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

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.
