Cairo Weekend Guide: Free Mashrou’ Leila Gig, Sharmoofers’ Debut & Lots of New Art
Revel in the glory of the three-day weekend, fellow Cairenes! While many have taken the chance to escape the city for a few days of sun, sea and sand, there’s plenty to do right here.
Elsewhere on the nightlife scene, Alexandrian DJ, MadLou, debuts at Tipsy Bar & Lounge in Maadi, Tamer Auf takes to the stage at Downtow bar/art-space, VENT, and increasingly popular sibling duo, Gawdat, play at Cavallini in Heliopolis, while Buddha Bar hosts another festive Ladies’ Night.
There’s lots of live music, too, with silky-voiced crooner, Ahmed Harfoush, performing at Fairmont Nile City’s Saigon Restaurant & Lounge and Shady Ahmed and Glass Onion performing at Cairo Jazz Club. Meanwhile, Townhouse Gallery hosts an exciting line-up of live acts as part of the ADAD initiative.
If the only sounds you want to hear tonight is the flow of whiskey into a glass, Alchemy has your back with another edition of Molten Amber.
There’s more fun at Tipsy Bar & Lounge on Saturday, with satirical band, Like Jelly, performing, while singer-songwriter, Malak, celebrates the release of EP, Alters, with a live performance and signing session at Virgin Megastore in Citystars.
Elsewhere, Basheer brings his Nubian-inspired music to Cairo Jazz Club, Ashara Gharby perform at El Sawy Culturewheel with a host of special guests and after-hours Giza club, Bamboo, is sharing the Lebanese Love.
There’s plenty more where all that came from – check out the Cairo 360 events calendar for more gigs, parties, exhibitions and more!
