Versus Festival 2018 32 Hours Non-Stop Live Music

First of all I was amazed that I didn't recall having been to this venue before, because it's great and I'd have thought I'd have visited at some point since it's been open for 2 years the owner, Carl Wardark, told me.  But then I found several landmarks in my inventory and a few objects.. so maybe I have, and it's changed some or something.  Anyway.. it's a GREAT looking venue.  There are indoor and outdoor staging areas and a cool looking area to explore around the sim.  I took a few pics so you get an idea about it. Anyway .. they are having a huge event this weekend you won't want to miss.

Justin Ashton at Jagged Edge

Tonight was my first experience hearing Justin Ashton (Justindarkside) sing in SL.  Just wow.!  He played piano and sang a string of ballads and was a huge crowd pleaser. His musical talent is clear and he sounded amazing.  He came highly recommended by Toxie Darkmatter another great singer in SL and she wasn't kidding .. this guy is great.  Be sure to check him out when you get a chance. Well worth seeking out.  If you hurry you might still be able to catch a bit of his set tonight. He's currently doing a medley of Queen songs.  Nailed them all!  Serious talent here.

Justin Ashton

His profile indicates he's just a couple of months into SL but that's just since he's come back to SL  this time. He has a bit of a sexy Scottish accent when he speaks : )

His profile states: "Justin is a singer/songwriter from the south west coast of Scotland.  An accomplished performer in RL over the past 30+ years, and SL over the past 7 years, Justin's Piano and Acoustic Guitar sets are a spirited blend of Classic Rock & Pop, Folk and Ballads. Bookings: Please contact Justin directly"

Jagged Edge is a live music venue for anyone looking to enjoy a relaxing setting with great music owned by Keileigh and Jorr Jarrman, owners of Whispering Sands Live Music.  They host many musicians and great live music shows.  Check it out here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Sunset%20Cove/128/128/12

...and a happy new year!





...and a happy new year!

Happy New Year to all of Second Life.  After all these years and hours together SL has become a part of my first life. This past year I went to my first SL music jam, meeting many SL residence in person. This somewhat restored a little faith in the reality of people. Sometimes it's hard to remember that everyone enjoys SL in their own ways, weather that be "role play", real, or pretending to play real but in a reality they've created that doesn't match their first life.  I enjoyed new bento mesh heads and various enhanced newness this year, I've met a lot of new friends, but also lost some special ones in their pursuit of more time and  a higher quality first life. I'd like to greatly thank Linden Labs and Second Life for making this amazing place where the only true limitation is the imagination. And I'd like to thank all the content creators, musicians, artists, venue owners, people who promote, social people to play with and everyone I've come across. Not 100% of my time has been the best, but I've learned something from even the disappointing experiences. The good outweighs the frustrations by far. Here's to wishing everyone a fantastic and adventurous 2018!
