This Weekend in Lahore: The Walled City Anthology
This weekend in Lahore we’ve got two major festivals happening. One of which is the Coke Festival, back for round two, and the other is a multi-media installation in the Walled City, titled Sheherezade. There’s a Jazz Night, a workshop on minimalism and a panel discussion of feminism in Pakistan. Need details? Read ahead.
Olomopolo Media is hosting BlueSex for a night of musical revelry. For those unfamiliar with the musical stylings of the BlueSax collective, it’s a band that was formed in early 2011. They follow a blues structure with a desi twist, playing songs with social and spiritual themes. Nothing to make your weekend like a Live Jazz Night, is there?
P.S. Tickets are available at the venue

It’s that time of the year again when Asad Sheikh becomes as ubiquitous on social media as Santa Claus during Christmas time. Coke Festival was a big hit last November, with many food giants bringing their A-Game. We’re hoping for the same spark this time around, if not better.
