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

Gig Guide - Week Starting Thursday the 25th of April, 2013


The comment of "high-teens" I passed a couple of weeks ago is certainly not holding up this week. More than 32 unique gigs in this week's guide. That doesn't include the Regular Gigs (you can see them within the right-hand-side section of the web site or at the bottom of the weekly email) and if you include those then there are total of about 55 live music, open-mics and DJ events on around the country this week. Totally smokin'!

Thursdays are are the new Fridays local-music-gig-guide-ly speaking. Six gigs on tonight (Thursday), not the least of which is Sylvie singing at the Opera Cafe. Personally I totally enjoy this venue very much as it has a good location and cool atmosphere right within the hustle and bustle of Daun Penh. Mix that with some great keys, vocals, beers, wines and friends and there you have yourself a great night out. be patient with the service as they are only recently opened. The gorgeous Rhiannon Johnson plays again with her quartet at The Village this same night and Diego Dimarques makes another Gypsy Rumba performance at The Doors. Various DJ gigs round out the day at the RiverHouse, MetaHouse and Tepui.

There are a few new performers this week. Mississippi Skip George, Smokin' Kenny Smith and Frisco Tony team up at MetaHouse for a unique early gig on Friday. This starts at 6:00PM and is followed by a movie shot in Kampot by one of the ensembles members. After this you can enjoy the bass:session versus Dub Club gig upstairs. The unsurpassed quality jazz of Kin Jazz is also a relatively new ensemble and features members from GTS Jazz together with Euan Gray. The band will play Friday at the Doors.

Equinox have two gigs on this weekend. On Saturday the best funk band in town will play their last gig. They are of course Durian Funk Band and they will be starting at about 9:00PM. Get down there. On Friday the original tunes of Jerby Santos and Jaworski 7 can be heard. Also a great band of which to dance and enjoy.

Sharkys also present two bands this weekend with the return of the Kampot Peppers on Saturday being the highlight. This band features the cruisey sliding blues from Shawn Miller on guitar. A must see for blues aficionados.

Other gigs of note this weekend include Station to Station at Paddy Rice and a new ensemble, Jet Set, who play at the Village on Saturday night. Le Jardin on Street 360 continue there early Friday live music sessions this week with Sophie Rose Lewis and Ziad Samman. A great place for food and drink straight from work. The Showbox is having an Afro Swag party this Friday - it starts at 10:00PM. Also look for a couple of gigs of British pop from Ritchy & Phil this weekend. On Sunday DJ Sequence and the Kimchi Collective play their most special of DJ sets on the riverfront at the Quay Hotel. Cool!

After more than one and a half years in production the new Dub Addiction album has finally been officially released through international label MetalPostcards. Of exceptional quality and all original and locally-driven songs, I totally urge you to get a copy. You can get yours by clicking the picture below:

Also, soon to hit Phnom Penh will be relatively huge international band The Rooftops. They hail from Australia and are the band led by Euan Gray. Should be totally awesome.

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.
