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.

All about expats
If you don't speak German but do like theatre, then Zurich is a tough place to live. But not this week. From Thursday until Saturday, Elevator Repair Service – a theatre ensemble from New York – plays an adaption of Ernest Hemingway’s novel The Sun Also Rises at Gessnerallee. You might recognize yourself in the play. It's about a group of expats on a trip to self-discovery who end up in Europe. Mostly drunk. The play is part of the Zürcher Festspiele and will be staged in English with German supertitles. Preview
Thursday, Friday & Saturday 8 pm, Gessnerallee
Summer feeling
When Gui Boratto comes to Hive, it must be summer. His melodic and dreamy tech house fits in well with the hot temperatures we're expecting. The same evening Zurich Evelin Fik and Danilo Scheider also launch their first album. So let's dance into the summer and show Gui that not only Brazilians can shake their booties.
Friday 11 pm, Hive
Like a VIP
Ever dreamt of going shopping like Madonna or the Beckhams? Well, I cannot give you their money but I can offer you 2x2 pre-shopping tickets to the new outlet Atelier Kalk at Kalkbreitenstrasse 43. They sell clothes by Dings, On y va, Street-Files, Nubuc, Monsieur Dubois, Opia, Maschenbrödel and Lia-ne for a discount price. With the ticket the shop will be all yours from 7-9 pm on Friday. Just send me a message. Afterwards the outlet opens at the weekend for everyone.
Pre-Sale: Friday 7-9 pm
Opening: Saturday & Sunday, 11 am to 7 pm
Cool down
Is summer too bright and breezy for you? Then don't miss Xeno and Oaklander from Brooklyn, New York who'll play live at Longstreet this Saturday. Their sound with analogue synthesizers and cool vocals is quite melancholic and dark, but very intriguing and tempting. However, the music itself won't cool you down, as space is limited. So get there in time.
Saturday 12 am, Longstreet
Over the rainbow
Arx-en-ciel in Wädenswil is the perfect open air festival for all of you who like concerts under the open sky but prefer to go home at the end of the night. Right at the lake, Everell will open the concert series. Then, changing from indie-rock to rock'n'roll, The Hillbilly Moon Explosion take over, followed by ska-punk band Pueblo Criminal and reggae talent Cookie The Herbalist. Afterwards the night train brings you back into town. I have 5x2 tickets to give away. Just send me a message.  
Saturday 7 pm, Wädenswil 
Happy Birthday
Exil is celebrating their second birthday – for a full week. From Monday evening until Sunday morning they party to funk, reggae, boggie, hip hop, rock and electro as if the next day didn't exist. Well, it doesn't: Exil takes a two week summer break. But then, I'm glad to hear, they'll be back. On Thursday for rap history entry is for free.
Monday to Sunday, Exil
Elisaburg – Summer garden
The neglected corner building at Elisabethenstrasse 3 underwent a make-over. And since the beginning of the month the Clube Social Crew with Partner Roy spoil their guests at Elisaburg with wonderful, seasonal dishes in an unpretentious environment. The building sits right at the corner to Zweierstrasse so whenever the weather is nice, you'll find them in their summer garden at the Zeughaushof from 5 pm.
Wednesday to Saturday, drinking from 5.30 pm, eating from 7 pm
I*Zurich - An Expat's Perspective
As promised, here is the first of what i hope will be an irregular and irreverent series about what happens when an expat and Zurich try to embrace. Kristi is the writer but you'll get to know her as you read her words, so all that's left is for me to welcome her and hope you all enjoy the inaugural I*Zurich - An Expat's Perspective.

Zurich Nakedness
I am American and I am a prude. I am almost getting used to the fact that the women at my gym like to blow their hair dry in the nude, apply mascara in the nude, go to the bathroom in the nude, and talk to their friends in the nude. Just yesterday I witnessed a nude woman dancing in the locker room. I am not sure what was more shocking, her dancing nude for everyone to see or the song she was dancing to. I suppose if I had her body, I would... more
