French fancy
 

When it comes to the alchemy of sexual charm, being French and female and a singer is a potent combination. My fevered teenage mind was forever replaying Vanessa Paradis’ sultry pout. Now direct from Paris is Lou Lesage, a 20-year-old singer who has taken the Parisian scene by storm with her rock-influenced songs. She plays live tonight at Restaurant Viadukt, and I’m suddenly in the mood for a garlic baguette. 
Thursday 9 pm, Restaurant Viadukt

The International Comedy Club usually likes to bring us comedy double bills from the UK and US but this week they’ve gone a little exotic. Jarred Christmas (that is his real name apparently) comes to us from New Zealand. He may look like Elvis’ younger, nerdier brother but the sheer force of his personality delivers the comedy at a non-stop pace. Also on the bill is Andrew Bird, from a green corner of the UK called Northamptonshire, whose comedy comes across with charm and is filled with reminiscences of childhood.

Find love, hear music
 

Love and music. Music and love. Are there two finer things in the whole wide world? And this weekend, your Uncle Ron may be able to help you find both at Stall 6. On Saturday, they hold their first ever speed dating evening. Love may be free but you’ll pay chf 20 to register. The after party is helmed by djs Coconut and Alain Ford. As you’ll be gazing into the eyes of your new love, making walking very difficult, why not hang around Stall 6 until Sunday afternoon when the Lauter Festival takes place. Lauter translates as louder in English, so you can imagine this festival will certainly rock. The line up is large and international including Ewert and The Two Dragons from Estonia, Steaming Satellites from Vienna, Labrador City from Bern and Zigitros from Zurich. If music be the food of love, you had better make your newfound loving loud.
Saturday 8:30 pm, Stall 6

Waiting for the revolution
 
Capitalism made us rich and healthy, but not happy. The resentment is taken out on the street; religion brings more conflicts than peace on earth. The speech series Waiting for the revolution analyses and looks for answers. How can we change society? Politics? Economy? As the third speaker in this series, charming Tom Hodgkinson talks (in English) about freedom, laziness and gardening. You can listen to the British author’s plea for afternoon naps and social alcohol consumption instead of shopping and protestant work ethics this Sunday at Schauspielhaus Pfauen. If you’re not convinced that this could be more entertaining than the usual Sunday evening film, the German newspaper Die Zeit called him “the Jamie Oliver of anti-capitalism”. Just as humorous but without the olive oil.
Sunday 8 pm, Pfauen

Good to know
 
It’s that time of the year again, where a part of Zurich’s male population plays Robin Hood – or at least men in tights. And where we get half a day off! The tradition dates back to the Middle Ages. The festivities start with the children's parade on Sunday but the highlight is on Monday when the guilds march through the centre. When the church bells start to ring at 6 pm (which is why it’s called Sechseläuten) it's time to burn the Böögg, a snowman effigy stuffed with wadding and firecrackers. The sooner its head explodes, the better the summer weather forecast. Afterwards you can grill a sausage on the still-hot coals of the Böögg’s pyre. The area by Bellevue will be very crowded but there are loads of stalls to get a bite to eat or a drink. Or join the infamous party at Mascotte.
Monday from 3 pm, city centre

Short and swede
 

Like short stories, short films can often be overlooked simply because of their length but I’ve always thought the skill needed to stuff big stories into small boxes a special kind of magic. In collaboration with the Swedish Embassy, Riff Raff are showing an evening of modern Swedish Short Films. Ten are being shown in total over the evening’s two and a half hours and each seems to show a different and engaging way of looking at the world. The events curators will also give an introduction to the evening and all films will have English subtitles.
Sunday 7:45 pm, Riff Raff

Zurich's burning
 

I always get a small thrill from watching a movie with Zurich featured somewhere in it. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Bourne Identity are a couple of examples but what I would really like is to see my own street, as well as the Ron HQ, having a staring role in one of those blockbuster disaster movies. Well, with the site 'chaos in your town' I can stop stalking Spielberg and make my own movie dreams come true. Unleash chaos

Christmas time is here again and just as Santa readies his reindeers, dons his red suit and packs his sack full of toys, I too will be avoiding real work over the next two weeks. The next newsletter you'll receive from me will be in 2015 but I've included some New Year’s parties in this one for those that will miss me.
Give my love to the city and a happy New Year to everyone, Ron

Christmas always brings out the romantic Ronster in me. After all, isn’t love the greatest gift of all? (or it would be, if it weren’t for this excellent blue Snuggie. Hint, hint Santa). Anyway, if you wander down to Stadthausquai, near Rathausbrücke, this evening you can take part in the Zürich Christmas tradition of Lichterschwimmen, where hundreds of people will be releasing little boats filled with candles into the Limmat. Hot punch and sweet treats will also be on hand as you gaze dreamily into the flickering river.
Thursday  5 pm – 7 pm, Stadthausquai, near Rathausbrücke

Add to favourit  Stage: Vaudeville vandals
 
The Tiger Lilies have the air of a vaudeville act that could have been performing in an old pub, on a dark and foggy London street, just as Jack the Ripper was having his dastardly way in the shadows. They mix music hall and vaudeville with a punk attitude and ghoulish humour that will make you laugh, while at the same time wondering if you should be laughing at all. Their new show, The Very Worst of The Tiger Lilies, is at Theater Rigiblick on Friday.
Friday 8 pm, Theater Rigiblick

If, despite the tinsel, the glittering lights and queuing up to buy presents, you still haven’t been fully embraced by the Christmas spirit, might Dr Ron recommend a shot of his finest, Grade A, pure-cut never-fails remedy. On Saturday and Sunday, Film Podium will be showing Frank Capra’s Christmas classic It’s A Wonderful Life. If you’ve never seen the film before then prepare to leave the cinema with your heart all aglow and a glisten in your eye. If you have seen it, then go renew your faith in your fellow man and repeat after me, “Attaboy, Clarence!”
Saturday 8.45 pm, Sunday 2.30 pm, Film Podium
 
Add to favourit  Concert: Winter legends
 
When the legends of El Dorado were first whispered, about that mysteries and lost city of gold in the Andes mountains, could they ever have thought that a bar in Zurich, coincidentally named Eldorado, would also contain a plethora of shiny riches and treasures, but would be infinitely more locatable. Probably not. Either way, the nearly unlimited number of beers (101, actually) they offer would be temptation enough for the meekest of explorers but this Sunday they are also hosting the Winter Unplugged Music Festival, where a nearly unlimited number of performers (5, actually) will be showcasing their acoustic skills from the haunting sounds of Me.Man.Machine to the poetic heartbreak of Faber.
Sunday 7 pm, Eldorado

Christmas always brings out the big softy in me, although that may also be the Glühwein working it's wily magic, so I was happy to see that Xenix are showing an open-air (yes, outside) double-bill on Christmas Eve (Wednesday). The first is the Buster Keaton classic silent comedy, The General, where our hero tries to get back the two loves of his life: his bride and his locomotive (not necessarily in that order). Blankets will be available but bring your own to guarantee one. The second movie is screened indoors: In «Barbarella» Jane Fond's sex-bomb tries to save the world, to do this she has to face some unique adventures first. First film starts at 6.30 pm, second at 9 pm.
