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

Gig Guide - Week Starting Thursday the 11th of July, 2013


It's that time of the week again and the coming weekend's gig guide is full with a great spread of quality gigs.

Equinox has a great weekend of live music lined up with emerging Khmer Rock band The Underdogs playing there on Friday and a classic double bill on Saturday with The Klezbodians and Jahzad. This will be the last local performance of the Sam Day Harmett before he returns to the place of his birth, New York City, to embed himself there in the local music scene.

Sharkys presents two nights of solid rock music this weekend. The Saturday night gig is relatively special with the Las Vegas Knockouts hitting the stage. They are a rockabilly-punk band that hails from Las Vegas via Bangkok and they hit town last week. On Friday the venue hosts Holliday in Cambodia.

The Groove presents a series of polished and sophisticated performances over three nights starting tonight (Thursday), culminating in the celebration of the French national day on Saturday night. This collection of gigs will feature a number of totally exceptional local musicians including the likes of Euan Grey, Barry Spiers and Diego Dimarques. A cosy and cool venue atop the Terrazza Italian Restaurant.

The Slur Bar brings you four nights of excellent music. It starts Thursday with the wonderfully extolled saxophonic melodies of Stephane Routier and GTS Jazz followed by Friday's Latin party with the Diego Latin Trio, then the more contemporary classic rock of the Lazy Drunks and finally Sunday's full-on rock with the Khmer band Oscar.

Le Jardin will again present the Sunset Sandpit Sessions early on Friday. This week the beer garden will feature three performers - Sonny Krishnan and Pervaz Gulzar from RNA and Alex Ung. Like some kind of musical superhero, Alex appears at a venue in the middle of the night, dazzles everyone with his powers, then disappears again. The audience is left wondering, "Who is this young man with the exquisite voice and smooth John Mayer/John Legend repertoire?" Find out for yourself on Friday. Also earlier on Friday, welcome the return of the ARTillary Cafe back to the live music scene with Scott Bywater and Andre Swart.

Metahouse will also entertain you with the utmost of underground coolness in the heart of Phnom Penh's hustled back-streets. The back-beats of the international Reggae-Dub DJ Samurai will be available on Saturday. He describes himself as a new kind of artist - a DJ, rapper, poet, novelist and dramatist all in one. A unique experience guaranteed. On the south coast, the same night, the Naga House also presents an intercontinental DJ in the form of DJ Bello - deep house is what you will find spinning into the late late hours.

The Doors features one of the last performances of Lady & The Tramp on Friday night. On Saturday night the venue will have Krom perform some of the songs from their forthcoming release entitled Neon Dark. This album will feature some songs together with Master Kong Nay

The FCC Phnom Penh also chimes in this week with the totally danceable and totally great performing Latino band Luna Negra. Great night of music on the FCC rooftop for those who like to dance.

Leaving you this week with a couple of things from the sometimes local Gone Marshall - a totally talented poet and music producer. We featured his humurous take on the local scene a couple of years ago with the song Barangutang. Below is a couple more offerings from the performer. A whol list can be enjoyed here: https://soundcloud.com/gone-marshall.

From Ted, Rob 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.
