With Egypt’s latest lesser-of-two evils presidential vote dominating minds, hearts and Facebook statuses this week, there’s a nervous energy in Cairo’s off-colour air – who knows what might happen in the next few days? But what will be, will be and so there’s nothing else you can do but throw that inked-finger in the air like you just doesn’t care.
FEMME FATALE FT. DJ MAYOUNAH @ TIPSY BAR & LOUNGE
Feisty Cairo native, DJ Mayounah, is taking a break from life in the bubble that is Doha to make a rare appearance in the capital this weekend at Maadi’s Tipsy Bar & Lounge.
MAII & ZEID @ VENT
Alexandrian cutie, Maii Waleed, and mustachioed Beirut Native, Zeid Hamdan, kick off a mini Cairo tour this weekend at VENT, before going on to perform at Tipsy, CJC and Waleed’s hometown.
BACK 2 BASICS SUMMER GATE 2014 @ FAIRMONT NILE CITY
With beach season all but here, the guys and gals at Back to Basics are having one last Cairo hurrah before taking off for Egypt’s coasts with Summer Gate. Helping B2B bid adieu are Macedonian DJ, Nikola Nita, and the always excellent SHawky.
CRUSH @ EL SAWY CULTUREWHEEL
It’s dark, it’s damp, it’s under a bridge and there’s no bar. There are few, if ever any, appealing factors when it comes to El Sawy Culturewheel, but this weekend, CRUSH takes over the stage with a rather eclectic line-up of musicians.
ELLIE OF LONDON @ TIPSY BAR & LOUNGE
Ellie of London appears on CG rather often, I know, but I can’t help it. She’s in my veins. Plus, there’s not much else going on this Saturday – so why the heck not.
There’s plenty more where that came from on the CG events calendar – check it out for more parties, gigs and other equally fun things to do across Cairo.
