny Toones benefit party. Tiny Toones is a drop-in center for disadvantaged children and youth in Cambodia. The night will feature some of the countries best rappers and break-dancers and combine with a couple of happening DJ sets. There will also be a special appearance by Kosal Khiev. Please be aware that there will be a $4 entrance fee ($2 for Khmer) for this gig.

Saturday night also sees the official opening of the Sticky Fingers Art Prints at Shop 29 of the Golden Soriya Mall (across the road from the Heart of Darkness). The opening will feature a couple of sets from the Cambodian Space Project followed up by some DJ sets. Cool!.

Also, from our Breaking News department, we have been informed that elusive band Krom will finally debut live on the evening of the 20th of October, 2012 on the prime time CTN show Entertainment Tonight Concert. The appearance will feature an interview with Krom vocalist Sophea Chamroeun followed by a live performance of 3 songs from the Krom album Songs from the Noir. Super cool!

This week a couple of videos of what to expect around various traps this weekend. The second of which was kindly provided by Sonny Inbaraj Krishnan. Make sure to watch the whole video as it really starts smokin' as the song moves along.

Also, check out this great video from Tiny Toones.

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.
