I’m having such a full week organising my projects that I missed my deadline for my gig guide. However:
Thursday 1: Bywater@Baitong, a kind of an open mic. Acoustic music, special guests, fine food. Baitong, #7, St 360, btw Norodom and 51. Expect performances by John Shakespear and Ukulele James Speck.
Friday 2: A brand new outfit, The Riverside Raybans, all about acoustic grooves and groovy rhythms and keeping the vocals lush. Ukulele James Speck, Luis Arambarri, Adrien Gayraud join me in a grab bag of fun, featuring a heartfelt tribute to the late JJ Cale.
Saturday 3: Moi Tiet! returns to Equinox armed with a drummer, a sax player, and a growing following! Catch us for our only performance in August.
Sunday 4: Sunday Sundowner Sessions from 4 – 7 pm at Rubies, cnr 19 & 240 Sts. Back after a week off for elections. It should be theme weekend, but it’s been hectic. Probably a JJ Cale theme given I’ll be doing that on Friday as well. Scoddy and a cast of thousands. Well, dwindling thousands, given the time of year. But good quality thousands.
Coming soon: more and (NEW) WASH, the VIBE MUSIC FEST at Doors, rockabilly with Joe Wrigley & the Jumping Jacks, more Riverside Raybans. A big month in August, who needs a low season?
all these and much, much more around town this week can be searched through the voluminous weekly music listings at http://lengpleng.com. And then check and sign up at http://kumnooh.com for the arts scene in Cambodia.
