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...

Who can forget the halcyon days of George W Bush as US President? If you’ve managed to convince yourself they didn’t happen, or successfully medicated yourself into believing it was all just one long psychotropic daydream, Xenix would like to remind you. As part of their Will Farrell season, tonight (appropriately enough on 11th September) they are showing Farrell’s one-man Broadway show, «You’re Welcome America – A Final Night with George W Bush», filmed in 2009 as Farrell performed his uncanny parody of the great leader for the final time. Entry will be free.

Nature may abhor a vacuum but Zurich abhors seven floors of empty space even more. As Photobastei closed its doors and packed away the photos at the end of August, the empty building was crying out for a meaning to its life. Well, this Saturday it’s found one. The last, great Photobastei rave. Seven floors of dj’s, music, bars and dancing. It may only be for one night but let’s give the old girl a send off she deserves.

What’s in my left trouser pocket? What three famous people am I thinking of? What colour is my underwear? If you can answer these three questions, there’s two possible explanations – one, you’ve been stalking me, and I want you to stop now, please, you’re scaring me or two, you’re Tobias Heinemann, the Zurich-based hypnotist, mentalist, magician and general reader of minds. He’s already appeared on his own show on Swiss TV and now, for the first time, is giving his first performance in English, Serendipity, at Plaza on Saturday. Now seriously, stop following me.

Corner College is a great collaboration of people that I've mentioned a few times when one of their events has caught my eye. On their Theory Tuesday evenings they have different people lead discussions about a specific text or film and on their Practical Friday nights have someone lead an instructional workshop. Past evenings have included subjects as wide ranging as «A Viking Way of Knitting», «The Perverts Guide to Cinema» and, «How to Land a Plane». They have their planning session for the Autumn season on Tuesday and are looking for people who would like to hold a session on a subject of their own choosing. Courses are mostly, but not exclusively, held in English.

After five albums, last years «Day of the Dog» saw them finally getting some time in the sunshine of popular acclaim, and with a live show that’s equally chaotic, cathartic and cool they may need to wear those rocking Ray-Bans a little longer.

Add to favourit  Good to know: Pieces of art
 

This week, my good to know concerns a tiny gem I stumbled upon by chance on Tuesday. Me and my two friends on our bikes. Abrupt stop by my friend in front of the retirement home Selnau at Schanzengraben.
Friend: Have you ever noticed the golden eye patches on these sculptures?
Ron: No, must be new!
Friend: The sculptures?
Ron: No, but the eye patches look new.
I’m glad we were overheard and interrupted. The sculptures «Lullaby» were placed around and within the retirement home in July and this Saturday there is a Vernissage with an open house. The intriguing pieces of art by Nicholas Micros are worth a visit themselves, but to be honest, I always fancied a look inside this house. After all, we’re not getting younger. If you don’t have time this weekend, you can also drop by during the week all day except during meal times.

Check out the program and if you’re like me, don’t forget to bring your big wallet along.

If puzzles or mystery are your thing, then you probably like this photo project. At the first glance, the images by Anelia Loubser seem like a series of some alien-like forms. But concentrate and at once your brain puts the pieces together and sees the human face. Which is just turned upside down.
