Faiz Kermani and Nicole Scoles of the Basel English Book Sale, hosted by the Basel West Library, were with us tonight to fill us in on the details of this year's benefit. The event, now in its fourth year, is sponsored by the GGG Stadtbibliothek Basel West, Basel Chidlren's Trust, Centrepoint Basel, and The Anglican Church Basel.
As enjoyable as gigs or festivals are, I would never rank them on par with a holiday in terms of the respite they offer from the daily grind. Or I wouldn’t have, until the Calexico concert at the Stimmen-Festival in Lörrach.
New to Basel?Wondering where to go and what to do? The English Show has had the (not very) arduous task of scoping out Basel's cultural life - and we've come up with a list of venues which feature live music (from classical to jazz to pop/rock) and club sounds - they're mentioned regularly in our Cultural Events calendar. We've also added some venues further afield - in Zurich, for example.
