A big and busy week awaits for Cairenes, with a couple of musical imports, the reopening of a Downtown staple and a man named Shawerma standing out across Cairo’s bars, clubs and venues – proving once more that Cairo is so where it’s at. What that ‘it’ is exactly, is open to interpretations; but it’s better to be any ‘it’ than without any ‘it’ at all. Yeah?
SOUAD MASSI CONCERT @ THE CLUBHOUSE – UPTOWN CAIRO
Few artists have stirred up as much excitement as Souad Massi has in the last few weeks – and with good reason. The French-Algerian songstress makes a huge return to Cairo with one of the biggest events of the week at Uptown Cairo.
VENT REOPENING PARTY @ VENT
After been postponed – then postponed again – VENT will finally re-open its doors after its brief hiatus, with a rather phat line-up of music including Student DJ contestant, kidmims, VENT resident and mastermind, $$$TAG$$$, and more.
BEATS LANDING FT. TEENAGE MUTANTS @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
Another edition of Cairo Jazz Club’s Beats Landing yields another huge booking. This time, one of Cairo’s marquee nightlife events welcomes German house and techno connoisseur, Teenage Mutants.
AHMED HARFOUSH @ SAIGON
Maybe it’s his silky-smooth voice. Or maybe it’s the way he wears hats like a total boss. Whatever it is, we can’t get enough of seductive crooner, Ahmed Harfoush, and there are few places as befitting as Fairmont Nile City’s Saigon.
DJ SHAWERMA @ VENT
VENT is a hub of all things weird and wonderful at the best of times, but DJ Shawerma? We’re so down. Nothing bad has ever came of shawerma.
B-SIDE BY NACELLE FT. TITO + S. NAKHLA @ CAIRO CAPITAL CLUB
Nacelle’s B-Side has been enjoying a fruitful stretch at Cairo Capital Club and its rich vein of form continues this week with Mr Nacelle himself, Tito, and a returning Sherif Nakhla.
