Two Egyptian musicians, who protested in Tahrir Square during their country's 2011 revolution, traveled to the city's North Side to play at the Edgewater Uncommon Ground location in a show called "The Arab Spring Concert."

Ahmed Derbala and Nour Ashour will play alongside American musicians on Friday, March 22. Each will perform their own songs.

They've played for Americans before, but never in front of an entire audience of them.

"We don't know how the Americans will react," Derbala said. "I hope they like it."


The concert begins at 9:30 p.m. Friday at the Uncommon Ground, at 1401 W. Devon Ave. Admission is $10. Call Uncommon Ground at 773-465-9801 to reserve tickets.
