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

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

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.

Next week, Zurich celebrates Sächseläuten, I celebrate 10 years and the workers celebrate the international labour movement. I won't be able to send you a newsletter, so this issue includes tips for both weeks. 
Give my love to the city and I'll see you on Tuesday, Ron

Add to favourit  Festival: Square one
 
From initial planning until completion last year, it’s taken fourteen years to get Sechseläutenplatz to be the gleaming modern space that we see today, and this weekend is the official opening celebrations. There’ll obviously be food and drink, especially from Graubünden which is where the new stone floor originated, but there’ll also be an Open-air cinema tonight, a music festival on Friday, a circus and opera festival on Saturday and a family day on Sunday. You can also get your photo taken with the Böögg before he meets his fiery doom in the service of weather forecasting.
Thursday to Sunday, various times, Sechseläutenplatz
 
Add to favourit  Dance: Step up
 
If the sunshine and blossoms have given you a little spring in your step lately, you’re not alone, as Dance Festival Steps comes to Zurich today and will stay for three weeks. Steps is the largest contemporary dance festival in Switzerland and draws in many international dance companies that tour throughout the country. The Zurich performances include a Taiwanese fable incorporating textile art, Japanese hip-hop and an Israeli synchronised techno troupe.
Thursday to 17th May, various times, various locations
 
Add to favourit  Party: Plastic beats
 
Just like his name suggests, Dutch dj legend Legowelt puts together various forms of music to create a whole that is uniquely his. He’s described his output as romantic-ghetto, techno-funk and even eurohorror-soundtrack but whatever it is it’s a damn-sight cooler than a plastic man with a silly haircut. He’ll be playing at Zukunft on Friday night with support from a selection of Zurich’s finest.
Friday 12 am, Zukunft
 
Add to favourit  Concert: Time warp
 
If you’ve ever felt you were born a little out of time, spare a thought for the Electric Swing Circus from the UK. They’re a fantastic 20’s jazz and swing band that combine their tunes with club beats from today, whether that’s dubstep, breakbeat , house and even reggae. What they do prove is that music may have changed but partying has been pretty consistent through the decades. They play live at Komplex Klub on Saturday.
Saturday 10 pm, Komplex Klub
 
Add to favourit  Festival: Spring has sprung
 
If those spring feelings just won’t leave you alone and you have the urge to be part of nature’s glorious cycle of rebirth and growth, rather than go looking for love in all the wrong places, why not get yourself down to Zurich’s Botanical Gardens for their Spring Festival on Sunday. Of course you’ll be able to buy plenty of spring plants for your windowsill, balcony or garden but they will also have a blossom deli, floral teas and spices you can mix yourself, beekeepers, soap making, guided tours of the gardens, food, drinks and music supplied by Die Blaskommoden.
Sunday 11 am to 4 pm, Botanischer Garten Universität Zürich, 
Zollikerstrasse 107, 
8008

Add to favourit  Festival: Men in tights
 

It's that time of the year again, where a part of Zurich's male population plays Robin Hood - or at least «Men in Tights». And where most of us get half a day off! The tradition dates back to the Middle Ages. The festivities start with the children's parade on Sunday but the highlight is on Monday when the guilds march through the centre – this year for the first time including the female guild. When the church bells start to ring at 6 pm (which is why it's called Sechseläuten) it's time to burn the Böögg, a snowman effigy stuffed with wadding and firecrackers. The sooner its head explodes, the better the summer weather forecast. The area by Bellevue will be very crowded but there are loads of stalls to get a bite to eat or a drink.
Monday 28th April from 3 pm, city centre

 
Add to favourit   Party: Happy Ron
 

On Tuesday, it’s my tenth anniversary and I look forward to celebrating with all of you. You’ll receive a special newsletter from me on the day itself with more details to all the surprises I organised.
Tuesday 29th April from 6 pm, Zollstrasse/Ambossrampe

 
Add to favourit  Worth Reading: Hair of the dog
 

«The only way to avoid a pounding head and queasiness the morning after is to drink in moderation», explains Anne Harding in the Men’s Health article «10 hangover remedies, what works?». I don’t expect you’ll do that on my party. But as your employer most likely awaits your arrival on Wednesday morning, the rest of the article might be helpful. Anne tells what might cure your hangover and what might make it worse.

 
Add to favourit   Festival: May Day
 

Zurich celebrates the international labour movement every 1st of May. Not all parts of Switzerland do that, so once again I’m glad I’m living in this town. The demonstration starts at 9.30 am in the city centre and ends at Helvetiaplatz. Afterwards there will be a large May Day party at Kasernenareal with international specialities, a very mixed crowd and various sounds. A great place to mingle on a free sunny day.
Thursday 1st May all day, all over town

 
Add to favourit  Vernissage: Bulgarian design

Fashion writer Tsitaliya sent out a fashion invitation to bring more international designers to Switzerland. With the result that at her first seasonal one-day pop-up shop four designers from Bulgaria will present their work and tell their story of their creative journey. To stimulate all your senses, there will also be traditional Bulgarian nibbles as well as a short photo-shoot on the programme.
Sunday 4th May 10 am to 3 pm, Nuyu at Utoquai 37
