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  Concert: City in the summer
 
If the idea of venturing into a hot, dark gig to get your musical fix doesn’t appeal to you as summer shines on outside, then Stadtsommer is here to save the day, or rather your evening. Six bands, with styles ranging from folk to electronica, will be playing live over the next couple of weekends in cool outdoor locations around town, and all are free. Tonight, experimental rock band Gletscher plays outside Helsinki. I'm also looking forward to seeing musical futurist Bruno Spoerri and Crew play in the courtyard of Restaurant Riethalle and the folk of Mantel & Kantelinen at Platzspitz
Thursday 9 pm, Gletscher, outside Helsinki, Thur - Sat (24th-26th Jul & 31st Jul-1st Aug), various times & locations
 
Add to favourit  Eating: Table tour
 
The Tour de France will be finishing this Sunday, and while riding 200km a day, often up and down mountains, clad in lycra is clearly some people’s idea of fun, I much prefer the Tour de France that Kulturmarkt are offering. This Friday you can take a culinary tour of various regions of France, with the chance to eat Forest Snails, Bouillabaisse, Coq au Bordeaux and Tarte Tatin. The only question will be, do you exert yourself with a bike ride to the French feast or take the tram. Either way, lycra will be optional. To reserve, you can email restaurant@kulturmarkt.ch or call 044 454 1015.
Friday 6.30pm, Kulturmarkt, CHF 35 per person
 
Add to favourit  Party: Alt dj
 
A couple of years ago alt-J released their debut album, An Awesome Wave, which was full of folky electronica, dubstep rhythms, vocal harmonies and tunes that could get a festival field singing along. With their new album due for release soon, they’ve been invited to dj at the Mad Katz Sommerparty in Exil on Saturday night. If the mix of influences shown by the music they make is anything to go by (their new single samples Miley Cyrus), this should be an evening full of surprises.
Saturday 11 pm, Exil
 
Add to favourit  Exhibition: Battle cry
 
During the Bosnian War, Sarajevo became a city under siege. In fact, the assault lasted from April 1992 until February 1996, the longest on any capital city in modern warfare. And yet despite the horrors taking place on the streets, below ground in the cellars and underground bars a resistance of sorts was taking place as bands and artists performed. In the exhibition called Rock ‘n’ War in Sarajevo - Rock gigs under the siege of Sarajevo at Photobastei, photographer Milomir Kovacevic Strasni will show his photos of this chaotic scene for the first time and be on site to discuss his experiences. The evening will finish with music from Balkanekspress.
Saturday 7 pm, Photobastei
 
Add to favourit  Concert: California dreaming
 
If you could capture, in sound, the feeling of cruising along a deserted Californian highway in a white open-top Cadillac as the warm breeze blows back your hair and the sun glints off your Ray-Bans, then it would be something like listening to a Jonathan Wilson album. He’ll be bringing his soulful folk-rock grooving to Bogen F on Tuesday. If you end up running away from home to become a ‘child of the sun’ after the concert, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Tuesday 9 pm, Bogen F

Add to favourit  Eating: As hot as it gets

I love getting restaurant tips from you. Let’s see if you also get tempted: «At Thai Sun Garden you find the hostess herself in the kitchen, preparing a large selection of authentic, wonderful dishes at a reasonable price. The duck is tender, the veggies crunchy and the curry as hot as you like it. Every time it feels like visiting a neighbourly Thai couple for dinner. It’s a bit hidden but that adds even more to its charm.» You’ll find the venue right next to tram stop Tierspital (tram 7 or 9) exit Berninastrasse/ Winterthurerstrasse). Best to call ahead to make sure the restaurant is open.
Thai Sun Garden, Winterthurerstrasse 281, 8057 Zürich, 043 538 71 37

 
Add to favourit   Good to know: 24/7 music
 

For the fifth time, the LoRa dj marathon takes place right before Streetparade. What's new: The quirky city radio leaves its home and wanders to various locations. The music will be as diverse as ever and also the locations couldn’t vary more: ABS, Hive, Gonzo, Daniel H., Helsinki, Blaues Haus, Klubi, Palestine Grill, Kern Bar, Nordbrücke, Zitrone, Stall 6 and of course Boschbar. It’s worth to catch a beat, even better, stop by. You’ll find the programme here.
Tonight from 10 pm at Blaues Haus until 4th August at various locations
24/7 on 97.5 MHz and www.lora.ch

 
Add to favourit  Shopping tip: New design
 

Where there used to be a hat maker, a gallery and a piano store, the two sisters Jessica and Josie found new home for their label Kinsfolk. They use the beautiful location as a showroom and workshop for their jewellery and scarf collection. So far, they don’t have fixed opening hours but during regular working hours you’ll certainly find someone there who is happy that you came.
Kinsfolk Studio, Dubsstrasse 26, 8003 Zürich

 
Add to favourit   Shopping tip: More than honey
 

Do you know Wabe 3? They sell tasty honey collected from the rooftops of Zurich. And on my Roof Terrace Day they offered guided tours to various hives. Together with Madame Pompon they recently opened a small shop called Honig Kuchen. Here you'll find, next to their own products, various British and American baking items and stylish accessories for your teatime. Like a brunch-set that comes with honey, candles, flour, cutting board and a honey spoon.
Honig Kuchen, Birmensdorferstrasse 109, Opening hours: Tuesday to Friday 11 am to 6 om, Saturday 10 am to 4 pm
