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!

Add to favourit  Festival: Lakeside lethargy
This weekend is full of celebrations and parades of one sort or another, and spanning the entire time from Thursday to Sunday is Lethargy at Rote Fabrik. Often billed as the alternative alternative to the Street Parade, they make sure they cram as many live bands, djs and performance pieces into four days and nights that the name Lethargy seems to mock the very idea of the English language. As a refuge from, and an extension of, the Street Parade, Sunday will be an open air and free affair.
Thursday 8 pm, Friday 9.30 pm–6 am, Saturday 9.30 pm-7 am, Sunday 1 pm, Rote Fabrik
Add to favourit  Party: Swiss national day
That holiday you’ve been given on Friday isn’t just because you’ve been extra diligent at work, although we all know that’s true but is, of course, to celebrate Swiss National Day. Now, if you really want to get your Swiss game-face on, you could maybe eat brunch at one of the farms in the Zurich area, go see the celebrations on Rütli Meadow, where the original three-Canton Swiss alliance was agreed or even ride a cow on a cow-trekking day.

If you’d prefer to dial it back a little and just enjoy a party or two in town, then you could try the Wunderbar Openair in the garden of the Kreis 5 Quartierhaus. In the afternoon they’ll have a children’s programme, then as the evening progresses bands and dj’s with an African and Latin American flavour will play. You can bring along you own food to grill or try some of the African specialties on offer.

At Bäckeranlage, the Äms Fäascht is promoting itself as the Multicultural Alternative to 1st August. Bands, singers and even comedians who reflect the international diversity of Zurich will be playing. You’ll also be able to sample food from around the world.
Friday 3 pm Wunderbar Openair, Kreis 5 Quartierhaus, 2 pm, Äms Fäascht, Bäckeranlage
Add to favourit  Party: Backstreet parade
If you’re anywhere within the city centre limits on Saturday, the Street Parade is going to be unavoidable, and if you’re looking to have a good time, you certainly won’t need me to point you in the right direction – just pull up your lycra thong and look around you. If, however, you’re looking for something off the beaten track, well, you’ve come to the right man.

Far from the madding crown, perched up on Uetliberg, is Im Sonnenbühl, who are offering a Summer of Love lounge party. With live music and dj’s, bar, food and pool. Tickets are limited.

Zukunft will be having their own block party on Dienerstrasse during the early evening, as dj David August fly’s in from Berlin to show why he’s considered a star in the clubbing world. He’ll be supported by label mates and Zurich dj duo Adriatique, among others.

If you head out to Zurich West and climb up to the rooftop of the Bananen Reiferei, you’ll be in the company of a fine selection of dj’s as they party inside the club, outside on the terrace and await the sunrise on Sunday morning.

At Supermarket, you’ll have the chance to party at their daytime party, so even if the weather isn’t stellar, you’ll still have somewhere to dance yourself dizzy.
Saturday from 12 pm - Im Sonnenbühl, from 5 pm - Zukunft, from 6 pm - Bananen Reiferei, from 12 pm - Supermarket
Add to favourit  Party: Better late than never

If you're looking for venues to extend your parade pleasures, here are some suggestions: Wirtschaft zum Transit: offers an escape from the electro beats with concerts by Blind Butchers (country disco punk) and The Guests (punk rock). Afterwards Dj Spiegel Guyau sets the gems of music history to his own beats and makes you dream and dance until the sun is out. From 10 pm until the morning.  Alte Kaserne: comes with a massive line up with Oliver Koletzki, Sascha Braemer & Niconé, Lexy & K-Paul, Kellerkind. From 9 pm to 10 am. Frieda’s Büxe: in the words of «The Dritte Raum is playing. That’s all you need to know.» But I’m also a big fan of Bang Goes and Manuell, who are part of the line-up too. From 10 pm until the morning. Photobastei: gathers various local djs and suprises with a hidden cosmic disco floor. You need a flyer to get in – which you get prior to the event at the venue itself. From 10 pm to 8 am.

Add to favourit  Good to know: Light in the sky

I’m sure you also look forward to the long weekend that lies ahead of us. On Friday we celebrate our national day, but this year, there is no official firework-show, so you might want to get your own gear. Shops like Coop and Migros have fireworks in stock now. The law regulates that they’re not allowed to sell them until a few days prior. A great alternative is Atelier Bucher at Birmensdorferstrasse 257. It’s fully dedicated to sparkles in the sky and sells everything from smallest crackers to largest rockets. Just be aware that it’s actually forbidden to light fireworks except for the first of August.

Add to favourit   Eating: B like Bosporus

With five meter high rooms, Café Bebek has a true metropolitan feel, especially when you glimpse the trams through the largest window. The latest addition to the Kalkbreite complex opened its doors at the beginning of the month. It’s the sister of Maison Blunt at Kreis 5, which is visible when looking at the menu. The dominating theme is oriental food, which makes sense, when you name your venue after a trendy district on the Bosporus.
Café Bebek, Badenerstrasse 171, Zürich

Add to favourit  Shopping tip: Bye Bye Kalk

Temporärkalk closes its doors this Thursday. They will re-open the pop up store in a new location in September. But until then it’s goodbye for now. On their last evening they offer 30-70 percent discount as well as drinks.
Thursday 6 pm, Temporärkalk
