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

Weekly Gig Guide - Week Commencing Thursday the 6th March 2014

Jack will be jumping on the bus to Kampot this weekend in order to check out the latest happenings on the burgeoning riverside music and arts scene. Leng Pleng asked man-about-town 'Donkey Dave' to give us the low-down on the live sounds happening in Kampot this week – see the 'Donkey Dave Diaries' below. Thanks for the information, Donkey.

As any visitor to Kampot or resident Pot-Pat knows we have a pretty vibrant music scene within our fair city. There are many live venues and open mics to be found on various nights during the week. Our very own home-grown superstars The Kampot Playboys (currently making their mark in the Penh) are a main attraction. The boys can often be found jamming at Madi's Bar or playing somewhere in the town in various guises.
This weekend has three events that stand out. First off on Friday is Joe Wrigley & The Jumping Jacks with Dj Herbaholic at the Bodhi Villa from 9pm. Joe and his Jacks are a retro 1950's-style band playing country, rockabilly and rock'n'roll.
Saturday sees a major landmark event – The Blissful Guest House 10-year Anniversary Party featuring The Kampot Playboys, Ant&Hue and DJ Kdam, with music starting at 6pm. This promises to be an amazing night and should not be missed.
Finally on Sunday we have something completely different with the 6-month anniversary of Blue Bar Red. Featuring Ant providing an acoustic set and then a special performance of the brand-new Ivor Biggun and the Red Nose Burglars Tribute Band. Described as 'folking marvellous music', this will be pure music-comedy, and the audience will be encouraged to join in during the night.
We hope some of you will take advantage of the great events this weekend and pay us a visit in Kampot... Go on, you know it makes sense!”
Back in Phnom Penh, a great punk show is promised at Slur Bar on Friday night when three hard-hitting bands will test the limits of the in-house sound system. Psychotic Reactions, Sangvar Day and Stiff Little Punks 2 will make sure that sound technician Josh Bouw has his hands full. Josh has also been doing some technical tinkering to improve the sound of the vocals at Slur
The qualified sound engineer from Canada will also be on hand at The Latin Quarter on Saturday when The Cambodian Space Project perform a live show. The colonial villa is a beautiful setting for a gig and always attracts a throng of tuk-tuk drivers and people on the street whenever a band plays. In an unusual way, the building acts as a natural amplifier and projects sound a long way down Streets 178 and 19.

One gig that would be truly worthy of International Women's Day (this Saturday the 8th March) is the forthcoming visit of BlocoMalagasy to Doors Phnom Penh. The all-female drumming group from Madagascar hit the capital on the 15th March. In the meantime, look out for their incredible drumming displays on the streets of Sihanoukville and Kampot this weekend and check out the great promotional video below:

Stay safe and see you around the traps,
