Quantum jump
 

As it’s the long Easter weekend and we will all have extra time and chocolate on our hands, I thought I’d recommend an out-of-town event for a change, just in case you forgot that there exists a Switzerland beyond Oerlikon. The Electron Festival in Geneva will be drawing in friends, fans and creators of electronic music from all over the world during its 4-day schedule. In addition to numerous concerts and dj sets there are also exhibitions, conferences and courses teaching electronic music. My musical highlights: Brandt Brauer Frick, Mouse on Mars and Goldie. Geneva isn’t quite as cool as Zurich but for one Easter weekend only, we’ll give them their dues.
Thursday to Sunday, various times, various venues in Geneva

What’s behind the door?
 

Wydenstrasse 7 may just seem like any other ordinary address in Zurich but if you go there sometime over this weekend and ring the bell, the front door will be opened to you and what waits behind is a Pandora’s box of delights. On Thursday a dinner will be served accompanied by two French chanson singers (needs reservation), Friday and Saturday has some creative workshops, as well as a great sprinkling of live bands and djs. A bar is also open for all 3 nights. Saturday, in particular, looks like it’s going to be an all-nighter. 
Thursday to Saturday, various times, Wydenstrasse 7, 8004

Dancing with decadence
 

Who needs a time machine when you have Cabaret Voltaire? This Saturday they bring the roaring 20's back to life with a fully themed night of feather boas, divas and dandies. They have a couple of live bands to Charleston to, poker games and even silent movies. Entry fee includes champagne or absinthe to relieve the shock of time travel. They are also shooting their own film during the night, so be sure to dress the part.
Saturday 9 pm, Cabaret Voltaire

Bitter sweet
 

Dj Drop the Lime has risen to fame over the last few years as electro has fallen to the rise of dubstep, and he will be at Exil on Sunday during one of his rare visits to Europe. Known for his creatively wild dj sets that also include raucous singing and crazy dancing (by the dj, not just the crowd), this should be a Sunday night that makes you glad Monday morning is another day off.  Support comes from djs Malente, Riot School and The Backspin Boys.
Sunday 11 pm, Exil

Tomatoes for all
 
Maybe you’re planning to give your balcony or window sill a thought over Easter? Then have a look at Stadttomaten. Green, yellow, purple or white – tomatoes come in all colours and shapes. Pro Specie Rara supports the cultivation and protection of rare species by making ancient tomato seedlings available to everyone. All you need is some earth, sun, water and a seedling of your choice. Throughout April there are various places where you get such a seedling to harvest colourful and special tomatoes throughout the summer months. Bring some colour to Zurich.

Electro sound
 
The third release The Other Side by Berlin producer Robot Koch is calmer and more spherical than his last one. In 8 of the 13 songs on the solo album he gets supported vocally, amongst the guest artists you find singer/songwriter John Lamica. Robot shows his audience another kind of electronic music, one that invites you to relax and let your thoughts wander. Listen

Add to favourit  Exhibition: T-shirt T-ribute
 
Apart from walls for graffiti, the only other modern canvas that gives artists and designers the ability to have their art seen by the masses is the T-shirt. From its beginnings as a garment worn by workers in factories and mines to its current place as the item of choice for individual statement and protest, the humble T-shirt has had quiet a journey. The exhibition at Starkart, T-ribute, is a celebration of the T-shirt, and especially contemporary T-shirt graphics. It’s been organised by Amateur Magazine and will show 100 T-shirts from four decades selected by 10 European T-shirt aficionados (yes, such people exist). On Saturday they’ll have a T-shirt market for you to pick up your own designs.
Thursday to Sunday, various times, Starkart Gallery
 
Add to favourit  Party: Behind the scenes
 
As you wander the streets of Kreis 4 you may occasionally notice, through an alleyway or opening in the buildings, open courtyards hidden at the centre of the surrounding architecture. Unless you live in the apartments, these courtyards are normally inaccessible but this Friday, Zukunft are organising themselves a little HofFest. They will open up their own private space behind Bar3000 and fill it with live music from Teké Acoustic Sessions, grilled homemade sausages from the Lier family and a Filipino Food Corner. If the weather refuses to believe summer has gone, I don’t see why we shouldn’t too. Entry is free.
Friday 5 pm, Zukunft (behind Bar3000)
 
Add to favourit  Stage: Dj performance
 
Dj’s may think they’re something special and certainly when one of them plays a beat that gets this Ronster doing his slippery shuffle on the dance floor, i may agree, but to call it art was always a stretch. That’s until performance artist and dj Nic Lloyd put together his Don’t Judge show at Gessnerallee. His one-man, two-turntable show will see him using vinyl to mix and manipulate fragments of words, instructions, music and sounds to assemble new language structures that, he hopes, will influence the audience. You may feel your feet wanting to dance but your mind won’t be too far behind.
Saturday 9 pm (also on Sunday through Thursday), Gessnerallee
 
Add to favourit  Concert: Jazz wars
 
I think the saying goes something like, ‘caught between a rock and a jazz fan’. Now, i could be wrong but then it wouldn’t fit so well with this piece of writing, so I’m going with it. Over the weekend you’ll get a chance to hear some of Switzerland’s finest jazz musicians play some of the finest rock music in a cross-genre showdown at Hits Recycled in Moods. On Saturday it will be Pink Floyd vs. Black Sabbath, while on Sunday it will be The Police vs. U2. Each jazz band will compete against each other head-to-head, hit-for-hit, song-for-song in a battle for the loudest audience applause of the evening. Now, if only there was a phrase that could describe being at an evening like this…hmmm.
Saturday 8.30 pm and Sunday 7 pm, Moods
 
Add to favourit  Street: No cars go
 
Monday is International Car-Free Day, when many cities around the world encourage, or outright ban, drivers from using their cars. This allows pedestrians, public transport and cyclists to reclaim streets that are clean, quiet and safe, at least for one day a year. Strangely, given the number of bikes in the city, Zurich does not participate in Car-Free Day but given the Swiss view that ‘people-power’ can change most things eventually, there is an organised Velodemo taking place Monday evening. Starting at Bürkliplatz, hundreds of cyclists will set off for a tour of the city, and just by sheer numbers will reclaim any section of the city they happen to be passing through. The city cycle should last about an hour, returning to Bürkliplatz where a cycling fashion show and music will await you.
Monday 6.30 pm, Bürkliplatz
 
Add to favourit   Concert: French delusion
 
If there’s one thing the French know how to do well, outside of baguette baking, it is electro-pop. Issac Delusion hail from Paris and, despite the name to the contrary, are a band. The four members all seems to bring a diverse mix of sounds to the party with glimpses of Aphex Twin, Pink Floyd and Sufjan Stevens all somehow making their influences felt, but it is the singer’s soft, folky vocals that gently float over the electronic rhythms and melodies that elevate Issac Delusion to something special. They're playing at Bar Rossi on Tuesday evening.
Tuesday 8 pm, Bar Rossi

The last few days were full of sunshine but despite the golden rays, autumn is in the air. And autumn is followed by winter, which is fondue season!  However, Rimini doesn’t stick to seasonal labels and has already started with melted cheese dishes this week. From Thursday until 18th October, their open-air fondue parlour is open daily, even in bad weather. They're stocked up on blankets and Schnapps to keep you warm. 28 francs/person
18th September – 18th October, daily from 5.30 pm, Rimini

 
Add to favourit  Shopping tip: Just do it (yourself)
 

Finding the right present can be difficult: Too expensive, too small, too self-made. I love home-made presents but they shouldn’t look like a three-years-old's piece of work. Sueco is a great alternative. They offer DIY-sets which include all required materials. You just have to sew the leather pieces together according to their instruction. Like that, even beginners manage to create stylish simple bags, covers or wallets.

 
Add to favourit  Good to know: Back in the day
 

Whenever you wander around the Old Town you might think that time has stood still in the city. The stones have an air of eternity to them. But if you compare todays Zurich to the Zurich of 1793, many things have changed (and I’m not just talking about hygiene). For example, the lake came all the way down to Börsenstrasse and extensive gardens were situated between Talacker and Sihlporte. How do I know this? The official Geoportal put together the drawings by engineer Johannes Müller from 1793 with current street view images. A slide function lets you slip into the past and discover what the city was like back in the day. Just follow the link and click ok. 

 
Add to favourit  Web tip: Dali Dinners
 

Salvador Dali wasn’t just a painter, he was also involved in publishing a cook book. Top chefs as well as his wife Gala created the recipes while Dali was responsible for the illustrations. This oeuvre «Les Diners de Gala» is out of print, but thanks to the virtual world I found some images and recipes online at «Brain Pickings». Let me know how your dishes turn out.
