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.

In what can only be described as a cross-cultural collision, a French electronic/indie music label with the Japanese name of Kitsuné, meaning fox, will be hosting three UK bands as they perform dj sets at Plaza. Foals, Friendly Fires and Citizens have pretty much established themselves over the last few years as indie bands who have been deeply influenced by club culture and so it should be interesting to hear what they’ve got in store for us on Friday night.
Friday 11 pm, Plaza
 
Add to favourit  Concert: Rhythm king
 
If you’ve heard Fela Kuti or Afrobeat music before you’ll know that, as Gloria Estefan so eloquently put it, the rhythm is gonna get ya. And if you’re wondering where that rhythm originated, you need look no further than Tony Allen. He’s been described as the greatest drummer who has ever lived, and been involved with musicians and music from every kind of genre, with his most recent album being a collaboration with English musician Damon Albarn of Gorillaz and Blur fame. He’ll be playing with his band at Moods on Saturday night.
Saturday 8.30 pm, Moods
 
Add to favourit  Concert: Young, gifted and back
 
There is something almost primeval about rock’n’roll’s cyclical desire to give birth to bands of young men who want to bash the drums and thrash their guitars in a melodic fashion. The latest incarnation of this eternal trend are Taymir, a band from the Netherlands who are made up of 16 to 22 year olds, and have recently won the ‘Sound of 2014’ back home. Their music has a 60’s jangle about it, melodies that will stick to you like glue and they’re all as bright as shiny new buttons. What’s not to like? They’ll be playing live at Hafenkneipe on Monday night.
Monday 8 pm, Hafenkneipe

Last weekend, Sommergarten at Kanzlei held their final dinner for this summer. And as it’s officially autumn now, the team returns to their harbour at Elisaburg at Zweierstrasse (just behind Bahnhof Wiedikon). Though the venue may not seem like much from the outside, dare to step inside. There a cosy interior awaits you, including friendly staff and great Mediterranean cuisine: Always fresh and always good. If you can’t make up your mind what you should order, check with your waiter, they always offer good tips and the chef is always happy to fulfil special wishes.

Add to favourit  Good to know: Love is never illegal
 

And the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film goes to… Switzerland’s «The Circle»! Well, that’s just a fantasy so far, but the film (in German «Der Kreis») is nominated. I went to see it last Sunday at the new cinema Houdini and was enthralled. It’s a mixture of documentary and feature film, set in 1956, when Zurich was perceived as a pioneer in gay emancipation in the whole of Europe. It’s a moving piece about two men who fall in love while the repression against homosexuals become increasingly intense. I was never aware that Zurich played such a key role in Europe’s gay movement. Well, my tips are usually suggestions but it would be a shame if you missed this gem of Zurich’s cinematic talent. Especially as the film comes with English subtitles.

 
Add to favourit   Shopping tip: Made to last
 

After more than one year filled with labour, the refurbishing of the Fabrikat shop finally finished and it's time for the opening. The venue is filled with unique hand-made, timeless objects to touch, admire and buy such as sketch books or pens. The bazar-like shop looks like it stranded here from a Jules-Verne-book: bizarre, fantastic, archaic, beautiful and brand new. The opening is today from 6 pm.
Fabrikat, Militärstrasse 76, 8004

 
Add to favourit  Web tip: Every noise at once
 
If you’ve ever been in a conversation with someone about the music they like and they say something like, ‘I really like skweee but I’m more into shimmer pop this week’. You may feel a little out of your depth, musically speaking. You may also want to wrap your hands around their throat for being so pretentious. To solve the first issue, dear Ronster, check out this website – Every Noise At Once – that lists every possible genre of music, 1200 at the last count. Click on a genre and you'll see bands associated with it plus hear samples of the music. To solve the hand and throat issue, I have no real cure, although try listening to some shimmer pop. It may relax you a little.
