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

North and south

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.

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.

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

Beach style: Rimini may well be an Italian city on the Adriatic Sea, but it’s also a pool area in Zurich at the Schanzengraben. During the day the swimming area is for men only (there’s another one just for women at the Limmat near Bürkliplatz). In the evening it's open to the public and offers food and drinks in a beach-style environment, where you’ll feel like you're in the Mediterranean. 30 April sees the start of its ‘official’ season, but it’s actually open whenever it isn't raining.

Parks in town: Temperatures are rising, so it's time to stoke up the first BBQ of the season or simply bathe in the sun. Fortunately, Zurich’s got loads of parks (though many of them are a tad small) where you can lie on the grass and experience the joy of dolce fa niente. Bäckeranlage: This park, at Stauffacherstasse/Hohlstrasse, is the green lung of Kreis 4. With large trees for shade, sunny spots on the grass and a restaurant if you're hungry or thirsty, there’s also children’s playground and, if the grass is still wet, handy benches. Nobody minds if you bring a grill or a guitar along and, despite the crowd, you’ll generally find a quiet spot to read a book. Botanical Garden: The old botanical garden is located at Selnaustrasse and offers peace and quiet, plus space to relax, in blooming surroundings. Irchelpark: This park, near the tram stop Milchbuck, surrounds the university campus and extends over a main road. It's spacious (for Zurich) and is also a great spot for a barbeque with its very pretty lake – complete with fish and ducks. The more active among you might like the jogging track and tennis courts. Platzspitz: This green area next to the main station was once known as Switzerland’s “needle park”. However, nowadays you’ll find it’s a clean and pleasant spot, filled with trees and benches and an old band pavilion. Located right at the Limmat, it's a nice spot for lunch.

Historical feast: Zum Kropf is a classy restaurant in a stunning building with a menu that features a mix of traditional Zurich and Bavarian cuisine; all served in baroque surroundings. Although many restaurants in the city were built between 1880 and 1890, this is the only one whose original decor remains almost untouched.

Frozen moment: The action scenes in the last James Bond film were a bit too fast for me (I must be getting old!) If you felt the same way, check out this Carousel interactive film by Adam Berg, where a cops and robbers shootout sequence (with clowns, explosions, a decimated hospital, and plenty of broken glass and bullet casings) seems frozen in time. Viewers will be able to experience the feeling of walking through the action.
