The Follow Exhibit at Esoterica

Details on the exhibit and a very special birthday party today at What's Up Soni.

Live on the Grid

I'm back chronicling the music scene after a major ordeal with some bad Internet service.  For now, let's start simple - I'm just passing along a couple of recommendations for singers and musicians to check out on the grid.   Belinda Barnes (below @ The Pocket) and I caught Sultry Sonata at Jade's Jazz Island last Saturday and OhMy and The Kidds last night.

Below are some photos from a couple of their regular gigs - Sultry Sonata at Jade's and OhMy at The Pocket.  

Here you can listen to Sultry (below) on YouTube:

OhMy and The Kidds put on a fantastic fun show at The Pocket to a full house last night.

Hope you have as much fun as Bel and I checking out live music in Second Life!

BOSL Features Duran Duran in its August Issue

I have been so busy lately, writing writing writing, everything but this BLOG.   I'm back after a short break with the RL music scene as it intersects with SL.   So.....

Best of SL Magazine's August Issue features the virtual story behind Duran Duran.  The article highlights the band's entrance into Second Life and the creation of the Duran Duran Universe.    The vision was very much that of DD's co-founder Nick Rhodes, who has been assisted by Community Manager Chrissy Welinder in-world.  I had the wonderful opportunity to interview both Nick and Chrissy.  Rumor has it that some of the members will be popping in this weekend for a bit of fun.  Stay tuned for more information.  Better yet, hop over to DDU.    Pick up the latest BOSL at a nearby kiosk in SL.   The issue is posted online too -
