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.

A good meal comes with good wine. I often find unique characters at  Smith & Smith that stand out of the crowd. For example the wines that are named after our city patrons: «Felix» a charming red wine and «Regula» a discreet and easy-going white. To cure your January blues – or to maybe drown them – I have three sets with three red and three white wines each to give away. Just send me an e-mail.

Add to favourit  Concert: A star is born
 
It always gives me a warm fuzzy feeling to point you in the direction of a great band or show that’s coming to town but sometimes it’s the new, the unknown, the just plain amateur that can offer up unexpected delights. With this in mind, I wanted to let you know about the jam sessions and open mic nights that take place around town. Thursdays at Restaurant Falcone is the blues, rock and soul jam session. An ever-revolving cast of musicians that jump on stage and sound better than many rehearsed bands. On Mondays, Bar Rossi have their Spaced Out night where actors, writers and musicians get to star in their own one wo/man show. On Wednesdays at Plaza is The Open Mic Show where anything from drag-queens to poets get their chance in the spotlight. Also on Wednesdays is the Open Jam Session at Langstars. They provide the stage and equipment, and the musicians provide the jam. If you also want to perform, some require registration, others are just a leap-on-stage away.
Thursday 9 pm, Restaurant Falcone
Monday 8 pm, Bar Rossi
Wednesday 8 pm, Plaza and Langstars
 
Add to favourit  Game: Global gaming
 
Video games are fast becoming the dominant media experience for many people. Whether it's on a smart phone, social network and especially on a console, games now have bigger budgets, character development and emotional immersion than most movies, books or music. The GlobalGame Jam, taking place at  Rote Fabrik this weekend, sees thousands of people and locations connected around the world as they come together in small teams to design and build new games within 48 hours. This isn't only for the computer programming nerds among us, as aspects of design, music, story telling and just good old creativity will all be required. The Game Jam's doors are open to all, whether you take part or not, and you can join any team whose ideas interest you, although expect a pretty sleepless 48 hours. Registration is required.
Friday 5 pm to Sunday, Rote Fabrik, Dock 18
 
Add to favourit  Party: Start to Finnish
 
What with all of this extra cold weather we’ve been having lately, it seems silly not to go all the way and import a little bit of Finland into our midst, and what better way to celebrate a nation that likes to get hot and steamy in small rooms than the Suomi Disko at Exil. Resident djs Kersantti Kankkunen and Pikku E will be playing Finnish music from traditional polka and pop to Finnish hip-hop and the lesser-known Nordic reggae. As well as the dj set, Finnish troubadour Hullu-Jussi will be on hand to play live. This will all be topped off with servings of Finnish beer and food. Kippis, my Finnish, and soon-to-be Finnish, friends.
Friday 11 pm, Exil
 
Add to favourit  Concert: Swedish sounds
 
Despite the fact that Vita Bergen record their music in one of this Swedish duo’s bedroom, it sounds as if it were made to be played from a mountaintop, just as the sun rises over an unsuspecting world. They have the emotional urgency of the early Arcade Fire records, and have been bubbling up in the Swedish underground for a couple of years now. Their debut EP was recently released after a music industry rush to sign them and they’ll be playing at Rote Fabrik on Friday.
Friday 9 pm, Rote Fabrik
 
Add to favourit  Stage: Go west
 
In a dusty corner of YouTube lies a short, unassuming home video of a long forgotten family karaoke party. The Gob Squad, a joint German/UK performance group, sees this unspectacular starting point as a way to explore the state of Western civilisation in the 21st Century. Recreating the scene with live camera projections, music, props and a little help from randomly selected audience members (watch out for flying cuddly toys) they unravel what may seem mundane into a glitzy, glam, funny critique of our society. Western Society will be playing at Gessnerallee on Saturday and Sunday.
Saturday 9 pm, Sunday 6 pm, Gessnerallee
 
Add to favourit   Sport: Born to run
 
There’s either a sneaky mass evacuation happening in town, with lycra being the only clothing people have the ability to take with them or a lot more people have started to jog in the New Year. Let’s assume it’s the latter and, as crazy as this may sound, let’s assume you’re one of them. If you need a little group motivation to get you going, or just like to breathe heavily with strangers outside, you might want to try City Running. Throughout the week, and with specials on Sunday, you can meet up at various fixed locations to join others on routes around town.
Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday 7 pm, various locations

Add to favourit  Drinking: A room full of life
 

It felt like an embrace of a good friend when I walked into Wohnzimmerbar last Friday. The locale was filled with laughter, good music, cosy sofas and a well-stocked bar, just the right place to settle down for a nightcap. Or two. From the bar you see straight into the tram depot, which gives an urban edge to the living-room-atmosphere. As it is with good friends, time just flies, and at once the depot lies in the dark and you realize that your night cap turned into (another) late night.
Wohnzimmerbar, Kalkbreitestrasse 10, 8003. Opening hours: Monday to Thursday 5 pm to 1 am, Friday and Saturday 4 pm to 2.30 am, Sunday 1 pm to 0.30 am (with concerts)

 
Add to favourit  Good to know: Curling
 

I loved the winter wonderland we experienced over New Year. Unfortunately, snow is a feeble friend that already left us and maybe never returns. To find winter spirit, you have two options. A: Head to the mountains. B: Try curling. Dolder is known to have the prettiest ice rink in town and it also sports a curling hall. They offer a basic course (next one starting from Monday, 26th January for 200 francs per person) as well as individual try outs with max five people. To complete your day out, combine it with brunch, lunch or dinner at Dolder or head to the ice rink where a lot of Glühwein awaits you. The ice rink is currently under repair, but reopens on Tuesday.

 
Add to favourit  Shopping tip: From gold to dust
 

Between beautiful vintage furniture there are unique pieces of art to be discovered at the pop up shop Rost & Gold. Amongst them are photos, paintings, illustrations and hand-crafted goods by Saskia Widmer and Janet Müller. This treasure hunt will close its doors this Saturday (which is the destiny of every pop up shop). But I have two vouchers to give away for 100 francs to spend there, before they’re gone. Just send me an e-mail.
Rost& Gold Talstrasse 37, 8001. Opening hours: Thursday & Friday 11.30 am to 6.30 pm, Saturday 11 am to 6 pm
