Memory of an icon: Unfortunately, I missed out on Tim Buckley playing live as he died - much too young - in 1975. But the local band Comebuckley brings back the charismatic songwriter and his melancholic sounds with a cross section from ballads to rock.

Electro-pop: Though Tim & Puma Mimi might look like they work in an independent bookshop, their sound is far from dusty. And I have to say, Seebad Enge is one of the nicest locations in town any day.

Slightly morbid: The funeral orchestra Dead Brothers - one of the most bizarre Swiss acts ever - split up in 2007, but now seem to have taken a turn for the immortal! Often compared to Tom Waits and Nick Cave they resurrected as Dead Brothers Sweet String Orchestra.

We're all gonna die: Redwood seems to have taken the title of their latest album to heart. The band is taking a break and may not get back together, so this might be your last chance to hear them play. In the meantime Lesley (vocals) and Mark Lim (guitar) have started independent projects.

Not Dutch but Danish: Vincent Van Go Go brighten up the dull fall days with their sparkly pop, soul and reggae'n'funk. It's urban, it's soulful, it's positive. The five boys from Copenhagen expect some hand clapping and a few uhs and ahs.
Monday, 8.45 pm Hafenkneipe

Pro active: Bar sport requires more exertion than getting your beer at the bar. Table soccer: This classic seems to prefer Kreis 4 and 5. Try Acapulco, a nice venue to meet new people, Sansibar, which is generally fairly busy or - an insider tip - Bar D'Höhli, where you should always find space. Darts: Most common in pubs in Kreis 1. Check out Bonnie Prince Pub, the smallest pub in Zurich, Nelson Pub, where you can compete with Australians or Six, one of the few bars in Niederdorf where most of the guests are locals. Billiards: Fans claim that this game is more than 2000 years old. Try Acapulco - next to the soccer table -, Schlauch which offers a large selection of billiard and snooker tables or Strauss, a bit deteriorated but a good place to meet interesting people.

Snoop Dogg: Sometimes he staggers through porn and film productions or presents rather manic TV shows. But mainly he is a stoned, style-setting rapper. Ron has 3x2 tickets for his show on September 16 in the Maag Eevent Hall to give away.

What better way to cure those January Blues this week than dreaming of the warm springtime and riding your brand-spanking new bike along the city streets to looks of jealous amazement. What’s that you say? You haven’t got a new...

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

 
Add to favourit  Web tip: Stolen moments
 

Lucas Levitans steals photos. Very officially. In his Instagram-project «Photo Invasion» the Brazilian artist creates new stories with existing pictures. The entertaining illustrations are fairly dark but mostly funny. If you like them, also click through «Stolen Pictures» and «The Invisible Bikes» on his page.
