There’s no better refuge from the harsh, cold Egyptian winter than Cairo’s bars and clubs – you know, with all that irresponsible drinking, sweaty jolt of an excuse that many pass off as dancing and, of course, that classic Casanova move of brushing your chest up against a good-looking stranger as you usher past him or her to get to the bathroom. It already feels warmer, right?
TOYBOYS @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
ToyBoys are back at CJC, bringing the smell of summer and preteen fluids wherever they go. They’re pretty handy in the DJ booth, too.
THE AXEL FOWLEY TOUR @ EVERYWHERE
Speaking of summer, Sahl Hasheesh’s resident DJ, Axel Fowley, is following up the first leg of his Cairo tour at Tamarai with gigs at Amici Heliopolis on Monday, Alchemy on Tuesday and Amici Zamalek on Wednesday.
HIGH VOLTAGE @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
PanSTARRS, NEOBYRD and Mohamed Sadek take over CJC for a face-melting back-to-back-to-back line-up; if the music doesn’t get you moving, the static will.
The final Town Heroes before the grand finale sees DJs Misty and Baher are billed for Tamarai this Thursday to siphon in some electronic mojo to the club.
DISCO CAIRO #2 @ THE TEMPLE
The French Institute and 100Copies Music have joined forces for Disco Cairo #2 with music coming via locals, DJ Figo and ISMAEL, as well as Parisian duo, Acid Arab.
If this carefully and judiciously chosen selection of events isn’t tickling your fancy, the totally awesome CG events calendar has plenty more.
