Ambitious Dubai-based band Dahab blend exotic Arabic elements into their percussive, inventive rock style. Despite playing covers-led sets in the city every week, this relaxed rooftop show will take the audience on a journey through the band’s decade-long career, working their way through material from debut LP Spirit of Sinai and key tracks from second album Qabeela’h, before debuting new material from their forthcoming third, Ray’ah. Support on the night comes from acoustic blues and folk duo Charlie Everett and Mark Atkinson. There’ll only be a handful more of these twilight Live Local Loud showcases of local talent before summer sets in, so soak up the ambiance while you can.
Free. 8pm, Friday April 13. Pyramid Rooftop Gardens, Wafi, Oud Metha (04 324 4100).
