It is backstory time again! I don’t care where people are going, and I know where they are, I want to know how they ended up here! It is easy to assume what brought the musicians to the SL music scene, but what about the fans? What dragged them away from the giltz and glamour of free sex beaches and the abundance of oddities that SL has to offer? How did they end up at After Dark shaking their pixels to the plethora of amazing artists that grace the stage? Making up stories can be a lot off fun, but it is easier to just ask them, and I did!
HOW METALGEAR666 GOT HERE!
“I was looking for an activity to do with a friend in 2nd life that didn’t include shopping and a DJ and Host. When the search took us to After dark Lounge, Funky Freddy and Oblee were playing together. They sounded cool and it was refreshing to hear live music with mellow but fun attitude. Im a big fan of the loop pedal they use.”
HOW REBECCA DEMBO GOT HERE!
“The first live event i went to in SL was when a friend of mine from a role sim invited me to tag along that night as the sim was dead. When i arrived the sim was so laggy and everything grey as there was a ton of people there. but the stream was working so i could hear the music. I was very impressed as i have never heard a live singer in sl before this time. Their set was ending but we had gone there to see Jordan Raynne. I fell in love with live music after that Jordan’s accent was a huge bonus for me. After that i began tagging along anytime i knew Jordan would be playing. I don’t recall the year i think it was in 2010 or 2011, nor do i remember the venue name just that was inside of dark building or something. after Jordan was done there was another singer following her they were good but i had already got hooked by the accent Jordan has.”
HOW ℰძ (edaaulder) GOT HERE!
“I’m not sure I think my first concert was Reggie Sunset at Reggies Road house. I was introudced to sl music by my good friend Gabbi ( Gabrielle Hamelin ) She brought me to a number of shows and showed me the ropes. I then broke off and found my own sec-in. so many singers.. so many venues a wide variey it all depends what mood im in. The second best thing about hearing great singers. is the awesome friendships made.”
Ed did not end there, he gave the nicest unsolicited plug for After Dark and since this is After Dark’s blog, I am posting it!
“My fav venue now is After Dark. The line ups are great. And the people are super. A good venue you feel at home.. here i feel at home. Meegan……and the others make After Dark Home for me..”
There seems to be no better note to end the post on than that!
