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

Weekly Wrap - Commencing Thursday the 28th May 2015


Coming Soon...

A couple of pieces of good news arrived at Leng Pleng Towers this week regarding the Phnom Penh music scene. Firstly, Slur Bar has a new owner and will be re-opening as a live music venue in the very near future. Secondly, Bona Thiem and his partner Mel, the team behind the legendary Memphis Pub, are working hard on a new live music venture in the city. As always, watch this space for news of further developments.

This week's gig guide is a little lighter than usual, but there are still a few choice shows to check out over the weekend.

Cool Events in Phnom Penh

Alley Bar will be breaking out the awnings, dusting off the barbecue and untangling the fairy lights today in preparation for a weekend-long festival of music, street art, photography and clothing. Live music will be provided by two of the local scene's best and most unique bands: Hot Club de Phnom Penh (Thursday) and Papa Dub (Friday). DJs Alan Ritchie, Bree, Forty Thieves Soundsystem and Drop Dead Disco will be manning the decks over the three days. The Alley Bar management let us know that the festival events will be taking place in the afternoon and early-to-mid evening, so get there early to catch all the good stuff.

Sharky Bar will pull off another live music coup this weekend with Bloodstock II, creating a great opportunity for Phnom Penh gig-goers to hear three bands on the same night. None of these bands have been heard around the traps for a little while. Psychotic Reactions, Nightmare AD and Knell (formerly Splitter) will take to the stage on Saturday night in what has been billed as the 'punk vs metal, Mayweather vs. Pacquiao musical fight of the year'. Emotions and energy levels will be running high - Knell will be performing their first gig with a new line-up, new name and new songs, Psychotic Reactions will be performing with guitarist Robin Narciso (Sangvar Day) for the first time and Nightmare A.D. will be performing for the last time with their current line-up. Hopefully things will not boil over into actual violence, though...


Golden Era Voices

Meanwhile, at Meta House on Saturday night, queen-of-cute Miss Sarawan will be serving up an acoustic take on the classic 'Golden Era' Khmer rock'n'roll songs made famous by icons Ros Sereysothea and Pan Ron. Miss Sarawan now also has a few of her own compositions to throw into the mix. As a bonus, she will be joined by her twin sister Mealai for a number of songs. Spot the difference!









Whatever you're up to over the next few days, stay safe out there and... see you around the traps!
