Zurich (EN) : Thursday, 9.10.08: Future is now, bikes & bird's-eye view

 
 
Music festival
 
  Back to the future: is old news because the "Future is Now" - I love that name. As well as Zeughaus, Walcheturm and Zukunft, other venues feature a wide selection of current electro DJs highlighting the cultural and economic relevance of Zurich's club scene. Ron has 2 pairs of 3-day festival passes to give away.
Thursday, Friday, Saturday

Prelude
 
Look ma, no brakes: More than you ever wanted to know about bikes on display at the Bicycle Film Festival starting on 16 Oct at Grand Gallery. As a pre-launch to the festival, Stash and Futura 2000 (one of NYC's first graffiti sprayers) show off their artwork on Colnago bicycle frames and other bike gear. There'll be music, food and drinks.
Friday, 7 pm Grand Gallery
 
 
 
Party
 
  Goodbye: This is the last Forget Zurich party at Toni Molkerei, where we danced and drank and flirted - and which'll be torn down in 81 days and reopened as an art school. We'll miss it. All DJs - including the Ron Orp DJ team - will try to make this an unforgettable night. It'll be fun but a bit sad.
Saturday, 11 pm Toni Molkerei
 
 
 
Stand-up
 
Laugh? I nearly died: Phil Kay from Scotland and Stuart Goldsmith from England headline at Mascotte bringing wry British humour to the stage in the Funny Laundry season. A ticket includes discounted entry to the club after the show, so guffaw and then groove without greasing too many palms.
Saturday, 8 pm Mascotte
 
 
 
Film
 
  Something for the girls: Thelma and Louise - the road movie no woman I know ever seems to tire of. Does this have something to do with the powerful female characters or with Brad Pitt's young body? If you miss it this week, it's also showing on Thursday and Sunday next week.
Saturday, 11.30 pm Xenix

Midweek affair
 
Knowing me is knowing you, aha: Eskobar are back on tour after a year in the studio. Their sound is often compared to Britpop - only lighter - as they retain a sense of Swedish levity in their music. And, of course they also cover ABBA!
Wednesday, 8 pm Rohstofflager

  City view: sometimes, it's just nice to cast an eye over the city in which you live - so here are the best areas for a bird's-eye view. Polyterrasse: This classic - in front of the main building of the ETH - has been renovated but the perfect view remains the same. Jules Verne bar: Another classic - take the lift to the top, put a cocktail in your hand and drink-in the panoramic view. Grossmünster: The typical tourist trap and a lot of stairs to climb. Freitag-Tower: The nu-tourist spot. Only, the smell of plastic is a bit off-putting! Loorenkopf w ooden tower: It's 33 meters high, in the forest on the Adlisberg. Oerlikerturm: Rise up to 35 metres in the middle of the new Oerlikon district.
 
 
 
Web
 
  80s-videos: A nice way to pass time is watching old music videos on Youtube. A big thank you to all the eager users who upload every last clip and help us to rekindle our childhood memories. Here a page with a massive selection from the 80s.

Eating
 
Yes, I do leave Kreis 4 & 5 once in a while: La Stanza is a really nice bar at Bleicherweg, famous for its espresso and Italian aperitifs. Every Wednesday offers different appetizers so good that you'll imagine you're in Rome or Florence.

German, English, French with Johann : You just moved in Zurich or have already been leaving here for so long but still don`t speak good German. Probably, because it`s just a very difficult language.
