Run rabbit run
 

Brooklyn has been the place from which a lot of bands have emerged over the last decade or so, all with an interesting take on indie-pop and now, sticking their little heads out of this same musical hole, are White Rabbits. Their music is built on a solid chassis of bass, (two!) drummers and guitar but the bodywork is pimped using synths and electronic slashes that keep things ever so slightly funky. I’d suggest following these White Rabbits down the rabbit hole and see where you end up. They play at Rote Fabrik tonight.
Thursday 8.30 pm, Rote Fabrik

This little piggy
 

In the early 70’s, criminally underrated artist Gordon Matta-Clark did something I’ve always felt a primal urge to do – roasted a whole pig on a spit in the middle of town. He cooked, filmed and served it under the Brooklyn Bridge and called the piece ‘Pig Roast’. This weekend Station21, a gallery specifically for young artists, have invited 2 artists from Bern to show at the gallery. Julius von Bismarck will be showing his new exhibition titled Punishments, which on Friday will also include a re-enactment of ‘Pig Roast’. Not only will you see the art but you can taste and munch on it too. On Saturday, Andreas Egli will examine and discuss the themes and issues raised by Julius’ work. 
Friday 2 pm & Saturday 11 am, Station21, Stationstrasse 21, 8003

Vintage sunshine
 

Weekends are made for mooching around markets and this weekend, with the summer sun making a much-promised appearance, is no exception. The Vintage Market at Rosengarten will have a great selection of vintage clothing and accessories for you to rummage through, and if finding a beautiful bargain, sunshine and being Saturday doesn’t make you whelp with puppy-like glee they will also be serving cupcakes as well.
Saturday 3 pm to 10 pm, Rosengarten, Kalkbreitestrasse 2, 8003

Planet pop
 

The Asteroids Galaxy Tour is a perfect name for this Danish band. Their music refuses to fit into any confined space or genre but rather travels to all reaches of the musical universe, all the while powered by a little space ship called pop. With so much going on in the music, it’s a miracle that lead singer Mette Lindberg can still sound so distinctive but with a voice you’ll either love or learn to, she clearly does. If you’re looking for something sticky and sweet on Monday night, they’re playing at Abart
Monday 8 pm, Abart

Workers of the world, relax
 

This Tuesday is the 1st May, which also being known as International Workers Day means, for most of us, we get to internationally stop working for a day. Apart from the rioting there isn’t much going on during the day in town. If you want to stay off the streets and enjoy an old fashioned UK themed Bank Holiday, the Big Ben Pub has a darts tournament going on but I’ve heard a rumour that the place to be in the afternoon is at Bäckeranlage. If you like to party and enjoy a surprise musical guest or two, get yourself down there.

Sweet Zurich
 

Berfe became a pastry chef at the French Culinary Institute in New York. Last fall she moved to Zurich and now creates customized cakes for any occasion under the name Baked by B. The pastries on the website look so I good, I want to taste them all. If you do too, don't forget that you need to order them in advance. But I assure you; it’s worth the wait.

Good to know
 

This Friday, South Africa celebrates its Freedom Day, the date of the first democratic elections (1994) in the country. There doesn't appear to be any offical celebrations going on in town. But if you'd like to celebrate the democratic spirit, book a table at Mama Africa, the South African restaurant in Zurich West or get a bottle of great South African wine for a party at home.

No Layout
 

I love independent magazines, as they don't have to answer to a large overhead and therefore try to take new paths. The text and designs reflect the passion and dedication of the founders. The website No Layout is a digital library for independent publishers, focusing on art books and fashion magazines. Great to browse through on a rainy afternoon.

Lists of note
 

I very rarely write lists; this may be one of the reasons why my cupboard is always bare and the things I have ‘to-do’ always need to ‘get-done’, but others are not so list shy. Listsofnote is a website dedicated to the lists of famous people. If you ever wondered what would be on Johnny Cash’s To-Do list (No.2 Kiss June, No.3 Don’t kiss anyone else) or Rudyard Kipling’s Rules for Life in London, add this site to your new ‘time-wasting’ list.

Add to favourit  Party: Smoke gets in your eyes
 
They’re calling it Zigiraum but I think this is just to lure and corrupt the youth of Zurich to follow the smoky, dark side. In reality Zigiraum is a free club night at Stall 6 that is half inside and half outside, allowing you to enjoy the decadent thrills of night clubbing under the decorative stars of night time (with the occasional puff if you’re so inclined). Friday is the opening night with indie rock djs Pat & der Zensor and Milieu Mauri. Other Zigiraum nights will include an eclectic mix of djs from electro to African only vinyl to rocknroll. Free entry.
Friday 5 pm (bar), 10 pm (club), Stall 6

Add to favourit  Party: Radio Z
 
To every thing there is a season. Although I'm pretty sure the writers of those words weren't referring to Zurich's summer nightlife when they wrote them, it applies beautifully to the annual 30-day sound blast that is Rundfunk.fm. Starting this Friday, as it has for the past 13 years, Rundfunk will take over the radio and Internet airwaves of Zurich, and the world. This year the one hundred dj's and music makers will be broadcasting live from Geroldstrasse, rather than its usual Landesmuseum home. In addition to the music, they’ll be drinks and food on offer, as this cool corner of Zurich becomes a broadcasting beacon to the world.
Friday until 15th August, Opening weekend only (this Fri/Sat) 5 pm to late, Saturday - Wednesday 5 pm to 12 am, Thursday/Friday 5 pm to 2 am, broadcasting live all day, everyday, Geroldstrasse 15
 
Add to favourit  Concert: Have guitar, will travel
 
Brett Newski is an American touring musician of the old school variety - through a simple twist of fate he found himself in Vietnam and, strapping his acoustic guitar to his back and riding a beat-up motorcycle, he toured throughout Asia playing rooftops, apartments, street corners or anywhere he could find a willing audience. He now pulls into Zurich at the Kiosk on Josefwiese to play his folk-punk tunes full of catchy melodies and cutting wit. If you like a little Bob Dylan or Jack White, or just want to spend a summer’s evening relaxing in a park listening to tales from another world – Brett’s for you.
Saturday 6 pm, Kiosk at Josefwiese
 
Add to favourit   Party: Living the lake life
 
This Saturday is actually going to be a sun-day, with blue skies and temperatures tickling the lower 30’s, and so it would seem that this weekend’s dance festival on the lake has pretty perfect timing. The Naturklang Festival at Ganz Yachting has four dance floors, both inside and out, and fantastic djs from across the world turning up. If you need a break from the dancing they also have food, drinks and smoothies on-site, parasols and cushions to relax and, of course, the lake is just a dive away.
Saturday 11 am until Sunday 10 pm, Ganz Yachting, Bellerivestrasse 264, 8008

For five Sunday’s during the summer the eleven housemates of the old ‘Alten Trotte’ house in Wipkingen transform their large garden into Kafi Duzis, a place where friends, family, locals and perhaps you, can enjoy a real community experience. With homemade food and cakes, a flea market, kids activities, a little live music, decorations and a group of people just looking for that sunny Sunday afternoon feeling, you might like it so much you’ll be asking if they have any spare rooms you could move into.
Sunday  3 pm until 9 pm, Alten Trotte, Nordstrasse 331, 8037
 
Add to favourit  Art: Past present
 
As well as being situated on a hill in the beautiful Rieterpark, the Museum Rietberg is the only art museum of non-European cultures in Switzerland. The question of how works of art from distant lands, cultures and time can still hold meaning to a 21st Century Western audience is addressed in the new exhibition Gastspiel. Twenty-one Swiss contemporary artists have each entered into a dialogue with pieces on show at the museum via site-specific installations, interventions in the park, performance, theatre, and literature in an attempt to extract new meaning from both the old and new.  
Sunday until 9th November, Closed Monday,10 am to 5 pm (Wed 8 pm), Museum Rietberg

Add to favourit  Good to know: Summer in the city
 
School holidays started this week and I can already tell that Zurich is emptier than usual. Which I like a lot. For all of you who like to enjoy the summer in the city, here's a little overview of what's going on over the next few weeks regarding open-air events. CINEMAXenix Open air , until 16 August: in the middle of Kreis 4, this year with almost exclusively German and Swiss German film. I have 1x2 tickets to give for the US Nascar-film Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (shown on Friday, 8.8.2014) from 2006. Just send me an emailFilmfluss , until 27 July: Enjoy films at the Limmat with German, French and English films, such as Now You See Me this Friday Killer Elite on Saturday. Ciné au Lac, until 17 August: The Orange Cinema sits on the right lake side, starting today with Fading Gigolo. CONCERTS:  Bäckeranlage, every Wednesday: Regional bands play unplugged - and if you don't like the sound, it's a nice place to be anyway. Oh See Festival, 17.-19. July: Rote Fabrik hosts several concerts right a t the lake ranging from indie to disco, rock and folk.  Zurich Openair: 28.-31. August: Within the almost endless line-up there is something for everyone, from The Editors to Bloody Beetroots (best live band ever!) and from Morcheeba to Manic Street Preachers. 
 
Add to favourit  DIY: What do you have in mind?
 
Next to the former  train station Letten  – yes, there used to be a train station at the river, today only the station house remains – there is a charming space, which has been creatively used as a parking lot. The cars were removed but the city council hasn’t decided yet what to do with this spot, so they are looking for ideas. You can post your suggestions for a temporary usage  here and I'll keep my fingers crossed. Keep me posted about your ideas.
 
Add to favourit  Web tip: From above
 
Do you know the definition of the beginning of the technological age? When «love is in the air» is replaced by «drone is in the air». Terrible jokes aside, the page Dronestagram  pictures Zurich and Switzerland from above in short film footage. However, as they show my beloved city and country, love remains in the air. Or at least a pun of some sort.
