With Halloween just a few days away, one might be forgiven for taking it easy this week – if you’re a wuss, that is. Maybe it’s a coincidence or a cruel twist of fate, but there’s some pretty big parties across Cairo’s bars and clubs this week vying for your time, money and liver.
1127 VS MONEIM @ VENT
Downtown bar/art-space, VENT, is holding it’s first hip-hop battle this week, pitting its newest resident, 1127, against DJ Moneim in a brutal battle of beats that will leave one man’s DJing career in tatters. That’s a bit extreme, yes, but those hip-hop guys have a lot of pride.
PRIVATE SESSIONS FT. DJ OUZO @ THE GARDEN
(Monday)Pacha Sharm resident, DJ Ouzo, is the man in charge of the music this week at another edition of Korba bar the Garden‘s weekly Private Sessions. Expect progressive and electro house, as well as lots of tipsy people putting their arm around you while declaring their love.
HISHAM ZAHRAN & ALY GOEDE @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
I love me some some bar-based alliteration, and this week, it’s the turn of Hisham Zahran and Aly Goede to do what they can to make the otherwise monotonous Monday into a manic one at Cairo Jazz Club.
MOHASSEB & FRIENDS
Like some kind of modern day Egyptian version of Robin Hood and his Merry Men, Mohasseb will be stealing from the rich and giving to the poor at Cairo Jazz Club, alongside a line-up that also includes last year’s Student DJ champions, Aguizi and Fahim.
