Exhibition: Four Wheels Bad, Two Wheels Good

 

There is a quote that has been doing the rounds about how a cyclist is a disaster for the economy. But, as you probably know, i love cycling for all the same reasons. So i am particularly excited as Cycle Week is starting today and will be taking place in several locations around the city over the weekend. Whether careering down mountain sides or meandering around the city it’s worth a visit as there is loads of really cool events happening.


And if taking it easy is more your style i have a great cycling book to give away. Scroll down to check it out.

Festival: Everybody Dance Now

 

But festivals are not restricted to cycling. This Friday is the start of the Zürich Tanzt Festival which will be continuing until Sunday the 29th of May. Celebrating dance and movement with local, national and international acts the festival is in its 9th year and has a really diverse selection of parties, performances and courses taking place all over the city.

Most importantly they are holding an open day at the dance studio «Zeot» on Sunday. The event is free so if you want to get involved check the following link.

Party: Dance Workshop

 

Speaking of dancing Hive are hosting another of their day dances at the SBB Werkstatt this Saturday. The event is in collaboration with Klaus and Rund and, as usual, has a bewildering number of DJ’s to keep you dancing until the sun goes down. And as the weather is going to be a clement 25 degrees, why not?

Party: Another Year In Idaplatz

 

One of my favourite bars in one of my favourite locations is celebrating it’s 12th birthday on Saturday. The location? Idaplatz. The bar? Le Calvados. But what is so special about this bar? Well its terrace, (on Idaplatz,) is such a wonderful place to spend a warm summer day that an afternoon drink often extends to the «letschti rundi». And this Saturday they have DJ’s, a grill with «Wiedikerli» and, of course, cold beer.

Stage: From The Tower To The Photobastei

 

If you’d like to check out some comedy then Saturday is your lucky day. Comedy Kiss is back and this Saturday UK comedian, Tom Houghton is taking to the stage at Photobastei. Tom is one of a select few people that can claim to have lived in the Tower of London but more importantly, Tom has been receiving glowing reviews in the UK press and was a big hit at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival as well as apperances on Comedy Central and Channel 4.

Concert: Dance While You Shoot

 

And just like last week, let’s finish with a gig. This Tuesday Israeli producer, singer and songwriter Noga Erez is hitting Mascotte as her only Swiss date of her European tour. In 2017 her song «Dance While You Shoot» was used as part of the promotion for Apple Music and she combines funk, pop and electronica with her hip-hop-esque, (is that a word? It is now!) delivery. Check out her, (very funky,) tune «Knockout» here.

Worth Reading: Zero Elevation

 

As it’s cycling week this week a bonus tip on the subject. Many people find downhill trails or riding mountain passes a bit daunting so author Katrin Gygax has come up with a book of 33 easy cycling day trips in her appropriately titled book, Flat Switzerland. The book is being released at Wheely Pop on Wednesday and I have a copy to give away to one lucky Ronster. Write me an e mail and let me know why you need this book in your life.


p.s. I really need this book too!

Good to know: Get Out And Vote

 

Referenda are as regular as the trains and this Sunday the Swiss go to the polls again with three national issues and a whole host of cantonal and city proposals to be ratified. As with the 2019 vote on gun control, Swiss membership of the Schengen area is at stake along with the future of national film making and, perhaps most importantly, organ donation. There is some important decisions for the city and canton as well with climate change taking centre stage. Click the buttons to read more.
