Just when I thought I’d seen it all across Cairo’s bars and clubs, DJ Blackberry comes out of left-field to remind me that life is worth living. Named as such because she’s the only one in her village to own a smartphone, Miss Blackberry is widely considered to be Ukraine’s best female DJ according to nothing else but these flyers.
Out of one protest-ridden country and into another, Blackberry is set to play two dates at international clubbing hotspot, Phenomena, on Tuesday 11th of February and Friday 14th of February – Valentine’s Day – where she will almost certainly not be wearing a bikini top or even making eye contact with Cairo’s esteemed and respectable clubbers. As a special treat, the hotly anticipated Valentine’s gig is set to feature local violinist, Islam – because why the heck not?
