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

Gig Guide - Week Starting Thursday the 6th of June, 2013


A host of international performers playing around the traps this weekend. Pontoon will host a fourth date for Dengue Fever this Saturday night. Imojah continues to wow the local audience as the totally sultry and sexy Reggae songstress from Martinique teams up with the guys from Dub Addiction at the Show Box on Friday night. Additionally, the RiverHouse Lounge continues their special series of international DJs with DJ Fred Jungo late into Friday night on the riverside. All totally cool gigs!

Friday night sees Le Jardin hosting a very special Friday night show known as the Sunset Sandpit Sessions. The first iteration of the event features a string of performers, including Scott 'Scoddy' Bywater, Jenna Holliday and the last chance to catch Kevin ’Pinky’ Drew perform a set of his highly original and infectious songs. Cool! With the music starting around 6:00PM the event is geared to thos of you who are LOOKING FOR A FRIDAY AFTER WORK BEER WITH MUSIC! Outrageously cool! If you have not been to Le Jardin before then the place boasts a spacious beer garden and large comfy chairs together with a play area for the kids. Should be a great time - as long as the rain stays away.

Later the same day The Fumes return to Sharkys as does the smokey vocals of Sonhador returns to The Village. MetaHouse will be hosting a very cool Vintage Funk & Soul Vinyl night and The Klezobodians move to Paddy Rice for the weekend. The latter should be a totally great venue for the band - even though the acoustics can be a little tricky at times - definitely another recommended gig for this night.

Saturday night is definitely punk night this week with Sharkys hosting the third iteration of the venue's Punk & Disorderly show. This time it will be headlined by the new Psychotic Reactions as well as Sanvar Day, Jaworski 7 and a host of other great Punk and Indie rock bands. Definitely a must for aficionados of this genre. Additionally, the totally professional and totally original tunes of Splitter will be extolled through the airwaves surrounding the Show Box the same night.

If Punk is not your thing then the great Celtic roots music of Kheltica will be available at the Opera Cafe that same night. These guys are just totally great with a great mix and great atmosphere. It will be an unplugged gig and the specially formed 9-piece band for the night will be printing off lyric sheets so that everyone can sing along, stomp their feet, bang on a table and generally get involved - in true traditional Celtic fashion. Cool! Still more is available that same night as RingTail host a regular Saturday night Open Mic at the Boomerang Bar & Restaurant.

Finally, next Wednesday at the Memphis Pub, a very special day of celebration for all Filipinos as Jaworski 7, Adobo Conspiracy, Michael Coronel and the  Philippine Embassy Choral put on a great night of music. Should be a great night of toally great music.

In case you haven't heard the big news - consummate musicians Ritchy & Phil have just opened their new bar atop the Terrazza Italian Restaurant on Street 282 in Boeng Keng Kang 1 in Phnom Penh. The name of the bar is known as The Groove and you can get more information about the place HERE. There will be regular live music from there and I feel sure it will be a regular hangout for all those who missed the great vibes that used to be available at Studio 182. Cool!

The great musical support services emanating from one of the Kingdom's most forward thinking and well setup venues continues to be rolled out this week with Equinox's 24-hour a day musical stream. You can hook into all the totally classic gigs that have tramped the Equinox stage - and, believe me, there have been many. You can enjoy the sounds (all recorded live!) that stream from the service any time. Click on the image below to tune into to current tracks. Totally cool!

I will leave you this week with an absolutely great local production. This original song and video is another indefectible example of the totally vibrant, unique and creative local music scene. This is a collaboration between the fervent and dynamic musical mind of Professor Kinski and the totally beautiful, passionate and sultry vocals and keys of Amanda Bloom. Check it out!

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.
