It’s only the second weekend of 2014 and Cairo’s bars and clubs are have kicked off the year in style, with this weekend seeing more of Egypt’s best musicians and DJs, and a few temporary imports, strut their stuff.
ALY GOEDE @ VENT
Nacelle resident, Aly Goede, takes to the stage of Downtown Cairo’s bar/art-space VENT for a night of – wait for it – all vinyl sets.
AMR HOSNY @ O BAR
The Fairmont Nile City’s O Bar welcomes the Godfather himself, Amr Hosny - shown here as the ghost of DJ past – to the DJ booth. Book a room while you’re at it – it’s going to get messy.
Although I know for a fact that I’d much rather see Omar Sherif the actor spin something sick on the decks, this Omar Sherif will have to do. There’s always Mohasseb, too.
After their end-of-season boat party, Nacelle just couldn’t wait to bring back House Sessions. And while the line-up looks like something you’d read off of a Chinese restaurant’s menu, Chopsticks and JohnJon are actually rather good.
LIKE JELLY @ VENT
Fusing music and comedy like no other band in Egypt, Like Jelly bring their dirty antics to VENT, where rumour has it that someone might actually crack a smile.
There are plenty more events around the city this weekend; check out the Cairo Gossip events calendar for more.
