It has been a little more than a week since After Dark made the move to Idle Rogue. Normally when one moves there is an adjustment period. It can take come time to get to know the new neighbors, get a feel for the area. There has been no adjustment period needed for this move. After Dark and Idle Rogue go together like peanut butter and jelly, peas and carrots, Thelma and Louise!
If you have not visited the new After Dark at Idle Rogue you need to! The music venue itself was made to look much like it had at Mai Tai. There have been some very cool additions though. Opposite the venue is a game room featuring Greedy, poker and Cards Against Humanity. Between the two buildings is a lovely courtyard where the one and only Cherryblondescribe hosts her After Dark DJ sessions on Monday nights at 10pm.
I could blather on and on about what a good time we have been having since the move, or I could just show you!
Vagueness be damned! It is time to let the world know that After Dark is moving! No longer will your favorite music venue be located at Rhi’s Poem on the Mai Tai sim.
The After Dark Lounge will be making the move to Idle Rogue, a beautiful sim that nurtures artistic expression, creativity and general bad-assery, and is home to Guerilla Burlesque and Arrehn Oberlander’s Metaharper Interactive Stages. For those who are not in the know, according to the Idle Rogue website The Metaharper Interactive Stages are a “‘push-button’ interactive experience. Professional dancers have taken some of their best-loved works and made them accessible to everyone.”
As many of you are aware, Guerilla Burlesque and Meegan Danitz go together like vodka and tonic. There are two things that Meegan loves most about life on the grid, the live music scene and Guerilla Burlesque. In her own words, “When I came to SL all I ever wanted to do was dance with people.” Thankfully, she discovered the music scene and fell in love with it as well!
“The more that I got to know Cherry over the last couple of years, the more I admired how she did things and realized we shared the same philosophies on running our venues. It is just a perfect fit.” -Meegan Danitz
This coming Sunday night will be After Dark’s last night on the Mai Tai sim and we are planning a little something special for the occasion! Wear your moving clothes and come “help us move”, we will provide the pizza and beer!
Thank you to Imrhien Fargis for the awesome group dance photos!
