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).

Don’t forget that a short weekend lies ahead of you. At 2 am Sunday morning (Saturday night), the clocks are moved one hour ahead, as in most (but not all) countries worldwide. Well, at least our clocks will already be in summer spirit.

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  Stage: Listen without hearing
 
One of the prerequisites of being a dancer would seem to be the ability to hear the music you’re dancing to but with the production of Listen at Rote Fabrik, it goes to show what a hearist I really am.  To music played live by Fritz Hauser, a troupe of hearing and deaf dances will put on a delicately choreographed performance that, just like watching a blind tightrope walker, adds an extra level of awe to the amazement of just seeing the act itself.
Thursday, Friday & Saturday 8 pm, Rote Fabrik
 
Add to favourit  Party: Two door club
 
Two Door Cinema Club are UK indie-rockists with a dance floor bent, as they weave their electric guitars through suitably electro beats, and have become quietly huge while doing so. They’ve now been invited over to Zurich by the two party labels Killer & In/Out to show another aspect of their dance floor skills, as djs in Hive this Friday. They’ll be supported by a stellar array of local djs who also know how to put the indie into dance.
Friday 11 pm, Hive
 
Add to favourit   Festival: Free style
 
This weekend sees Europe’s biggest freestyle festival come to the shores of the lake as freestlye.ch plays host to some of the worlds best snowboarders, free skiers, mountain bikers and motocrossers. We may be less than an hour away from the Alps but, hell, who needs a geography lesson when you can build your own mountain, and cover it in snow, right here in town? They’ll also have skate parks, a labelworld, food, drink, live bands and djs just in case the excitement of watching death-defying leaps and twists starts to drag.  In town they also have a Riders Welcome Night party in Plaza on Friday and an After-Burner party at Härterei on Saturday. I have 1 x 2 tickets to give away for the freestyle festival. E-mail me.
Friday 11 pm, Plaza (Riders Welcome Night)
Saturday & Sunday from 11 am, Landiwiese ( freestyle festival)

Add to favourit  Concert: Lucky charm
 
Depending on where you come from in the world, a black cat crossing your path can either bring with it good or bad luck, but by letting rapper/dj duo Gato Preto (black cat in Portuguese) cross your path on Saturday at Stall 6 one thing is for certain: however lucky you feel afterwards, you’ll have danced yourself silly. With their music containing elements of African breakbeat, Brazilian baile funk and European house they seem to have distilled global dance rhythms into one undeniable and unstoppable sound. They’ll be followed by a dj set from Tropical Continent Soundsystem who bring together electronic beats with Caribbean percussion. All in all, in these waning days of summer, a perfect chance to disappear into more exotic climes.
Saturday 10 pm, Stall 6
 
Add to favourit  Event: Behind the scenes
 

This Saturday, some doors are wide open that are usually closed to the general public. Zurich University of the Arts: It’s been a long time since I visited Toni Areal, back then, the factory was filled with ateliers and spontaneous parties. Now, after many months (has it been years?) of renovation Toni Areal welcomes students. If your curious to see what the new campus looks like, head there this weekend. You find the full programme of guided tours and exhibitions on their website. Moods & Schiffbau: The theatres are reopening into a new season. In this spirit, jazz club Moods invites to music, dance and an artistic programme, while Schiffbau shows you where they create their beautiful sets and costumes. During the day, entry is for free. Have a look on their website to see what's going on when.
Saturday 10 am to 6 pm & Sunday 10 am to 4 pm, Toni Areal
Saturday 3 to 8 pm, Moods & Schiffbau

 
Add to favourit  Concert: The boys are back
 
Traditional music can often sound just plain old sometimes, but when it’s played raw with intensity and sincerity then those dusty old ghosts start to look pretty vivid to me. The Hackensaw Boys play a brand of bluegrass and country that feels a lot like punk rock, in that it slaps you about the face (in a loving way) and makes you want to jump about. They may have band members called Pee Paw and The Kooky-Eyed Fox but these good ol’ country boys have also supported The Flaming Lips and Modest Mouse, as well as playing music festivals all over the world. They’ll be playing El Lokal on Sunday night.
Sunday 8.20 pm, El Lokal

Add to favourit  Good to know: Election time
 

This weekend, the Swissies have a say on various matters, of those I believe that there are two thatcould matter to you: health insurance and housing in Zurich.  Health insurance: The initiative tackles the basic insurance, which covers the same services everywhere. The initiative believes that a public basic health insurance would lower the costs as no money is spend on attracting new clients. This cause is supported by the left while the liberal parties believe that private companies do a better job in keeping the costs down generally. Housing in Zurich: The second initiative only concerns the Canton of Zurich. Its plan: A fixed amount of lower-rent-apartments within large projects in return for a higher-density-building permission. As before, the left supports this, hoping for more affordable housing within town. The liberal opposition believes that additional regulations will lead to fewer projects generally. The decision is up to the majority as usual and you’ll find the results from Sunday (after the poll) in the Swiss press or on swissinfo.

 
Add to favourit  Eating: The month with an R
 

Regarding mussels I’m only familar with one rule: You should only eat them in months that contain an R. So after a few r-less month, September has started and therefore Moules & Frites are back in town. I spotted them on Les Halles' menue yesterday and I'm informed that  Dani H. is also preparing his tiny kitchen. But the highlight each year is Seebad Enge. Where you usually go for a swim in summer – well, maybe not this summer – they set the tables and serve Moules & Frites right at the lake until 18 October.

More or less one year ago, I told you about the pop-up-store at Idaplatz «Fein & Dein». They enjoyed their temporary stay and are back for good. As before they offer conserved organic goods from the summer harvest as well as beautiful vintage kitchen utensils. Additionally they also sell unique hand-made furniture and objects now.
Fein & Dein, Sihlfeldstrasse 57, 8003. Opening hours: Wednesday to Friday 1.30 to 7 pm, Saturday 1 to 7 pm
