The press release read,
"The Village, Second Life's newest hot spot, will be having The Official Launch on Friday April 29th at 1PM SLT. Owned by Mankind Tracer and Kalli Birman, The Village is modeled after Greenwich Village, NYC of the 1970's and will be home to some of the best couture boutiques Second Life has to offer including House of RFyre, Gizza, Paris Metro, Tres Beau, Bliss Couture, Vogue, Blacklace, Mary Jane Shoes.
The Village is also home to the new underground rock venue, "Club Graffiti". It is inspired by one of the most famous clubs in Greenwich Village, CBGB's and the area where the whole punk movement of the 1970's began. Artists such as David Bowie, The Ramones, Blondie, The Talking Heads and many others made their way through CBGB's to begin a new revolution in music.

I was home from work Friday and actually was able to attend the opening at Graffiti with The Follow and Mankind. They had 96 people at peak during the launch events and are now featured in SL's Destination Guide. The area is adorable with great shopping and a central fountain. I went back for the SLurl and Mankind was there so when I inquired as to who the owner is, he advised he and Kalli Birman are owners. I really like the ambiance of Graffiti with the walls lined with graffiti and posters, funky bathrooms and a large stage area with plenty of standing and casual sitting room for all. This is going to be a rocking venue, so be sure to check it out.
