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...

All art, on some level, must be autobiographical. If it doesn’t uniquely reflect the artist or their view of the world, then why should we care about it? Mental by UK performance artist The Vacuum Cleaner is an intensely personal piece about the artist’s own history of mental illness and activism. It is a brutally honest, powerful and often funny portrayal that will feel more like confession than performance. To add to the intimacy of the evening, Mental will take place in the bedroom of an apartment in town. Due to this, there are only a limited number of seats available and reservation will be required.
Thursday 8 pm, Friday 6 pm & 9 pm, Gasometerstrasse 45, 8005

Zurich will always be my first love but that doesn’t mean I can’t have a wandering eye for the satellite towns that make the extra effort to flirt with me. Over the coming week, Baden will be having what is, possibly, the first music festival of the year in Switzerland. The One Of A Million Music Festival has a line-up of 40 bands from across 13 countries that will be playing live in 3 intimate venues around town, as well as a scattering of smaller venue sites. The bands are all under-the-radar, which suits a boutique festival like this, but all have an indie melodic quality that will make a trip outside of Zurich’s city limits a treat. I have 1 x 2 tickets to give away for this Friday or Saturday. E-mail me, letting me know which day you’d like to go.
Friday to Saturday (7th Feb), Baden

I’m not sure who’s been keeping count but Supermarket will be celebrating its 6000th day anniversary this weekend. So you don’t need to calculate, that makes it nearly sixteen and a half years old, and as far as a club’s lifespan in Zurich goes, this makes Supermarket one of the wise old men of the night. To celebrate the occasion, many of the dj’s who have defined Supermarket’s sound over the years will be returning for a party that will start at 10 pm on Saturday and continue, non-stop, until 6 am on Monday. I think Supermarket just looked you straight in the eye and dared you to call it old!
Saturday 10pm to Monday 6 am, Supermarket
 
Add to favourit  Concert: Graceful expulsion
 
Some music defies genre descriptions. With Canadian band Cold Specks you might go with gothic-gospel, or even soul-punk but either way you’ll end up sounding like you’re trying too hard. The lead singer of the band, Al Spx, has a voice that would sound at home bouncing off the rafters of a gospel church, while her band makes music that swirls and bucks behind her like a dark stormy sea. Their debut album was called I Predict a Graceful Expulsion, and that’s probably the best description of their music you’ll find. They play at Rote Fabrik on Saturday.
Saturday 9 pm, Rote Fabrik
 
Add to favourit  Concert: Mali music
 
If the Blues had a birthplace it is now commonly thought to be in Mali’s soulful and moody stringed instrument tradition. Boubacar Traore has been a master of the Mali desert Blues since the early sixties but, like all good Blues-men it seems, his path wasn’t easy. From legendary status in his youth, he then spent twenty years out of the music business trying to make a living for his family. After being rediscovered in the late Eighties, he then moved to France to work as a labourer after his wife died, only to be rediscovered again years later as interest in ‘world music’ grew. Now, as an old man, he is again in his rightful place, recognised as one of the greats, playing music that both soothes and saddens the soul. He’ll be at Moods on Sunday.

Just as the name Little Brazil suggests, this restaurant serves great Brazilian food and is rather snug, in a good ‘we’re all in this together’ type of way. You can, of course, start things off with a caipirinha, just like mama used to make, if mama didn’t know when to stop pouring the cachaça. The menu has a great choice of food from the selection of small starters to mains that included Picanha and Moqueca (my favourite), and everything is looked after by the great women who both own and run the place, and make you feel welcome in their little corner of Brazil.
Little Brazil, Schmidgasse 6, 8001
 
Add to favourit  Good to know: Just justice
 

New year, new laws so it’s high time to fill you in on the latest changes of our justice system. Compared to other years, there are just a few and none of them drastic. But there is one modification that might become important to you, if you ever drive a car in Switzerland and if you don’t take the alcohol limit that seriously. If you cause an accident under the influence of alcohol, or because you fall asleep or consumed drugs (zero-tolerance) it will be seen as intentional negligence. Until 2014, your insurance company had the right to pass on all costs of the accident to you. But you were able to protect yourself from that with yet another insurance. Since the beginning of 2015, insurances must pass on all costs without exception. One more reason why it’s great to live in Zurich – you don’t need a car.

 
Add to favourit  Web tip: Where is Ron?
 

A while ago, I came across an old film-roll in my attic and decided to send it to «Rescued Film». Also, I wasn’t sure if the photo shops in town still develop films or if they’d just laugh in my face. «Rescued Film» is an online image archive, specialising on pictures between the 1930s and the 1990s. Amongst them you’ll find historic photos – for example from the Second World War - and personal snapshots. If you look very closely you might even find one of me, hanging out with my buddies looking extremely cool in our 1990s outfits. And no, it wasn’t a costume party.
