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

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.
Tuesday 7 pm, Museum für Gestaltung (opening)

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: Lakeside lethargy
This weekend is full of celebrations and parades of one sort or another, and spanning the entire time from Thursday to Sunday is Lethargy at Rote Fabrik. Often billed as the alternative alternative to the Street Parade, they make sure they cram as many live bands, djs and performance pieces into four days and nights that the name Lethargy seems to mock the very idea of the English language. As a refuge from, and an extension of, the Street Parade, Sunday will be an open air and free affair.
Thursday 8 pm, Friday 9.30 pm–6 am, Saturday 9.30 pm-7 am, Sunday 1 pm, Rote Fabrik
Add to favourit  Party: Swiss national day
That holiday you’ve been given on Friday isn’t just because you’ve been extra diligent at work, although we all know that’s true but is, of course, to celebrate Swiss National Day. Now, if you really want to get your Swiss game-face on, you could maybe eat brunch at one of the farms in the Zurich area, go see the celebrations on Rütli Meadow, where the original three-Canton Swiss alliance was agreed or even ride a cow on a cow-trekking day.

If you’d prefer to dial it back a little and just enjoy a party or two in town, then you could try the Wunderbar Openair in the garden of the Kreis 5 Quartierhaus. In the afternoon they’ll have a children’s programme, then as the evening progresses bands and dj’s with an African and Latin American flavour will play. You can bring along you own food to grill or try some of the African specialties on offer.

At Bäckeranlage, the Äms Fäascht is promoting itself as the Multicultural Alternative to 1st August. Bands, singers and even comedians who reflect the international diversity of Zurich will be playing. You’ll also be able to sample food from around the world.
Friday 3 pm Wunderbar Openair, Kreis 5 Quartierhaus, 2 pm, Äms Fäascht, Bäckeranlage
Add to favourit  Party: Backstreet parade
If you’re anywhere within the city centre limits on Saturday, the Street Parade is going to be unavoidable, and if you’re looking to have a good time, you certainly won’t need me to point you in the right direction – just pull up your lycra thong and look around you. If, however, you’re looking for something off the beaten track, well, you’ve come to the right man.

Far from the madding crown, perched up on Uetliberg, is Im Sonnenbühl, who are offering a Summer of Love lounge party. With live music and dj’s, bar, food and pool. Tickets are limited.

Zukunft will be having their own block party on Dienerstrasse during the early evening, as dj David August fly’s in from Berlin to show why he’s considered a star in the clubbing world. He’ll be supported by label mates and Zurich dj duo Adriatique, among others.

If you head out to Zurich West and climb up to the rooftop of the Bananen Reiferei, you’ll be in the company of a fine selection of dj’s as they party inside the club, outside on the terrace and await the sunrise on Sunday morning.

At Supermarket, you’ll have the chance to party at their daytime party, so even if the weather isn’t stellar, you’ll still have somewhere to dance yourself dizzy.
Saturday from 12 pm - Im Sonnenbühl, from 5 pm - Zukunft, from 6 pm - Bananen Reiferei, from 12 pm - Supermarket
Add to favourit  Party: Better late than never

If you're looking for venues to extend your parade pleasures, here are some suggestions: Wirtschaft zum Transit: offers an escape from the electro beats with concerts by Blind Butchers (country disco punk) and The Guests (punk rock). Afterwards Dj Spiegel Guyau sets the gems of music history to his own beats and makes you dream and dance until the sun is out. From 10 pm until the morning.  Alte Kaserne: comes with a massive line up with Oliver Koletzki, Sascha Braemer & Niconé, Lexy & K-Paul, Kellerkind. From 9 pm to 10 am. Frieda’s Büxe: in the words of «The Dritte Raum is playing. That’s all you need to know.» But I’m also a big fan of Bang Goes and Manuell, who are part of the line-up too. From 10 pm until the morning. Photobastei: gathers various local djs and suprises with a hidden cosmic disco floor. You need a flyer to get in – which you get prior to the event at the venue itself. From 10 pm to 8 am.

Add to favourit  Wulffmorgenthaler
Add to favourit  Good to know: Light in the sky

I’m sure you also look forward to the long weekend that lies ahead of us. On Friday we celebrate our national day, but this year, there is no official firework-show, so you might want to get your own gear. Shops like Coop and Migros have fireworks in stock now. The law regulates that they’re not allowed to sell them until a few days prior. A great alternative is Atelier Bucher at Birmensdorferstrasse 257. It’s fully dedicated to sparkles in the sky and sells everything from smallest crackers to largest rockets. Just be aware that it’s actually forbidden to light fireworks except for the first of August.

Add to favourit   Eating: B like Bosporus

With five meter high rooms, Café Bebek has a true metropolitan feel, especially when you glimpse the trams through the largest window. The latest addition to the Kalkbreite complex opened its doors at the beginning of the month. It’s the sister of Maison Blunt at Kreis 5, which is visible when looking at the menu. The dominating theme is oriental food, which makes sense, when you name your venue after a trendy district on the Bosporus.
Café Bebek, Badenerstrasse 171, Zürich

Add to favourit  Shopping tip: Bye Bye Kalk

Temporärkalk closes its doors this Thursday. They will re-open the pop up store in a new location in September. But until then it’s goodbye for now. On their last evening they offer 30-70 percent discount as well as drinks.
Thursday 6 pm, Temporärkalk
