Dream of art

The Proposal is an art space in a quite courtyard of Kreis 3 that will be showing 6 different prototypes that the artists hope will be made into fully realized pieces of art. If this wasn’t enough to excite you, the gallery also doubles as a fantastic B&B. You have the chance to sleep in the gallery itself or in a 1977 Peugeot J7 bus outside. A bagel breakfast and use of the gallery bikes are also included. If you have anyone visiting Zurich or you just fancy a change from your own bedroom walls, this may be just what you’re looking for. Proposal No. 3 - The Human Print has its opening, with dj set, tonight.
Thursday 6 pm, The Proposal, Dubstrasse 33a, 8003

Mystery men

Signori Misteriosi is the new moniker under which four Zurich guys, all with long and winding musical pasts, have come together to record. They claim Ennio Morricone and Them Crocked Vultures as seemingly mismatched inspirations, but having seen them perform last year, there may be something to that. They play live, and show the video premier of their new single, Duty of Loyalty, at Papiersaal this Friday. This is a double bill, with Jesh in the co-starring role.
Friday 9.30 pm, Papiersaal

Skream and schout

Oliver Jones, aka Skream, is one of UK dubstep’s original and leading lights. Having been born in Croydon, ground zero for dubstep, his pedigree is clear. He’s also proven himself to have crossover appeal with the slow burning remix of La Roux’s ‘In for the Kill’ and his own top 10 single.  He comes to BLOK this Friday, accompanied by his faithful sidekick Sgt Pokes. In support are the KillOut AllStars and Dubsludge Collective. 
Friday 11 pm, BLOK Club

Bring the noise

As the cities of England burned last year and the wordless youth took out their frustrations on the consumer treats dangled, carrot-like, just in front of them, it seemed as if the time was ripe for a voice to rise above the clatter and move beyond the apocalyptic headlines. I don’t know if Scroobius Pip is that voice but he should be. More poet than rapper, he has anger and eloquence in equal measure and coming from the UK, has that underlying humour to his rhymes that tickle your ears. He plays Rote Fabrik on Saturday. 
Saturday 9 pm, Rote Fabrik

Mini metal, big noise

The ewz.stattkino season continues this Saturday with a performance of Never Hang Around by Minimetal.  This is an avant-garde performance combining cinema, performance art and hard rock music. It is a version of the famous Swiss Alps legend, where the creators of Sennentuntschi, an artificial female sex object made-out-of-straw, become the targets of her revenge. As you can tell this isn’t The Sound of Music! I have 3 x 2 tickets to give away. E-mail me.
Saturday 8 pm, ewz stattkino, Selnaustrasse 25, 8001

The Donor

What if you were the parent of twin daughters and it was within your power to save one of their lives, but not both? This is the premise for Helen Fitzgerald’s new book, The Donor. Although this may not sound like the most joyous of plots, Fitzgerald’s books are often filled with dark humour and unexpected hilarity, none more so than this one. She is at Kaufleuten on Wednesday to give a reading and answer questions, and I have 2 x 2 tickets to give away. E-mail me.
Wednesday 7 pm, Kaufleuten

Zurich has the highest club density in Europe, which is great for the nights and weekends but also means there is a lot of space underutilized during weekdays. With this thought in mind, the Milchbar was created. Setting up a mobile kitchen they conjure up simple, well-cooked menus daily. For only 10 francs you can choose either a meat or vegetarian menu, plus a salad and lemon water to drink. They also let you bring your own drinks. I've tried it: My wallet, my taste buds and I are very satisfied!
Monday to Friday 11:30 to 13:30 Milchbar (Abart), Manessestrasse 170, 8045

Guerrilla swings

Two Tampa Bay students mounted a handmade swing in the middle of their city. The reaction of passers-by was surprisingly great: first they stood talking, then they started to play and push one another and total strangers become temporary playmates. This simple idea was recognized as such a success that they the city council immediately set-up many more swings around the city. Conclusion: The simplest ideas often provide the strongest message.

Future now

The day on which the line between science fiction and reality disappears no longer seems to be far away. This brave new world is especially being driven by the Microsoft Kinect technology. In the video Kinect Effect, Microsoft shows us in the real world what, even only 10 years ago, would have been fantasy for the movies. Lo and behold!

It’s been a terrible snow season in the mountains this year but before the sun finally melts what’s left, I’ll be away for the next two weeks hunting down what I can find to slip and slide on.

Add to favourit  Party: Blazing beats
The Red Bull Music Academy is an ongoing global event that brings together musicians of all stripes to share and learn from each other – I’d say they give each other wings, if I were being a corporate shill, which obviously I’m not, so ignore that. On Thursday an Academy session is being held at Zukunft as one of the hip-hop greats comes to town to give a lecture. Just Blaze is producer, collaborator and beat-meister for the likes of Jay-Z, Kanye, Eminem and Roc-A–Fella Records. The evening continues with an after-party at Longstreet Bar with Just Blaze and London dj Benji-B in attendance. The lecture and after-party are free, so get there early, as it’ll be first-come-first-served.
Thursday 6 pm, Zukunft, 10 pm Longstreet Bar

Who needs stand-up when you can have made-up comedy? This Friday sees The Improv Comedy Kitchen coming to Boulevard and bringing with them some of the best comedians from the UK, USA and Canada to put on a totally unique show. You know the deal – you shout out aardvark, trombone and tap dance, and they’ll perform a (hopefully) hilarious scene incorporating your suggestions.
Friday 8 pm, Boulevard
Add to favourit  Party: Festival of light and beats
The Lighthouse Festival is a new underground electronic music festival that took place on the shores of the Adriatic Sea in Croatia for the first time last year, and will take place for the second time at the end of May this year. In an unusual twist, leading up to the actual festival, they take the festival on tour, visiting like-minded clubs to give a flavour of the event. This Saturday they’ll be hosted by Hive with djs Mind Against and Oliver $ headlining as well as a selection of djs from the Hive Audio imprint. I have 2 x 2 tickets to give away. E-mail me.
Saturday 11 pm, Hive
Add to favourit  Concert: I’m a believer
On the surface Miriam the Believer may just be a Swedish-Iranian singer/songwriter, but once you hear her music and voice you will understand that she is a force of nature disguised in a female form. Her music is driven by rhythms that conjure up folk and spiritual traditions with operatic organ and strings layered on top, but it is her voice that takes centre stage as it swoops and glides between the howl of a banshee and the soft whisperings of the rain. She, and her band, are playing at Moods on Saturday night.
Saturday 8.30 pm, Moods

Beginning on Saturday and lasting until the 8th March is the zurich moves! - Contemporary Dance & Performance Festival, which brings international dancers and choreographers to Zurich to perform and discuss their art throughout the week. On Tuesday, as part of the festival, Kino Riffraff showcases the always-intimate relationship between dance and cinema as they dedicate an evening to some beautiful contemporary short films called Dance on Screen.

Boy and Bear may be a band that hail from Australia but would seem more at home in the sun-kissed hills of California, sometime in the mid 70’s. If this lack of originality and being on the cutting edge turns you off then you’ll be missing out on a band that has mastered the art of the simultaneously happy and melancholy tune, melodies to hum forever and vibes that’ll smother you in a golden haze. They play at Rote Fabrik on Wednesday night and I have 2 x 2 tickets to give away. E-mail me.

Add to favourit  New kid on the block: Coffee on speed
I have to admit, I was quite cynical when I saw the locale’s name: Benzin & Koffein. Just because it rhymes (well, kind of) it doesn’t necessarily go together, I thought. But after its opening last Saturday, I have to admit: I was wrong. The venue is half a café where I had a) one of my best take away coffees ever and b) was able to buy my absolute favourite breakfast - namely a bagel with humus spread. Watered and fed – I couldn’t remember what I was complaining about before. Ahh, the name. Well, the other half sells bike attire – motorbikes, of course. So the name is as perfect as the team behind the counter is friendly. Welcome! 
Benzin & Koffein, Aemtlerstrasse 48, 8003. Opening hours: Tuesday to Friday 8 am to 8 pm, Saturday 9 am to 4 pm
Add to favourit  Good to know: Vegetables come home

The past weekend felt like spring. And spring makes me think of fresh vegetables and fruits. So I had a look around town to find a few home delivery services for you. Vidis Kochtüte : Vidis Kochtüte supplies you with three recipes and the required ingredients. Since February, the team also offers vegetarian bags. I have 2 vegetarian bags to give away for free. Just check the website if your address lies within the delivery zone, send me an  email with your address. Bio-Milchmann: the service delivers organic and Demeter from Zurich’s farmers directly to your house. You can define your «subscription» yourself. They deliver not just vegetables and fruits but also eggs and meat. Bio Archehof : Archehof supplies you with seasonal vegetables all year round. They also offer an option for a bi-weekly delivery, which I like a lot. Brüderhof: Brüderhof offers local vegetables as well as eggs, milk, wheat and bread in a subscription of your choice. They bring your goods to various venues within town where you can pick it up.

The sun also reminds me to start on time with my garden work this year. With this in mind, I visited Veg and the City at Europaalle to find out everything an amateur needs to know. And my gut was right: End of February is the right time to start pre-cultures indoors. For a top result they offer courses for booking and a planting calendar for downloading. I have one paper pot press and two bags of guerilla seed bombst o give away for free. Just send me an e-mail.
