Cairo Weekend Guide: NeoByrd, Massar Egbari, Dokkan & More..
It’s not that we are running out of intros to write about how indescribably delightful it is to see a glorious weekend looming on the horizon; it’s just that we know you feel the same way. Let’s get down to business, and see what Cairo has to offer this weekend.
Thursday opens with legendary drummer, Yehia Khalil, taking to the stage of Cairo Opera House’s Small Hall for a round of Oriental jazz tunes as another Jazz band, The Jazz Trio, hit 3elbt Alwan’s stage, all while local alternative rock band, Malaaz, head to the stage at El Sawy Culturewheel’s River Hall .
For some, Valentine’s Day isn’t over yet; while ROOM Art Space nurses the broken hearts of all the single Cairenes out there with a batch of contemporary Arabic songs by Dalia Younis, Magnolia celebrates love with the screening of You’ve Got Mail and a performance by Sara Alaa, who takes to the stage to sing a variety of love songs on her guitar.
Love aside, it’s all about dancing at Nineteen Twenty-five, where DJ Lyon Avakian is taking to the decks, as well as at Cairo Jazz club, where Ritza takes to the decks to serve some electro/surfpop, before Neobyrd take over for a round of funkadelic electro tunes.
Looking for some rock music? Local band, Massar Egbari, take to the stage of 24K, on a night that also sees DJ Carlos taking to the decks, while local cover band, Glass Onion, take to The Tap East’s stage, to cover various classics by The Beatles.
