The weekend and all the usual shenanigans that come with it is nigh and, as always, Cairo hasn’t disappointed with some very tasty parties awaiting, including more of LaidDaze, Back 2 Basics, a Nacelle resident at CJC and more.
BACK IN THE DAZE VOL. 3 @ DAHABIYA BOAT
If you can’t take the party to the beach, take it to the Maadi Corniche. Summer season is taking its sweet time to get here, so sailing on the Dahabiya Boat in the Nile is the best we can hope for. This week, LaidDaze‘s young but already popular Back in the Daze welcomes Student DJ 2014 winner, Gaser, and up-and-coming local DJ, Ash.
BACK2GOLD @ UPTOWN CAIRO
‘Back’ seems to be the word of the week as Back 2 Basics welcomes legendary British DJ, Back Warren, who headlines Back2Gold. Taking place at B2B’s new adopted home, the Backhouse at Backtown Cairo, the night will also see local favourite, Backher, on opening and closing duties. #Back.
DJ ALY GOEDE @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
This Friday, Cairo Jazz Club is set to get very down and very dirty with diabolical tech-house genius and Nacelle stalwart, DJ Aly Goede – the man who has the daunting and unenviable task of being the last DJ on the line-up at this year’s Sandbox in Gouna . He’ll be fine, though – he always is.
RAINDOGS @ THE TAP
Maadi bar, the Tap, welcomes back local four-man Tom-Waits-tribute-group-come-experimental-rockers, Raindogs; a band who’s interests apparently include grenadine, megaphones, losing guitar picks and keybaordists, chicken minks and playing barefoot. True story.
RASHRADIO @ BALCON LOUNGE
Quickly becoming a hub for alternative music in Heliopolis, Balcon Lounge ends the weekend with singer-songwriter and new BFF of Mya, RaShRadio, who takes to the stage with his trusted guitar and a mental catalog of genres – expect everything from pop and acoustic numbers, to reggae and rock.
For more parties, gigs and other events, keep the Cairo Gossip events calendar close, and your enemies even closer. Or whatever.
