Zurich (EN):Zurich, 21.7.2011: Porn Orp Party, antipasti & dark beer lovers

Share this newsletter

Dear gentlemen, on Friday, my Porn Orp Party takes place. So you have a little bit of time left to grow a perfect porn moustache. Those who come with well groomed facial hair, get a drink for free. Ron's girlfriend: "Hey, and what about the girls?" Ron: "I never said that the moustache has to be real, and for flashy painted lips you'll get a drink anyway". Ron's girlfriend: "Ok, then I'll wear a porn moustache." Here some inspirations

Bern visiting
While many clubs are leaving us alone in the rain and take a summer break, Hive parties on. Neon, their regular Thursday night, celebrates the non existing summer with hot electro, indie dance and house beats by Radiorifle and Mickey Morris. Both are residents at the Bonsoir Club in Bern. Welcome guys, I hope you brought some sun with you.
Thursday 11 pm, Hive

Ten days left
In ten days, Seefeld-Razzia will close – to be renovated and turned into a grill restaurant. The cultural venue goes down with a bang and has a series of events over the next few days (like the Porn Orp Party on Friday). On Thursday there is an exhibition where several artists show the world their talent, amongst them Onur and Rafael. And the walls are still lined with the latest project by Kuss-Magazin
Thursday 6 pm, Seefeld-Razzia

Ron's party was the first one to be held at Seefeld-Razzia and it will be the last one. To honour the buildings history – it used to be a sex cinema at one time, hence the black painted walls – I'll call it the Porn Orp Party. Quite clever I think. The party starts at 9.30 pm. Make sure you get there in time. Entry is for free and when it's full, it's full. The concert will start at 10.30 pm. Which band? That's a surprise! And for all of you, who don't have time – or the hair – to grow a moustache, I have three lovely Nekkish moustache necklaces to give away. Just send a message. If you win, you can pick it up at the party. See you there!
Friday 9.30 pm, Seefeld-Razzia
Pop-Up galleries are a fix feature in London's art scene. Yves Slinka and Oskar Weiss want to make this happen for Zurich too. Therefore, they transformed a former print shop at Kochstrasse 1 into a temporary gallery. For one week they exhibit the works by Play Hunter – do you remember my favourite style hunter? - Rico Scagliola & Michael Meier, Valentina Vujovic and Tina Braegger. As it's still raining, I'm sure you'll find the time to stop by. 
From 23 July to 29 July, 12 pm to 6 pm, Kochstrasse 1
The future is bright...
The future is black. Zukunft spoils us with a great night in Saturday, with a guest from New York: Daniel Wang who fits into a niche between disco, Detroit and house and combines to a new sound. Three resident djs will then heat up the house properly with music for soul and body. But then, after the last beat, Zukunft closes for the summer. Is everyone leaving the sinking ship? Summer, where are you?
Saturday 11 pm, Zukunft 
Achmed and Paul
Singer-songwriter meets tango at El Lokal this Monday. Both have a colourful past, based in the youth revolutions of their country. Paul Weixler was a legend in Zurich. And it took him 25 years to release his pop / blues album, which was launched in 2003. You probably won't understand the Swiss lyrics but you'll get his mix between I-love-the world and disillusioned wisdom. And if your heart doesn't ache yet, Achmed "El Tigre Tanguero" makes you long for a trip around the world with his heartbreaking songs.
Monday 8.20 pm, El Lokal
A park full of music
On Wednesdays, Bäckeranlage is the place to be if you like acoustic concerts. This week, with melodramatic pop by Euphròsina. If you listen carefully, you'll get to hear a few ironic and sometimes bloodthirsty stories by the three girls from Zurich. And the weather should be a bit better by the middle of the week as well.
Wednesday 8 pm, Bäckeranlage
Ron's gastro tip
My new neighbour L'Aperitivo del Leone welcomed me friendly with the speciality of the house – Italian wine and antipasti. Very tasty! If you walk down the steps you'll reach the grotto. In this cosy cellar environment – nope, not a contradiction – where you'll get to eat your main course. Lovers of Italian cuisine will find a new home here.

Going to the cinema is one of my favourite ways to spend an evening. Especially to see intelligent films with heart, just as Riffraff or Houdini tend to show. As my last cure for your January blues, I give away a free annual pass for the rest of 2015 for these two cinemas. Just send me an e-mail

All art, on some level, must be autobiographical. If it doesn’t uniquely reflect the artist or their view of the world, then why should we care about it? Mental by UK performance artist The Vacuum Cleaner is an intensely personal piece about the artist’s own history of mental illness and activism. It is a brutally honest, powerful and often funny portrayal that will feel more like confession than performance. To add to the intimacy of the evening, Mental will take place in the bedroom of an apartment in town. Due to this, there are only a limited number of seats available and reservation will be required.
Thursday 8 pm, Friday 6 pm & 9 pm, Gasometerstrasse 45, 8005
Add to favourit  Festival: Not a million miles away
Zurich will always be my first love but that doesn’t mean I can’t have a wandering eye for the satellite towns that make the extra effort to flirt with me. Over the coming week, Baden will be having what is, possibly, the first music festival of the year in Switzerland. The One Of A Million Music Festival has a line-up of 40 bands from across 13 countries that will be playing live in 3 intimate venues around town, as well as a scattering of smaller venue sites. The bands are all under-the-radar, which suits a boutique festival like this, but all have an indie melodic quality that will make a trip outside of Zurich’s city limits a treat. I have 1 x 2 tickets to give away for this Friday or Saturday. E-mail me, letting me know which day you’d like to go.
Friday to Saturday (7th Feb), Baden
Add to favourit  Happy 6000th
I’m not sure who’s been keeping count but Supermarket will be celebrating its 6000th day anniversary this weekend. So you don’t need to calculate, that makes it nearly sixteen and a half years old, and as far as a club’s lifespan in Zurich goes, this makes Supermarket one of the wise old men of the night. To celebrate the occasion, many of the dj’s who have defined Supermarket’s sound over the years will be returning for a party that will start at 10 pm on Saturday and continue, non-stop, until 6 am on Monday. I think Supermarket just looked you straight in the eye and dared you to call it old!
Saturday 10pm to Monday 6 am, Supermarket
Add to favourit  Concert: Graceful expulsion
Some music defies genre descriptions. With Canadian band Cold Specks you might go with gothic-gospel, or even soul-punk but either way you’ll end up sounding like you’re trying too hard. The lead singer of the band, Al Spx, has a voice that would sound at home bouncing off the rafters of a gospel church, while her band makes music that swirls and bucks behind her like a dark stormy sea. Their debut album was called I Predict a Graceful Expulsion, and that’s probably the best description of their music you’ll find. They play at Rote Fabrik on Saturday.
Saturday 9 pm, Rote Fabrik
Add to favourit  Concert: Mali music
If the Blues had a birthplace it is now commonly thought to be in Mali’s soulful and moody stringed instrument tradition. Boubacar Traore has been a master of the Mali desert Blues since the early sixties but, like all good Blues-men it seems, his path wasn’t easy. From legendary status in his youth, he then spent twenty years out of the music business trying to make a living for his family. After being rediscovered in the late Eighties, he then moved to France to work as a labourer after his wife died, only to be rediscovered again years later as interest in ‘world music’ grew. Now, as an old man, he is again in his rightful place, recognised as one of the greats, playing music that both soothes and saddens the soul. He’ll be at Moods on Sunday.
Sunday 7 pm, Moods

Add to favourit  New kid on the block: Pleasant pop up

Last week, the pop up Penthouse Gallery moved into the former house of pleasure «Irma la Douce». Until March you’ll find exhibitions, performances and readings as well as a wine bar. You can view their first exhibition «Modification» every Thursday and Saturday until 5th February – or just go to see how a brothel looks inside. Afterwards they’ll change the setting, which will start with another opening party.
Penthouse Gallery, St. Jakobstrasse 52, 8004. Opening hours: Thursday & Saturday from 6 pm to 10 pm

Add to favourit   Eating: Little Brazil
Just as the name Little Brazil suggests, this restaurant serves great Brazilian food and is rather snug, in a good ‘we’re all in this together’ type of way. You can, of course, start things off with a caipirinha, just like mama used to make, if mama didn’t know when to stop pouring the cachaça. The menu has a great choice of food from the selection of small starters to mains that included Picanha and Moqueca (my favourite), and everything is looked after by the great women who both own and run the place, and make you feel welcome in their little corner of Brazil.
Little Brazil, Schmidgasse 6, 8001
Add to favourit  Good to know: Just justice

New year, new laws so it’s high time to fill you in on the latest changes of our justice system. Compared to other years, there are just a few and none of them drastic. But there is one modification that might become important to you, if you ever drive a car in Switzerland and if you don’t take the alcohol limit that seriously. If you cause an accident under the influence of alcohol, or because you fall asleep or consumed drugs (zero-tolerance) it will be seen as intentional negligence. Until 2014, your insurance company had the right to pass on all costs of the accident to you. But you were able to protect yourself from that with yet another insurance. Since the beginning of 2015, insurances must pass on all costs without exception. One more reason why it’s great to live in Zurich – you don’t need a car.

Add to favourit  Web tip: Where is Ron?

A while ago, I came across an old film-roll in my attic and decided to send it to «Rescued Film». Also, I wasn’t sure if the photo shops in town still develop films or if they’d just laugh in my face. «Rescued Film» is an online image archive, specialising on pictures between the 1930s and the 1990s. Amongst them you’ll find historic photos – for example from the Second World War - and personal snapshots. If you look very closely you might even find one of me, hanging out with my buddies looking extremely cool in our 1990s outfits. And no, it wasn’t a costume party.
