There’s some tasty-looking events on that beautiful, warm horizon that we call the weekend, but that’s like, FIVE WHOLE DAYS AWAY. Sigh. Fear not, though, fellow nostophobiacs; in the meantime, Cairo’s bars and clubs have churned out some solid events to keep you busy until Thursday – check it out.
URBAN SUNDAY @ THE TAP
Maadi bar, the Tap, kicks off its week on a distinctly urban note, as DJ Miesh takes his place at the decks for this week’s edition of Urban Sunday – expect hip-hop, r&b and a little of Miesh’s own inclination to house.
AMRO & THE BIG BANG BOOGIE @ RIVERSIDE
One of the hottest music acts in Cairo right now is set to perform at one of the hottest venues in Cairo right now; Amro & the Big Bang Boogie have made their presence felt over the last month or so and continue their good form with some upbeat jazz at Zamalek’s quickly reemerging Riverside.
HEIGHTENED TEMPO/THIS IS A TRANCE EVENT @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
It’s not often one gets to indulge in trance music, but it’s taking centre-stage at Cairo Jazz Club this Monday, with Karim Zalat, Omar Sherif and three-man DJ tag-team, FAM, take to the decks.
1901 KARAOKE STREET @ JOHNNY’S WEST
Having relaunched just a few weekes ago, Johnny’s at Le Pacha 1901 West has been experiencing a renaissance of sorts, and following appearances from the likes Amir Sultan and Fairouz T in recent times, Michelle Rounds is set to lead a night of karaoke.
GURUMIRAN + RAMY DJUNKIE @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
In one of the highlight music events of the week, Beirut-based music-maker, Gurumiran, takes to the Cairo Jazz Club stage for the Egypt launch of his new album, Aberrance. And because it wouldn’t be Wednesday at CJC without a little boogie, Ramy DJunkie is on closing duties.
B-SIDE BY NACELLE @ CAFE D’NILE
This week’s edition of B-Side is set to see Nacelle call on the talents of young DJ duo, Disco Masr, on a night that will see one of Nacelle’s backstage brains, Tito, also flex his DJing muscle.
There are more gigs and parties to get stuck into across Egypt’s capital this weekend – check out the Cairo Gossip events calendar for more. See you on Wednesday for a rundown on the biggest and best events of the weekend.
