While many are just about putting the last touches on their Halloween costumes for the messy weekend ahead of us, there’s still plenty to see and do in Egypt’s capital this week, with gigs and parties galore across Cairo – from the return of Cairo Jazz Club’s House Obsession, to Burn the Ballroom’s string of Cairo concerts, it’s a busy week for all.
DARBAKA: SHADY AHMED BAND + BURN THE BALLROOM @ TEATRO EL MAADI
American alt-rock band, Burn the Ballroom, set sail on a mini Cairo tour with a gig at Teatro El Maadi, with Shady Ahmed also set to perform. Teatro El Maadi might not be the most frequented venues for live music in Cairo, but then entry is free – so, you know.
HOUSE OBSESSION @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
Cairo Jazz Club‘s House Obsession is back this week, with Fairouz T., Nader Tahawy and Shady Ezz, set to drop some proverbial bombs – and yes, that is that doctor guy, House, from the show about doctors, House. See what they did there?
PARTY BY THE RIVER FT. DJ OUZO @ RIVERSIDE
Quickly becoming a hot-spot for the city’s bands, musicians and DJs, Riverside‘s weekly Party by the River will this week be lead by Pacha Sharm resident and top-notch beard-grower, DJ Ouzo.
ROCK BEL 3ARABI @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
Another of the week’s highlights to come at CJC, the Shady Ahmed Band continue a busy week for them, with Egyptian rock band, Code Masr - no relation to the hair gel – making a rare appearance for a gnarly night of music.
B-SIDE BY NACELLE @ CAFE D’NILE
Like some beautiful, swift breeze sent from some kind of black hole abyss we will never truly understand, Nacelle swept in with its new season this month with new locations, new concepts and new acts. This week’s B-Side will see one of the brains behind it all, Tito, headline with Mohamed Sadek on opening duties.
