Modern opera
 

I have mixed feelings about opera. I love the ‘hit’ songs but 4 hours spent on rather austere seating can test anyone’s love of singing peasants. That’s why a new opera at Theater Rigiblick by London’s The Opera Group, Babur in London, could lure me back. Set in contemporary London, it follows four men and women as they prepare to carry out a terrorist attack. As their mission draws closer the ghost of Babur, the first Mughal emperor and poet, visits and confronts them. The piece uses the contemporary Indian poetry of Jeet Thayil and original music by Edward Rushton. This is opera as documentary and all the more powerful for it.
Thursday/Friday 8 pm, Theater Rigiblick

Pile of music
 

Pile of Books is a great independent English bookshop. What it lacks in size it more than makes up for in charm, and the owner, Daniel, is always ready to offer a suggestion if you get blinded by browsing-mania. This Friday, Nashville singer/songwriter John Francis will be playing at the store. He mixes Americana, country and folk into a heady brew and with the intimate surroundings of books and wooden shelves should turn this into an intense evening of music.
Friday 8 pm, Pile of Books, Zentralstrasse 16, 8003

Soundscapes
 

As Abart slowly begins to wind down, they are putting on a few late Friday night specials, where the headlining act gets to rock out around midnight. This Friday, is a night of post-rock shenanigans with Swiss band Leech headlining and bringing with them their epic maelstrom of instrumental sound that is sure to vibrate your most secret places. Kid Ikarus, also from Switzerland and German band, Long Distance Calling, offer support with their own beautiful musical chaos.
Friday 9pm, Abart

Do what ya like
 

When Amboss Rampe put on a night called Do What Ya Like, they ain’t kidding. For starters you can warm up with a little game of funky ping-pong, and then just to show you can make spectacular moves without a bat in your hand, you can head to the party where djs Nicola Kazimir, Joe Bless and, of course, resident djs lobi rodio and kelstroem will play anything from boogie and disco to house and hiphop. 
Friday 9 pm, Amboss Rampe

Ice float
 

Iceland seems to be a place that inspires music that is ethereal but still able to grab you by the ear and insist on being listened to. Sigur Rós and Björk are maybe the most well known examples but Ólafur Arnalds should be next on your ‘Icelandic artists I should know’ list. He plays live at Moods this Saturday with songs that are mostly built around almost classical piano motifs, that then expand and swell as electronica and subtle drum patterns engulf you in their warm embrace. This is music to sooth the savage breast and make a Saturday night feel like a Sunday morning.
Saturday 9:30 pm, Moods

It’s a classic
 
I like cinema Uto with its nostalgic flair and plush velvet seats. This Sunday ioic screens Metropolis there. The German expressionist, silent science fiction film classic. It’s a silent movie but this Sunday, Insub Meta Orchestra, a large improvisation ensemble from all over Switzerland, will fill the air with live harmonies.
Sunday 7 pm, Uto Kino

Friday I’m in love
 
19 years ago, the brothers Freitag started sewing their bags out of old truck tarpaulin at home, dreaming the dreams of success as all start-ups do. Who would have thought that their bags are visible on all streets all over Europe? A good enough reason for the Museum für Gestaltung to honour Freitag with an exhibition, which looks back on the past two decades of the company until 29 July.

Map attack
 
Everyone knows the yellow dot, which eats blue dots while getting chased by ghosts through a maze. This if the principle of the cult game Pac-Man which inspired the inventors of Map Attack. Just that their version takes place in real life. The smartphone becomes your game console and the city your playground. Within a defined area, two teams play against each other trying to gather as many points as possible. Good luck!

Absolutely Zurich
 
From its sub-cultural start in the 70s and 80s to the boom of electronic music in the 90s, to dialect rap and the comeback of a varied band and producer scene in the millennium years. Definitiv Zurich invites you to discover four decades of Zurich sub- and pop-culture. Quite a few names and songs even I wasn’t familiar with.

Read more Hats by The Blue Nile:

We know that Ron Orp is the purveyor of all things contemporary. Gazing into the Orp orb, he foresees the sightings ahead we should be aware of. But sometimes, just sometimes, I think it’s good to glance to the past, if for no other reason than to be assured that everything that happened today actually existed, once tomorrow comes.
The enigmatic Scottish band The Blue Nile are glacial when it comes to album releases. They have produced only 4 albums in the last 26 years, but it is their sophomore effort, Hats, released in 1989 that I love and want to recommend to you.
Firstly, I should say that this is music of the night. For those tired moments you want to be wrapped in a warm embrace, when your heart is full but your bed empty...

Add to favourit  Festival: Boat beats
 
The world of exclusive yachting isn’t generally known for it’s affinity with dubtechno and minimalist electronic dance music, but this weekend the two worlds collide as Musiq brings their 4-day dance festival to the lakeside home of Ganz Yachting. Some fantastic underground djs and producers from around the world will be there to rock the dock and to prove once again that it’s not the size of your yacht, but the motion in your ocean, that’s important.
Thursday to Sunday 11 pm, Ganz Yachting, Bellerivestrasse 264, 8008
 
Add to favourit  Opening night: Soon is now
 
The Bernese gallery SOON has built itself a reputation as one of the coolest contemporary art spaces in the city and on Saturday they will be opening their new gallery in Zurich. As with Bern, their focus will be on young urban contemporary art and will bring in Swiss, as well as international, artists. They’ve also attached themselves to the restaurant Hofküche, so the gallery opening times can be a little more social. The opening night will feature music by Skor and selected works of eight Swiss artists including Remo Lienhard, Ata Bozaci and Serge Nyfeler.
Saturday 5 pm, Galerie SOON, Manessestrasse 170, 8045
 
Add to favourit  Party: Easter clubby
 
So it’s Easter, it’s Sunday night, and you’ve got that “no work tomorrow” tingle in your toes, not to mention that ‘too much chocolate yesterday’ feeling in your belly, well Zukunft have got it all worked out for you. In the club itself they’ve got genre-bending French dj Ivan Smagghe, who hasn’t seen a dance floor he doesn’t want to subvert and upstairs in Disco 3000 they have Alma Negra playing live. Based in Basel but originating from the Cape Verde islands off West Africa, they play a joyful, hypnotic music that blends the rhythms of African and the Caribbean.
Sunday 11 pm, Zukunft and Disco3000
 
Add to favourit  Tradition: Money vs eggs
 

In Australia they have their Bilby, in Poland they throw water and in the USA they guide eggs with a spoon. In Zurich the typical Easter tradition is called « Zwänzgerle». It takes place in pairs at Limmatquai on Easter Monday. One throws a 20-Rappen piece and tries to get it to lodge in the hard-boiled egg. If that works, the thrower can keep the egg, if the coin falls to the floor, it belongs to the person who held the egg.
Monday 10 am to 12 pm, Rüdenplatz

 
Add to favourit  Concert: Band aid
 
For a band whose lead singer sounds as if his world has just ended, Augustines make music that slaps you in the face with euphoria and hope. The trio from Seattle are, essentially, a rock band, in that they play guitar, bass and drums but they’ve managed to rise above those constraints with songs that are anthemic without being pompous and honest without being sentimental. They play at Bogen F on Wednesday.
Wednesday 9 pm, Bogen F

Urban Research isn’t, unfortunately, an experiment to see what happens when you walk naked through Paradeplatz, but rather an ongoing film and video program that allows film makers to document their explorations of urban life and the conditions they find there using experimental, documentary and abstract forms. At Gasthaus zum Bären on Wednesday a selection of these short films will be shown that include subjects as broad as anti-war demonstrations in Tel-Aviv, the Occupy movement in Turkey and a bike tour of female nude sculptures in East Berlin.
Wednesday 7 pm, Gasthaus zum Bären

Add to favourit  Good to know: Gesundheit
 

Are you one of the victims of hay fever? I offer you my sympathy and a solution that is better than staying indoors when the sun tempts you to come out and play. Tagblatt Zürich created a pollen map for the city where you see which streets you should avoid. If you’re allergic to birch for example, Kreis 6, Oerlikon and Schwamedingen are tough neighbourhoods for you. Also the parks and cemeteries can create a sneezing problem – so head to Fritschiwiese instead of Friedhof Silfeld. Next to the dangerous birches the map also provides information if you can’t stand ash trees, alder or hazel. Gesundheit!

 
Add to favourit  Eating: Charlemagne
 

The restaurant Karl has been part of Zurich’s Old Town for as long as I can remember. Whenever I passed Grossmünster I looked through the windows and thought to myself: «Looks cosy». But I never entered. Until a few weeks ago. For the first time I opened the door, let a lovely waiter guide me to my table, enjoyed a drink while waiting for my food and discovered that a) it’s really very cosy, b) it’s a great place for people spotting and c) the food is as promised: simple, fresh and good. If you dare, the inventive chef puts offal on the menu every Tuesday, but as attentive as they are, they also always offer an alternative.
Karl der Grosse, Kirchgasse 14, 8001. Opening hours: Monday to Saturday 8 am to 10 pm

I’m aware that most women like shoes so I’m happy to pass on this message from a good friend of mine: «Ron, you should write that Golden Carrot has the most beautiful shoes in town. Don’t look at me like this. Honestly, they’re stunning and fashionable and your female readers would be upset if you witheld that information.» So here it is.

Add to favourit  Web tip: Easy to the top
 

Trondheim calls itself the bycicle-capital of Norway because of CycloCable. This is a 130 meter long lift which carries bikers up the steep hill. The Poma Group, who developed the piece, is now on the hunt for other cities. And to be honest, I can think of one or two other streets where I wouldn’t mind a bit of help.
