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.

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.

Add to favourit  Party: Smoke gets in your eyes
 
They’re calling it Zigiraum but I think this is just to lure and corrupt the youth of Zurich to follow the smoky, dark side. In reality Zigiraum is a free club night at Stall 6 that is half inside and half outside, allowing you to enjoy the decadent thrills of night clubbing under the decorative stars of night time (with the occasional puff if you’re so inclined). Friday is the opening night with indie rock djs Pat & der Zensor and Milieu Mauri. Other Zigiraum nights will include an eclectic mix of djs from electro to African only vinyl to rocknroll. Free entry.
Friday 5 pm (bar), 10 pm (club), Stall 6

Add to favourit  Party: Radio Z
 
To every thing there is a season. Although I'm pretty sure the writers of those words weren't referring to Zurich's summer nightlife when they wrote them, it applies beautifully to the annual 30-day sound blast that is Rundfunk.fm. Starting this Friday, as it has for the past 13 years, Rundfunk will take over the radio and Internet airwaves of Zurich, and the world. This year the one hundred dj's and music makers will be broadcasting live from Geroldstrasse, rather than its usual Landesmuseum home. In addition to the music, they’ll be drinks and food on offer, as this cool corner of Zurich becomes a broadcasting beacon to the world.
Friday until 15th August, Opening weekend only (this Fri/Sat) 5 pm to late, Saturday - Wednesday 5 pm to 12 am, Thursday/Friday 5 pm to 2 am, broadcasting live all day, everyday, Geroldstrasse 15
 
Add to favourit  Concert: Have guitar, will travel
 
Brett Newski is an American touring musician of the old school variety - through a simple twist of fate he found himself in Vietnam and, strapping his acoustic guitar to his back and riding a beat-up motorcycle, he toured throughout Asia playing rooftops, apartments, street corners or anywhere he could find a willing audience. He now pulls into Zurich at the Kiosk on Josefwiese to play his folk-punk tunes full of catchy melodies and cutting wit. If you like a little Bob Dylan or Jack White, or just want to spend a summer’s evening relaxing in a park listening to tales from another world – Brett’s for you.
Saturday 6 pm, Kiosk at Josefwiese
 
Add to favourit   Party: Living the lake life
 
This Saturday is actually going to be a sun-day, with blue skies and temperatures tickling the lower 30’s, and so it would seem that this weekend’s dance festival on the lake has pretty perfect timing. The Naturklang Festival at Ganz Yachting has four dance floors, both inside and out, and fantastic djs from across the world turning up. If you need a break from the dancing they also have food, drinks and smoothies on-site, parasols and cushions to relax and, of course, the lake is just a dive away.
Saturday 11 am until Sunday 10 pm, Ganz Yachting, Bellerivestrasse 264, 8008
 
Add to favourit  Open Air: Home and garden
 
For five Sunday’s during the summer the eleven housemates of the old ‘Alten Trotte’ house in Wipkingen transform their large garden into Kafi Duzis, a place where friends, family, locals and perhaps you, can enjoy a real community experience. With homemade food and cakes, a flea market, kids activities, a little live music, decorations and a group of people just looking for that sunny Sunday afternoon feeling, you might like it so much you’ll be asking if they have any spare rooms you could move into.
Sunday  3 pm until 9 pm, Alten Trotte, Nordstrasse 331, 8037
 
Add to favourit  Art: Past present
 
As well as being situated on a hill in the beautiful Rieterpark, the Museum Rietberg is the only art museum of non-European cultures in Switzerland. The question of how works of art from distant lands, cultures and time can still hold meaning to a 21st Century Western audience is addressed in the new exhibition Gastspiel. Twenty-one Swiss contemporary artists have each entered into a dialogue with pieces on show at the museum via site-specific installations, interventions in the park, performance, theatre, and literature in an attempt to extract new meaning from both the old and new.  
Sunday until 9th November, Closed Monday,10 am to 5 pm (Wed 8 pm), Museum Rietberg

Fischer's Fritz  is the tasty fish restaurant located in Zurich's lakeside campsite. Yes, Zurich has a campsite. It’s a beautiful spot directly at the lake and It’s where I met Suzy. Beautiful, shiny, American Suzy. She is an airstream overland  from Florida, and as she just turned 40, she found her final resting place on the shores of the our lake. I have one memorable night for two people to give away for free. Suzy will be your perfect hostess. Just send me an e-mail

Add to favourit  Good to know: Summer in the city
 
School holidays started this week and I can already tell that Zurich is emptier than usual. Which I like a lot. For all of you who like to enjoy the summer in the city, here's a little overview of what's going on over the next few weeks regarding open-air events. CINEMAXenix Open air , until 16 August: in the middle of Kreis 4, this year with almost exclusively German and Swiss German film. I have 1x2 tickets to give for the US Nascar-film Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (shown on Friday, 8.8.2014) from 2006. Just send me an emailFilmfluss , until 27 July: Enjoy films at the Limmat with German, French and English films, such as Now You See Me this Friday Killer Elite on Saturday. Ciné au Lac, until 17 August: The Orange Cinema sits on the right lake side, starting today with Fading Gigolo. CONCERTS:  Bäckeranlage, every Wednesday: Regional bands play unplugged - and if you don't like the sound, it's a nice place to be anyway. Oh See Festival, 17.-19. July: Rote Fabrik hosts several concerts right a t the lake ranging from indie to disco, rock and folk.  Zurich Openair: 28.-31. August: Within the almost endless line-up there is something for everyone, from The Editors to Bloody Beetroots (best live band ever!) and from Morcheeba to Manic Street Preachers.

Next to the former  train station Letten  – yes, there used to be a train station at the river, today only the station house remains – there is a charming space, which has been creatively used as a parking lot. The cars were removed but the city council hasn’t decided yet what to do with this spot, so they are looking for ideas. You can post your suggestions for a temporary usage  here and I'll keep my fingers crossed. Keep me posted about your ideas.
 
Add to favourit  Web tip: From above
 
Do you know the definition of the beginning of the technological age? When «love is in the air» is replaced by «drone is in the air». Terrible jokes aside, the page Dronestagram  pictures Zurich and Switzerland from above in short film footage. However, as they show my beloved city and country, love remains in the air. Or at least a pun of some sort.
