Does anyone else see the irony in the fact that the busiest times of the year for bars and clubs in Cairo happen to be tied up with the most religious holidays? No? Ok, let’s move on then.
As I write this, I’m also frantically packing for my own beach getaway, wondering if I wouldn’t have been better off just staying in Cairo – there’s plenty to keep me busy…
MICHELLE ROUNDS @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
(Sunday 13th, 8PM-11.30PM)
Neil Young once said “Live music is better”, and he was right. Michelle Rounds agrees.
DJ FABRIC @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
(Tuesday 15th, 7PM-11.30PM)
It’s always nice to see a DJ who isn’t afraid to harness the awesome power of vocals in a house mix. Chapeau, DJ Fabric.
EID PARTY @ CAVALLINI
(Tuesday 15th, 10PM-3AM)
This rather peculiar collage is definitive proof that people actually have fun at Cavallini. No Seriously, I didn’t believe it either but there it is. DJ AR is on the decks and ‘girl-group’, El Hawsageya are performing. I’m going to need more proof.
LIVE IT UP EID PARTY @ BAMBOO
(Tuesday 15th, 10PM-5AM)
Bob, Kiko, Zizo and 3abkarino are not Egypt’s version of the Teletubbies; they’re DJs – adult, human DJs that will be living it up this Eid.
DJ KZ @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
(Wednesday 16th, 7PM-11.30PM)
Think of Karim Zalat, aka DJ KZ, not as disc-jockey, but as a director, weaving movies for the ears. Or something like that.
HED KANDI: NEVER STOP DANCING @ YASSO
(Wednesday 16th, 1PM-6AM)
(Wednesday 16th, 10PM-3AM)
(Thursday 17th, 8PM-11.30PM)
