I can’t keep doing this – well, shouldn’t more than can’t – but that doesn’t draw away from the the fact that I’m burning out. So spark a fire under me and serve me those flambe cocktails because this week is all about the fundamentals. And by fundamentals I mean dancing, music, girls, girls, boys, girls, and more music.
I make it a habit to be there whenever a band get’s their musical-cherry popped. Consider it the Japanese fetishist inside me, but there’s something I find arousing in their clumsy anxiety.
UNDERGROUND @ AMICI ZAMALEK
Arma has put together quite the underground-overground mainstream party with DJ Ahmed Kotb and a special guest that will probably be more last-minute booking than surprising unveiling.
What I would give to be the microphone in her hand. I’m really not that picky when it comes to the new queen of jazz in Cairo.
Hooray for overused themes! LOL, just kidding. I love ToyBoys, superheroes and duckies. Not so keen on Red Bull, though. I’m joking, I love it.
DANCESTOCK: RACHEL STARR @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
The final installment of Dancestock ends with an explosive set courtesy of latest American craze, Rachael Starr, and current local addiction, Aguizi & Fahim.
