Everything must go
 

Have you ever sat in a nice restaurant and thought to yourself, ‘That lamp would look great in my boudoir, I wonder if I could carry it out of here without anyone noticing?’ No? Maybe it’s just me then! Well for any would-be kleptomaniacs out there, Bohemia and its sister restaurants are selling off much of their used and un-used stock over the next few days. At Two Spice in Oelikon, furniture, lamps, crockery, pictures and even some clothes from Wink are all up for grabs, with the added bonus of not having to look furtively over your shoulder as you leave.
Thursday to Sunday Thur/Fri 12pm – 8pm and Sat/Sun 10am to 6pmTwo Spice, Birchstrasse 230, 8050

Musical feast
 

The M4Music festival is back again. The annual shindig for all of music’s great and good to gather in our city and blow our little minds. As well as panel discussions, conferences and a democlinic for aspiring musicians there are, of course, a fantastic selection of bands, singers and djs to see play live. My highlights this year include The Maccabees, Mark Lanegan, Modeselektor and Christopher Christopher
Thursday to Saturday at various times, Schiffbau, Moods and Exil

Bikes, bikes, bikes
 
The sun is shining, the birds are singing – it’s time to get back on your bike. If you don’t own a bicycle, be assured that it’s the easiest and often the fastest vehicle to get around town. This Saturday you can buy a cheap bike at the City Council Bike Auction. All bikes are second hand, have been collected in Zurich and which no one has claimed back. The city fathers have then kindly cleaned and fixed them. Bids start at 50 francs. If you don’t have time to go this Saturday, the next auction takes place on 28th of April.
Saturday 1 pm viewing / 1.30 pm auction, Limmatstrasse 114

Flower power
 
The Night of the Flowers reminds party goers in Zurich of bygone times when gay and techno parties took place underground. Area, who organizes the event at Hive this Saturday, is also history but their Flowerparties are still an annual part of Zurich’s nightlife. Beautifully decorated with flowers everywhere you won’t doubt for a second that spring is here. So let’s dance until dawn for a beautiful summer to tunes by Don Ramon, Valentino, Jesse Jay, Mandeg, Cherie und Franco. I also have 3x2 tickets to give away. Email me

Soul boy
 

Listening to a Mayer Hawthorne song you might be forgiven for thinking his sweet falsetto belongs to a black man from 60’s Detroit rather than the nerdy looking white guy from LA that he actually is. He wears his retro record collection proudly on his sleeve and for one night only, at Hotel Rivington & Sons, will be bringing it with him as he plays, what I expect to be, a fantastic dj set. Entrance is free.
Saturday 11pm, Hotel Rivington & Sons

Eating at Plüsch
 
Café Bar Plüsch is a Zurich veteran. Plüsch means plush, which describes how this venue’s interior looked years back when I’d just moved to Zurich. It opened its doors 13 years ago and I’ve had many good times in there, but it was about time that a new lick of paint and polish were given to the old girl. In this new dress, they serve a range of breakfasts on Saturday and Sunday for the reasonable price of 10.50 francs per person (without drinks).
Plüsch, Aemtlerstrasse 16, 8003

Awesome tapes from Africa
 

While researching the local music scene in Ghana on a scholarship from the US, Brian Shimkovitz would wander through the local street markets and began to buy cassette tapes of obscure African bands and musicians. After a time his collection grew to thousands of tapes and Brian had stumbled upon a musical underground whose sound was totally different to anything else going on in the world. This eventually led to his excellent blog, Awesome Tapes from Africa, where you can listen to all of his lo-fi, and totally unique, discoveries.

Add to favourit  Exhibition: T-shirt T-ribute
 
Apart from walls for graffiti, the only other modern canvas that gives artists and designers the ability to have their art seen by the masses is the T-shirt. From its beginnings as a garment worn by workers in factories and mines to its current place as the item of choice for individual statement and protest, the humble T-shirt has had quiet a journey. The exhibition at Starkart, T-ribute, is a celebration of the T-shirt, and especially contemporary T-shirt graphics. It’s been organised by Amateur Magazine and will show 100 T-shirts from four decades selected by 10 European T-shirt aficionados (yes, such people exist). On Saturday they’ll have a T-shirt market for you to pick up your own designs.
Thursday to Sunday, various times, Starkart Gallery
 
Add to favourit  Party: Behind the scenes
 
As you wander the streets of Kreis 4 you may occasionally notice, through an alleyway or opening in the buildings, open courtyards hidden at the centre of the surrounding architecture. Unless you live in the apartments, these courtyards are normally inaccessible but this Friday, Zukunft are organising themselves a little HofFest. They will open up their own private space behind Bar3000 and fill it with live music from Teké Acoustic Sessions, grilled homemade sausages from the Lier family and a Filipino Food Corner. If the weather refuses to believe summer has gone, I don’t see why we shouldn’t too. Entry is free.
Friday 5 pm, Zukunft (behind Bar3000)
 
Add to favourit  Stage: Dj performance
 
Dj’s may think they’re something special and certainly when one of them plays a beat that gets this Ronster doing his slippery shuffle on the dance floor, i may agree, but to call it art was always a stretch. That’s until performance artist and dj Nic Lloyd put together his Don’t Judge show at Gessnerallee. His one-man, two-turntable show will see him using vinyl to mix and manipulate fragments of words, instructions, music and sounds to assemble new language structures that, he hopes, will influence the audience. You may feel your feet wanting to dance but your mind won’t be too far behind.
Saturday 9 pm (also on Sunday through Thursday), Gessnerallee
 
Add to favourit  Concert: Jazz wars
 
I think the saying goes something like, ‘caught between a rock and a jazz fan’. Now, i could be wrong but then it wouldn’t fit so well with this piece of writing, so I’m going with it. Over the weekend you’ll get a chance to hear some of Switzerland’s finest jazz musicians play some of the finest rock music in a cross-genre showdown at Hits Recycled in Moods. On Saturday it will be Pink Floyd vs. Black Sabbath, while on Sunday it will be The Police vs. U2. Each jazz band will compete against each other head-to-head, hit-for-hit, song-for-song in a battle for the loudest audience applause of the evening. Now, if only there was a phrase that could describe being at an evening like this…hmmm.
Saturday 8.30 pm and Sunday 7 pm, Moods
 
Add to favourit  Street: No cars go
 
Monday is International Car-Free Day, when many cities around the world encourage, or outright ban, drivers from using their cars. This allows pedestrians, public transport and cyclists to reclaim streets that are clean, quiet and safe, at least for one day a year. Strangely, given the number of bikes in the city, Zurich does not participate in Car-Free Day but given the Swiss view that ‘people-power’ can change most things eventually, there is an organised Velodemo taking place Monday evening. Starting at Bürkliplatz, hundreds of cyclists will set off for a tour of the city, and just by sheer numbers will reclaim any section of the city they happen to be passing through. The city cycle should last about an hour, returning to Bürkliplatz where a cycling fashion show and music will await you.
Monday 6.30 pm, Bürkliplatz
 
Add to favourit   Concert: French delusion
 
If there’s one thing the French know how to do well, outside of baguette baking, it is electro-pop. Issac Delusion hail from Paris and, despite the name to the contrary, are a band. The four members all seems to bring a diverse mix of sounds to the party with glimpses of Aphex Twin, Pink Floyd and Sufjan Stevens all somehow making their influences felt, but it is the singer’s soft, folky vocals that gently float over the electronic rhythms and melodies that elevate Issac Delusion to something special. They're playing at Bar Rossi on Tuesday evening.
Tuesday 8 pm, Bar Rossi

Add to favourit  Eating: Fun, fun, fondue
 

The last few days were full of sunshine but despite the golden rays, autumn is in the air. And autumn is followed by winter, which is fondue season!  However, Rimini doesn’t stick to seasonal labels and has already started with melted cheese dishes this week. From Thursday until 18th October, their open-air fondue parlour is open daily, even in bad weather. They're stocked up on blankets and Schnapps to keep you warm. 28 francs/person
18th September – 18th October, daily from 5.30 pm, Rimini

 
Add to favourit  Shopping tip: Just do it (yourself)
 

Finding the right present can be difficult: Too expensive, too small, too self-made. I love home-made presents but they shouldn’t look like a three-years-old's piece of work. Sueco is a great alternative. They offer DIY-sets which include all required materials. You just have to sew the leather pieces together according to their instruction. Like that, even beginners manage to create stylish simple bags, covers or wallets.

 
Add to favourit  Good to know: Back in the day
 

Whenever you wander around the Old Town you might think that time has stood still in the city. The stones have an air of eternity to them. But if you compare todays Zurich to the Zurich of 1793, many things have changed (and I’m not just talking about hygiene). For example, the lake came all the way down to Börsenstrasse and extensive gardens were situated between Talacker and Sihlporte. How do I know this? The official Geoportal put together the drawings by engineer Johannes Müller from 1793 with current street view images. A slide function lets you slip into the past and discover what the city was like back in the day. Just follow the link and click ok. 

 
Add to favourit  Web tip: Dali Dinners
 

Salvador Dali wasn’t just a painter, he was also involved in publishing a cook book. Top chefs as well as his wife Gala created the recipes while Dali was responsible for the illustrations. This oeuvre «Les Diners de Gala» is out of print, but thanks to the virtual world I found some images and recipes online at «Brain Pickings». Let me know how your dishes turn out.
