Finders, keepers

In the grand scheme of things, objects are never lost they are merely unexpectedly located. This means nothing, of course, when your mobile phone is still travelling on that tram you just got off. But now, VBZ are trying to balance the karma by holding a Lost Property Auction. Whether it’s a phone, iPod, video camera, clothes, jewellery or even shoes you’re bound to find something to bid and buy in this Aladdin’s cave of unexpectedly located goodies.
Thursday 2 pm, Fundbüro

Future folk

Throughout space and time the Zurich duo Zigitros gather their inspiration. Musically this band combines the ancient folk stylings of instruments like the ukulele and balalaika with the modern electronica of the 21st century, and recording their music across the world in Berlin and New York. Finally, Zigitros have settled into the here and now and will play La Catrina this Friday.
Friday 9.30 pm, La Catrina

Raining in my art

Following several solo exhibitions in his native Basel, the artist The Umbrella Kid shows for the first time in Zurich with his exhibition Pan’s Demonium. Using the shadowy interplay of black and white photography with the geometric lines of concrete and urban landscapes, his art has a familiar yet surreal sense to it. The exhibition is at Galerie ARTseefeld until the 19th March but begins on Friday with an opening party.
Friday 6 pm, Galerie ARTseefeld

Animal magic

Cosmic Animals are a group of djs who have been summoned from their galactic travels to play the mothership of Provitreff. Led by Acid Pauli, known for his sets at Berlin’s Bar 25, he is backed up by dj Loopus, Matilda, Renoiser, Botico and Rosp, all fine electro djs in their own right.  Zurich band The Free Hats will be playing a live concert later in the evening and the whole thing is open ended. Not even the sight of sunshine will scare these animals away.
Saturday 10 pm, Provitreff

Brooklyn beat

Certain cities seem to spawn certain types of bands. Brooklyn, for the last couple of years or so, has specialised in boy/girl groups playing electronic dance-pop and, next to be fired from that creative cannon is The Hundred in the Hands. Like Sleigh Bells and Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs before them, this duo have an odd name and know how to mix the sharp and spiky with the deep and dancy. If you want to see this ‘next big thing’ at Mascotte I have 3 x 2 tickets to give away.
E-mail me.
Monday 9 pm, Mascotte

Good to know

I want to find the best bloggers in town. If you have any recommendations you can add them under the category city bloggers on my website. The blog should be in English and about Zurich. Here are my favourites: Art - ElH-Reports presents a personal view on Zurich’s art scene. Fashion - Playlust catches what’s now, wow and next. Travel - Spotted by locals unveils favourite places of locals. Expat - From A to Z, Kristi tells how Zurich feels if you moved here from Atlanta. Food - My Kugelhopf hast the nicest share of food pics. MusicLandlocked Blues focused on high-lighting good new music coming through Zurich. If you know other bloggers in town, let me know!

Eating: Grüntal

It’s time for a low key restaurant tip which serves traditional Swiss dishes with a twist. In summer restaurant Grüntal in Wipkingen is mostly fully booked as it has a pretty terrace with Limmat view. But the food is great at any time of the year. The served meat is mostly organic and the menus seasonal. You can go there for an intimate dinner but you also don’t feel out of place after a run along the river (maybe a walk if you tend to sweat a lot).
Restaurant Grüntal, Breitensteinstrasse 21

Info graphics en masse

I found a wonderful graphic tool. With Gapminder you can transfer a huge amount of data into informative graphics. The service is for free and if you take a few minutes to grasp the concept, it’s easy to handle. Did you know for example that in 1990 268 million Chinese lived in cities and their life expectancy was 69 years? Ten years later there are 452 million people in the city and the life expectancy increased by 4 years. You find that boring? Then create your own graph.

Gonna party like it’s your birthday
 

It’s Gonzo Club’s 1st birthday this weekend but it didn’t want to celebrate alone, so instead it’s decided to have a freaky 3-way with a couple of other birthday celebrants.  Tonight, piratenradio.ch, Zurich’s internet radio station, is two years old and has invited The Shit, Urban Junior and Jack Stoiker along for the ride.  On Friday, Halbstark also hits the terrible twos. Mr Gold, Hang the DJ and friends will be there to entertain you. 
Thursday 8 pm & Friday 10.30 pm, Gonzo Club

Flogging a dad horse
 

Part of the reason I’ve always liked Tom Waits has been his unique sound and vision of what music can be, but I think I’ve discovered his long lost German cousin in The Dad Horse Experience. Dad Horse Ottn, who essentially is The Experience, comes on like a preacher from the dark side of heaven, converting you with his banjo, kazoo and songs of weirdness and redemption. Kafi für Dich may not seem the place for your musical salvation but, then again, where does? Free entry.
Friday 8:30 pm, Kafi für dich

Cycle city
 

Strange as it may sound, not everything great happening in Switzerland happens in Zurich. Occasionally, there is an event outside of our city walls that make a small journey worthwhile, and Bike Days is one such event. Whether you’re into rattling old bikes as a cool way to get around town or as a high specification machine to glide along the roads of Switzerland, you’ll find something here for you. BMC/MTB/BMX contests, bike market, 120 exhibitors/350 brands with djs and night bike displays.  It takes place in Solothurn over the whole weekend and I have 2 x 2 tickets to give away. Email me.
Friday to Sunday 10 am to 2 am, Rythalle/Baseltor, Baselstrasse, 4500, Solothurn

Culture clash
 

At Pfingstweide this Saturday is a dj tag-team extravaganza. In the red corner we have djs Tube & Berger, German producers of the finest electronica.  Starting out as a charity enterprise to help children in Africa, they’ve since produced some outstanding tracks and even broken through into mainstream circles. In the blue corner stands djs Kruse & Nürnberg, kings of the deep house scene and go-to names for any remix action. This is a clash of the titans and may the dance floor win.
Saturday 11 pm, Pfingstweide

Creative flea markets
 
The Langstrasse area, in Kreis 4 and 5, is known for both its multicultural scene and its design community. As such, it plays host every year to Kreislauf 4 + 5, when 90 or so stores and studios open their doors to show their works and give the public an opportunity to speak with the designers. This weekend,   you can also visit one of several small flea markets which are located at the corner Josefstrasse/Hafnerstrasse, corner Neugasse/Ackerstrasse, corner Neugasse/Röntgenstrasse, corner Ottostrasse/Josefstrasse and at the corner Hafnerstrasse/Ausstellungsstrasse.
Saturday & Sunday, 11 am to 6 pm, Kreis 4 & 5

Sir Mixalot
 

Like a magpie snatching up the shiny objects that catch its eye, Sir Richard Bishop doesn’t fit into any musical genre but rather takes the best bits of every thing he hears and absorbs them into his own sound.  Whether it’s rock, jazz, gypsy-folk, flamenco, Middle Eastern, or North African you get the idea this guy is a musician in the purest sense of the word. Music, not a type of genre, is his sound and to define it one way would be to lose something another way. He plays at El Lokal this Monday.

As Mexican as it gets
 
Location Langstrasse: Two masked men approach me, actually they are Luchadores (which are Mexican wrestlers) but instead of fighting me, they press a flyer into my hand. Behind one mask hides Patrick, the driving force behind La Catrina, who grew up in Mexico and misses REAL Mexican food. As no one else fills that gap, he decided to open the first original Mexican Cantina in Zurich: El Luchador.

Whenever spring arrives I wish I had a garden so I could grow my own fresh vegetables. My perfect solution: Dunkelhölzli. There I order a seasonal vegetable subscription, tell them how much I need per week and where I would like to pick up my order. This way, I get my seasonal food every week from May until December – and discover plants I never ate before. And I also get a chance to get my fingers dirty, as every subscriber helps out on the field for about 2 days per season. For 1-2 person, 2 kg vegetables per week, 630 francs per season.

Ghost soul
 
One would think that the creative community in New York would provide the perfect ground to produce a record. This doesn’t seem to be the case for Doe Paoro. She turned her back on the city and adjourned to a meditation trip.  During her travel she found the needed inspiration for her debut album Slow to Love. The recorded tracks she describes as ‘Ghost Soul‘, which ranges somewhere between post-dub step, pop and soul. A bit like a mixture between Lykke Li and James Blake. Listen

Green art
 
Authorities are not fond of graffiti. Artist Strook doesn’t have this problem. His images consist of lines and spaces which he draws with a high-pressure cleaner on existing moss. So he actually cleans the walls, but leaves something for the eye. Surprising, what a little water can do. More
