Your Guide to the Weekend Ahead

Everything you should be doing between now and Sunday evening.


What’s On Screen?

At META House, catch cult classic The Room (7pm) – variously adored and reviled as the worst film of all time – followed by James Franco’s The Disaster Artist (8.30pm), telling the story behind the film’s creation.

Or there’s a showing of Armando Iannucci’s dark comedy Death of Stalin at Flicks 1 at 6.30pm.

What’s On Stage?

The big one tonight is Pharcyde at Hard Rock Cafe. One of the most influential hip hop groups of all time, the band are playing in Phnom Penh as part of their 25th Anniversary album tour. We believe it’s sold out, but you might be able to snag returns if you get there early.

Elsewhere, there’s gorgeous Friday night jazz from Aymen Ghali and Mett Legita at Farm to Table, as well as from Upside at Alchemy. For steamy Latin rhythms, check out El Gato at the Bassac Lane street party, or for upbeat pop, head to the Boxchords’ gig at Duplex.

What’s On Late?

There’s an all-night DJ set from French-Khmer DJ An Thakaa at MadHouse

… Or hit up Top Banana on St 278 for this week’s installment of their Friday sessions.


What’s On the Menu?

Calling carnivores: there’s all-you-can-eat ribs at Miam for $15pp today – and you can add a glass of wine for $3.50.

What’s On the Agenda?

Tackle Phnom Penh’s burgeoning housing crisis in a unique way by learning how to make teeny tiny miniature furniture at this niche class run by architecture students (and hosted at the much larger-scale architectural feat, Olympic Stadium).

What’s On Screen?

META House screens innovative feature film Girl Rising (7pm), following nine girls in different countries – including Cambodia – as they fight to overcome the obstacles holding them back.

What’s On Stage?

For funk and soul, the lovely Mirasol plays Alchemy tonight – or dust off your instrument of choice and get on stage yourself at Cloud’s musical Open Mic Night jamming session.

Or, for something completely different, check out Madagascan drumming troupe The Bloco Malagasy, complete with capoeira dancers

What’s On Late?

In honour of DJ Suzuki’s birthday, META House goes all out with a night of techno, house electronica.

What Else?

Cheer on Cambodia’s first Gaelic Football team at this international tournament featuring teams from Vietnam, Thailand and Singapore, held at ISPP.

Or pick up something you’ll treasure forever from SPACE FOUR ZERO’s newly opened Wang Dang Doodle – more details about their grand opening sale here!


What’s On the Menu?

Nom, nom, nom… delicious seafood at Chinese House, that’s what. Details here. Alternatively, tuck into a traditional English roast dinner with all the trimmings at Box Office.

What’s On Screen?

Before he turned his attention to bullying the rest of the world, Trump tried – and failed – to bully a group of Scottish homeowners who were trying to stop him destroying a stretch of beautiful coastline. To see how that panned out, check out You’ve Been Trumped (4pm) at META House.

Following that, there’s another top documentary, the Tenth Dancer, which follows efforts to rebuild Cambodia’s artistic traditions following the Pol Pot regime.

And, at Flicks 1, you can catch acclaimed feature film Please Stand By (8pm), about a young autistic woman’s quest to deliver her Star Trek script to Hollywood.

What’s On Stage?

If classical music’s your thing, pianist Peter Seivewright plays classic fugues from Reger and Bach against the elegant backdrop of the National Museum.

Squeeze in one last gig over cheap beer, shots and Tex-Mex at Tacos Kokopelli.

What Else?
