    Huh, what’s that? You don’t want to go out this weekend? Because you already went out twice this week? Because you ‘need’ to sleep? Sleep is for the weak, Cairo, and there’s too much happening this weekend to seclude yourself in a cocoon of your own indecisiveness – here’s the who, what, where and why of the best of this weekend’s events across Cairo’s bars and clubs.

    DJ FUZZY & AYMAN NAGEEB @ O BAR
    (Thursday)

    DJ Fuzzy – who, disappointingly, is not as fuzzy as his name suggests – and partner, Ayman Nageeb - who’s clearly letting down the team with his sensible name – have appeared on CG Tunes on more than one occasion and each time we lament their lack of public appearances. But the duo oblige this weekend with a big gig at Fairmont Nile City‘s O Bar.

    SCREWDRIVER – THE REUNION @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
    (Thursday)

    Cairo Jazz Club‘s live music nights are generally laidback affairs – except for when Screwdriver are playing. The ever-so-slightly insane band return to their home away from home after a hiatus of sorts and will be looking to make up for lost time with their first gig in quite some time. Attendees are encouraged to arrive with bagfuls of energy.

    THE ILOUNGE @ RIVERSIDE
    (Thursday & Friday)

    Ever since Riverside opened in Zamalek earlier this year, we’ve been told that it’s the new hotbed of high-end nightlife. This weekend, the bar-come-restaurant-come-hotel lives up to the lofty claims to an extent, with a two-day fashion-themed extravaganza with the iLounge, featuring a line-up of lovely ladies that we’ve been told are as talented as they are picturesque…

    DJ FEEDO @ VENUE LOUNGE & BAR
    (Friday)

    DJ Feedo – possibly the most under-appreciated disc jockey in Cairo, as well as the only person I know who can wear that outfit without looking ridiculous – has bagged himself a new gig at Zamalek’s conspicuous  Venue Bar & Lounge, where he’ll be ‘dropping bombs’ – of the musical variety – every Friday.

    THE INNER CIRCLE @ ???? ???????
    (Friday)

    Ismail Kassem – of Back 2 Basics fame – debuts new and completely unpretentious nightlife concept, the Inner Circle, this weekend with Greek duo, Tosel & Hale, as well as local up-and-comer, M. Fayek. The uber exclusive party – whose venue is to be kept a secret up until the event itself – is set to be the first in a series of parties across Egypt. Cool.

    AHMED SAMY @ VENT
    (Friday)

    As impressive as VENT‘s commitment to showcasing Cairo’s musically disenfranchised is, Ahmed Samy rules all. As one of the Downtown bar’s more active residents, this guy has the most beautiful musical imbalance in his brain that translates into the most unique sets you’ll here in the city. Nice cheekbones, too.
