So you went to Sandbox, huh? You need a few days to recover? You spent a whole load of money on god knows what, yeah? Snap out of it. Like, seriously, snap out of it. There’s too much to be seen and to be done across Cairo’s bars and clubs this week, including the launch of a new live music event series, Greek night at a Chinese restaurant and bar, more from Red.Move.Now and the long-awaited release of Soopar Lox’s new album.
UNPLUGGED VOL. 1 @ RIVERSIDE
No, this is not a poster for a gritty drama about a power struggle between two Arab Mafia clans in New York; it’s a poster for Riverside’s new Unplugged. Breaking in the live music series is none other than Massar Egbari and Wust El Balad.
GREEK NIGHT @ PEKING LODGE
If you can wrap your head around the fact that one of Cairo’s most enduring Chinese restaurants is hosting a Greek-themed night, then pop over to Peking Lodge for live live bouzouki music, Greek food and more. Mental.
ART JAM WITH ASHRAF HAMDI @ THE LEMON TREE & CO.
Actor, filmmaker, photographer and tight-butt hottie, Ashraf Hamdi, is the latest to be in the Red.Move.Now. spotlight and will guide attendees in the Lemon Tree & Co. through a night of art, film and more.
GAMES NIGHT @ THE TAP
Giving Cairenes an escape from the burdens of being a responsible adult, Maadi bar, the Tap, is dusting off it’s chest of toys for its weekly Games Night.
SOOPAR LOX ALBUM LAUNCH @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
We have a bone to pick with Soopar Lox; as one of Cairo’s must unique music acts, the live Oriental house band have been conspicuous in their absence in recent months. But it turns out that they’ve been locked up in a studio putting together new album, Semsisizer. This week, they launch it with a special gig at Cairo Jazz Club. Don’t stay away for so long next time, yo.
