Add to favourit  Dear friends
Those who work with online media know the problem – BUGS. They sneak in and try to change the system. And until we find the problem and are able to fix it, a couple of weeks have gone by. Latest example: Our Cityscribe section. Therefore, further below, are some of the entries that were supposed to be published over the last two weeks. Big apologies to the cityscribes who were hoping to see their articles published before.
Give my love to the city, Ron

Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana. I can’t believe it’s been 3 years since Härterei opened its doors and like any respectable toddler, will be throwing a 2-night electro-pop/hip-hop extravaganza to celebrate the anniversary. Icelandic groove-meisters FM Belfast have been invited to bring their chaotic party vibes to Friday night and hip-hop royalty, in the form of dj Muggs of Cypress Hill, will be playing on Saturday.
Friday & Saturday 11 pm, Härterei

Moods will be bringing us an evening of French delights on Saturday with a double live set from singer L and rapper Karimouche . L comes from Paris and brings with her that city’s mix of ethnic rhythms wrapped in the warm seductions only French singers can evoke.  Karimouche, on the other hand, incorporates the eclectic inspirations of cabaret singing, dance and acting to her beat-box driven rapping. 
Saturday 8 pm, Moods

This Saturday, wearing green is a must, as we celebrate St Paddy’s day. In this spirit, a new Irish Pub opens its doors on that special day: The Pub. From 6 pm DJ Frédéric sets the tune and you get Irish beer as well as Irish stew. Sounds like a good place to start before heading to one of the parties in town: Irish Festival with live folk music Volkshaus, Music of the 80s and party tunes at Nelson Pub or house and club music at Lady Hamilton Pub. Happy St Patricks Day!
Saturday 6 pm, The Pub / 8 pm Volkshaus

Think big, is what Phonoflakes , a band from Zurich thought when they toured through the US for the first time. And got full success. Signed by a Californian label, they have just finished their second US tour, including a series of concerts in Mexico. While they play overseas in front of large audiences, you get the chance to see Phonoflakes in an intimate environment. Very intimate, as the concert takes place at Hafenkneipe this Tuesday. Expect melodic power pop and a lively live show.
Tuesday 8 pm, Hafenkneipe

Add to favourit  Eating at Zeughaushof
 
The sun is out and it’s lovely to spend lunch hour outside. But for me, it’s still too fresh for a cold lunch like a take away salad or sandwich. This week I discovered Zeughaushof . Outside, you’ll sit in the middle of Kasernenareal which feels like an oasis within the buzz of the town. Inside you find an airy, comfortable room. They offer several changing menus over lunch, seasonal and regional. The waiters are lovely and if you bring your sunglasses, you might never want to leave.
Restaurant Zeughaushof, Kanonengasse 20, 8004
 
 
Add to favourit  SXSW music
 

South-by-South-West (SXSW) is a sprawling citywide festival that takes place every year in Austin, Texas and features music, film and technology. It is one of the largest music festivals in the world with over 2,000 new and established acts playing across 90 venues. What I love about SXSW is that they provide a (legal) torrent file to showcase tracks from most of the bands playing. This year’s sampler file contains 1,219 tracks.  If this is too much for you to swallow in one go, someone has already listened and filtered them into a ‘best of’ podcast. This is a fantastic way to discover some great new music.

Christmas time is here again and just as Santa readies his reindeers, dons his red suit and packs his sack full of toys, I too will be avoiding real work over the next two weeks. The next newsletter you'll receive from me will be in 2015 but I've included some New Year’s parties in this one for those that will miss me.
Give my love to the city and a happy New Year to everyone, Ron

Add to favourit  Open Air: Christmas flames
 
Christmas always brings out the romantic Ronster in me. After all, isn’t love the greatest gift of all? (or it would be, if it weren’t for this excellent blue Snuggie. Hint, hint Santa). Anyway, if you wander down to Stadthausquai, near Rathausbrücke, this evening you can take part in the Zürich Christmas tradition of Lichterschwimmen, where hundreds of people will be releasing little boats filled with candles into the Limmat. Hot punch and sweet treats will also be on hand as you gaze dreamily into the flickering river.
Thursday  5 pm – 7 pm, Stadthausquai, near Rathausbrücke

Add to favourit  Stage: Vaudeville vandals
 
The Tiger Lilies have the air of a vaudeville act that could have been performing in an old pub, on a dark and foggy London street, just as Jack the Ripper was having his dastardly way in the shadows. They mix music hall and vaudeville with a punk attitude and ghoulish humour that will make you laugh, while at the same time wondering if you should be laughing at all. Their new show, The Very Worst of The Tiger Lilies, is at Theater Rigiblick on Friday.
Friday 8 pm, Theater Rigiblick
 
Add to favourit  Cinema: Angel’s wings
 
If, despite the tinsel, the glittering lights and queuing up to buy presents, you still haven’t been fully embraced by the Christmas spirit, might Dr Ron recommend a shot of his finest, Grade A, pure-cut never-fails remedy. On Saturday and Sunday, Film Podium will be showing Frank Capra’s Christmas classic It’s A Wonderful Life. If you’ve never seen the film before then prepare to leave the cinema with your heart all aglow and a glisten in your eye. If you have seen it, then go renew your faith in your fellow man and repeat after me, “Attaboy, Clarence!”
Saturday 8.45 pm, Sunday 2.30 pm, Film Podium
 
Add to favourit  Concert: Winter legends
 
When the legends of El Dorado were first whispered, about that mysteries and lost city of gold in the Andes mountains, could they ever have thought that a bar in Zurich, coincidentally named Eldorado, would also contain a plethora of shiny riches and treasures, but would be infinitely more locatable. Probably not. Either way, the nearly unlimited number of beers (101, actually) they offer would be temptation enough for the meekest of explorers but this Sunday they are also hosting the Winter Unplugged Music Festival, where a nearly unlimited number of performers (5, actually) will be showcasing their acoustic skills from the haunting sounds of Me.Man.Machine to the poetic heartbreak of Faber.
Sunday 7 pm, Eldorado

Add to favourit  Preview 1: Double-bill
 

Christmas always brings out the big softy in me, although that may also be the Glühwein working it's wily magic, so I was happy to see that Xenix are showing an open-air (yes, outside) double-bill on Christmas Eve (Wednesday). The first is the Buster Keaton classic silent comedy, The General, where our hero tries to get back the two loves of his life: his bride and his locomotive (not necessarily in that order). Blankets will be available but bring your own to guarantee one. The second movie is screened indoors: In «Barbarella» Jane Fond's sex-bomb tries to save the world, to do this she has to face some unique adventures first. First film starts at 6.30 pm, second at 9 pm.
Merry Christmas!

Gian has a dream. At present he is in Vietnam, where he helps kids in foster home. By the end of the year, he will return home, but before he leaves he would like to give as many children as possible a Christmas present. For this he collects money on the crowdfunding-platform 100-days.net. He has seven days left to raise the rest of the money, so give him – and the kids in Ho Chi Minh City – a boost.
