Izzy Abidi and Physical Graffiti at Roseleaf Cafe Acoustic Saturdays

My late discovery of the week: there seems to be a weekly acoustic evening going on every Saturday at 4pm in Dubai Garden Centre. The one I attended was a double feature, with solo singer-songwriter and guitarist "Izzy" Abidi alternating short sets with folk acoustic band Physical Graffiti, whom I also heard recently at an open mic. It's not a long event, running a little over an hour, and thus fitting nicely between Saturday's afternoon and evening plans. And it was a rather enjoyable hour, including restyled covers of pop hits like "Royals" and "Poker Face" (by Abidi) and "Somebody That I Used To Know" (by Physical Graffiti), some originals, and a valiant improvisation attempt by Physical Graffiti. The Roseleaf Cafe, at which the event takes place, is also good for coffee and light edibles.
