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

Gig Guide - Week Starting Thursday the 23rd of May, 2013

Your regular weekend wrap driver back at the wheel again this week with news of another totally smokin' weekend of  outrageously cool gigs.

Sylvie will take her totally gorgeous, smokey vocals to the Opera Cafe again this week as she joins Gabi on the keys. Another musical duet can be heard at The Village when Linnette Chhun Charm on the keys and Charlie Corrie on the guitar as Lady & the Tramp. At Sharkys you can catch DJ Flipper as he adds a musical vibe to the venue's Ladies Night. All of these gigs happening tonight (Thursday).

Friday sees the wonderfulness of The Klezbodians as they bring their special brand of eastern European Klezmer music to The Village. Expect a write-up of this performer from our roving gig reporter in the next few days. The same day sees the totally great David Bowie tribute band, Station to Station, move to Le Jardin. The venue is starting a series of early gigs - this one starts at 7:30PM. They also serve deliriously delicious meals and have a play area for the kids - so you can head down there and grab a table and get some quality sounds of the Thin White Duke. Metahouse continue their series of underground DJ parties with the Invisible Agent DJs.   

Equinox turns it on again this weekend with The Fumes on Friday and Two Shots and a Chaser on Saturday night. Two quality bands at a totally quality venue. As always, if you cannot actually get to the gig or want to catch some before you go then the venue always has its live stream online avaialble at gig time. You can hook in at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/live-music-at-equinox-cambodia.

Sharkys will be invaded by the Cambodian headbangers this weekend when the venue hosts another chapter of the Cambodian Headbangers Ball, this time featuring regulars Sliten6ix, the Anti-Fate, and Varaman, as well as newcomers Asylum of Angels and TBN (presumable standing for "to be named"  ;o)). Anyway, should be a totally great night for all local headbangers and sundry. On Saturday night the venue hosts the totally great and professional sounds of Sugar Daddy. Always a great night of music with Chris, Smokin' Kenny and the boys. Cool!  

A special, early gig on Saturday occurs at the Hotel Intercontinental when two international classical musicians take to the stage - one being former Miss Universe Japan and soprano Satomi Ogawa and the other being world acclaimed pianist Julian Garglulo. Later that same night, but in Kep, you can catch a very special gig indeed when DJs Dr. Wah Wah and Phat Controller will fill an old Kep villa with an extraordinary show of lights and sound. Totally worth the trip to the south coast if you are not already there.  

That is not where it ends, however, because on Sunday there are three very definite special gigs. The most auspicious will be the much anticipated return to the land of the wrong-way drivers of Norwegian composer Ingolv Haaland. Ingolv will initiate his keys together with an electronic mix instrument and team toegther with Ouch Savy and Yun Theara on traditional Cambodia instrumentation. Definitely a gig for lovers of the traditional, the contemporary and the electronic. A very special gig of unique proportions. It can be experienced at MetaHouse this Sunday at 6:30PM.

If you looking for something on the other end of the mind-bending rainbow then send a text message to Kanha Paula on Sunday to get the location of the latest secret party. Otherwise head to Le Jardin where you can catch the classic blues-country-rock vocals and acostic guitar of Jet Orderir.  

And, of course, the music continues everyday all the way through until next Wednesday and beyond. This includes a new regular movie night now showing every Tuesday at Le Jardin and which, this week, features a special musical accompaniment by James Speck. 

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.
