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

Gig Guide - Thursday the 8th of November, 2012


I'm definitely not busy - I got passed busy about 4 days ago. Where I am at in terms of busy-ness there has not been a word in English yet defined. Always got time for the gig guide and the great music coming out of the bars, clubs and restaurants around Cambodia's major urban centers though ;o)

This week sees the return of everyone's favourite son - Scoddy. Fresh off the plane on a sojourn from the cooler climes of France, Scoddy will definitely delight you with his great acoustic renditions of originals and covers from ballads to rhythmy rock&roll. It will almost certainly be a packed house so get down there early. The performance starts at 6:00PM at Rubies Wine Bar.

Elyxir are now also catering to those who enjoy a nice wine, a swimming pool, a relaxing garden and some cool cool jazz. This week they will feature a great line-up featuring the vocals of Rhiannon Johnson. Look for Rhiannon soon too as she has now joined the new line-up of the Durian Funk Band and will play at Equinox early next month. Cool!

For something more rapid, dancey, and bluegrassy see the Grass Snake Union this weekend. Take your pick (or go both nights) as the band will be playing two gigs this weekend - Friday night at Paddy Rice and Saturday night at Equinox. Totally great night with these guys playing.

The Kampot Peppers play Sharkys on Friday. Totally great blues band these guys. Great laid-back rhythms with a totally untroubled feel. If you are in Kampot this weekend then get to the Naga House on Saturday night as the Kampot Playboys together with Rendezvous will be playing. Great atmosphere and right on the river.

If you are in Siem Reap and you like old-time rock & roll then you have got to be at the X-Bar on Friday night at 8:30PM. There is a a charity band called the A-Band touring south-east Asia  and one look at the flyer will tell you why you have got to be there.

Nothing swiped from the Internet this week in terms of videos or MP3s - my apologies. I will try to make up for it next week - but I can't see things slowing down yet.

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.
