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

Weekly Gig Guide - Week Commencing Thursday the 13th February 2014

It’s been a while since the Leng Pleng Gig Guide has been so loaded with gigs. Some returning heroes and some new faces combine this week to ensure a very busy weekend for music-lovers in Phnom Penh.

The party starts early on Saturday afternoon at Showbox, where Sliten6ix will celebrate the launch of their debut EP Nevermore. The band’s record label Yab Moung Records will be distributing the EP for free to promote ‘the first ever Hard-Core EP recorded, pressed and released in Cambodia’. Look out for a download link soon. Sliten6ix and other guest bands will be playing a ‘hardcore matinée show’ from 3pm and you will be able to grab your own copy of what could become an historic recording release.

Sharky Bar is back in business again on Saturday following a January gig hiatus. The Second Coming is a triple bill featuring three of Phnom Penh’s best-known bands. The Teaner Turners, Bum N Draze and Stiff Little Punks will be blowing away the cobwebs (and probably laying waste to several cases of beer) with the assistance of new band members and new set lists. Expect a loud, brash and celebratory evening.

Another triple bill can be enjoyed on Saturday at Equinox, where Michelle Flemming, Roxanne Dumont, and Robin Narciso perform individual acoustic sets. Each of these talented singer-songwriters has something unique and interesting to offer in very contrasting styles. Michelle is a powerful singer from Holland with a great stage presence. Roxanne is from Belgium but sings a very groovy Latin style. Robin is from Italy and is the lead singer of hardcore band Sangvar Day.

The Cambodian Space Project offer a welcome alternative to all those romantically-themed Valentine’s Day gigs with a return to Equinox this Friday. The psychedelic spaceship is expected to be rocking hard following a recent tour of Europe. Check out the excellent video below to see how the band performed at La Grange à Musique (GAM) in Creil, France.


Taking Cambodian rock’n’roll to a very different place, Sliten6ix put together this black-and-white promo for their new EP Nevermore :


International drumming virtuoso Lewis Pragasam has been busy at Oscar 51 recently, collaborating with a succession of excellent musicians for various special performances. This weekend’s huge schedule of gigs really goes off with bang on Thursday night with Misspent Youth, a blues-rock super-group featuring four outstanding players - Chris Kebeck (guitar/vocals), ‘Smokin’ Kenny Smith (guitar/vocals), Dave Zdriluk (bass/vocals) and Lewis himself. Jack sincerely hopes this will be the first of many Misspent Youth gigs as I am currently ‘on assignment’ in Siem Reap.

Until next time, watch out for those wrong-way drivers,

JACK DIAMOND.
