Cairo Weekend Guide: D-CAF2015, Sound Chemistry & Stand-Up Comedy
What a beautiful weekend this is looking! The sun is shining, the birds are singing – no, wait. That's the sound of unnecessary car horns. Whatever the case, there's plenty to see and do across the capital this weekend.
On Thursday, the Downtown Contemporary Arts Festival, D-CAF2015, hosts its latest live music event with Denmark Based DJ, Why Be, and local rapper, Abyusif, performing at Sherazade. Meanwhile, DJ Hady Tarek's Sound Chemistry welcomes Gaser and Mohey from the Besworx Record Label at Venue Lounge & Bar.
Elsewhere, live music at Cairo Jazz Club comes courtesy of award-winning musician Fathy Salama & Sharkiat, while Maadi bar, the Tap, features a night with the Mowafi brothers, Timmy & Wally, titled Horrible DJs.
On Friday, Back 2 Basics celebrates its second anniversary with a huge day party at Fairmont Nile City and CJC welcomes Kidmims; and Shenzo for a night of deep house tunes, while Riverside hosts this week’s edition of Riverdeep with Tahawy and Shaggy.
Two film screening are happening at Zawya—a Chilean/French documentary drama titled Nostalgia for the Light, and a Chinese drama titled Still Life— as part of D-CAF2015, as well as a unique group art exhibition titled Great Ticks From Your Future at the French Consulate.
‘This is an Exhibition about Shoes’ sees a cobbler explore the fine line between art and design through the medium of a shoe at the Townhouse Gallery.
