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

I saw the sea-gulls heading south, a sign that winter is lurking around the corner. Time for me to take off and get some heat into my bones before the dark months begin. I’ll be gone for two weeks but don’t worry, I’ll be back!
Take care and give my love to the city, Ron

Today marks the start of the international literary festival «Zürich liest'14» (Reading Zurich). But I couldn’t find any events in English. Therefore ignore it and head to Rote Fabrik instead, where Bonaparte present their latest album. Instead of words, get a fill of music and you'll still stay in the literary world: their concert will transport you to «Alice in Wonderland». Techno tunes combined with costumes, everything is possible when circus director Jundt leads his band to the stage like his namesake monarch. The difference, they are not French, Switzerland is already a democracy and everyone attending is a winner. 
Thursday 8.30 pm, Rote Fabrik

«Switzerland‘s architecture is boring», was the title of an article in NZZ three years ago. It hit Zurich like a shot of a starter’s gun and became the cause to start a work exhibition with Swiss architects. This year «Architektur14» goes into its third round and shows more than 80 innovative architects. Let me know, if you still believe that this country’s architecture scene is boring after visiting the fair. Entry 18 francs
Friday to Sunday, 11 am to 10 pm, Maag Halle

Add to favourit  Eating: Little garden
 

Piccolo Giardino is not a new kid on the block. But I just realized again last weekend, what a great location it is. It’s situated perfectly for a drink or a bite to eat if your night’s plan includes Langstrasse. It’s just around the corner but devoid of the crude crowds. Instead it comes with an unpretentious atmosphere, a tasty menu and friendly staff. I like their covered beer garden where you can still sit outside, to keep warm, I suggest grog or a carajillo - and ask for a blanket. They show all games by FCZ live as well as the qualifying games for the European Cup that include the Swiss National Team. If you prefer music to sports, head there on the first Saturday of the month.
Piccolo Giardino, Schöneggplatz 9, 8004. Opening hours: Monday to Thursday 11 am - 0.30 am, Friday 11 am - 2.30 am, Saturday 2 pm - 2.30 am, Sunday 2 pm - 11.30 pm

 
Add to favourit  Good to know: Balboa Garage
 

You know that I like to discover hidden gems around town, away from the well-trodden paths. On one of my excursions I came across Balboa Garage, a gym that specialises in functional training. Balboa has three bases: I trained with Angel at Ghetto Gym just behind Kino Roland, was taught by Andrea at Amboss Rampe and I’m curious to see what their latest venue at Steinfels Areal will look like when it opens at the beginning of 2015. What makes Balboa special? The venues are located, where I usually go out, so it’s nice to do something healthy there for a change. Personally, I find gyms very soulless and avoid them at any cost, so the friendly and social atmosphere came as the biggest surprise. From the start I felt like I’m training with a group of friends. The schedule changes slightly each week, so you get a chance to try out various work-outs form Calisthenics and Planet Venus to Kettlebells to Cross Yoga. Subscriptions are 150 francs per month and you can join as many lessons as you like. If you fancy having a look at their Amboss Rampe venue, drop in tonight as they host the finissage of Paul Sieber's sculpture exhibition.

How do you see yourself? That’s the question photographer Scott Chasserot tried to answer with an experiment. First he took pictures of the participants. Second he created more than fifty versions of the original. Then he showed the versions to the participants and scanned their brain activities. In this way he found out which version perceived the most positive reaction. And this is what it looks like.
