Second Life and First Life collided in the best possible way last weekend when Meegan and I attended the MidAtlantic Jam in Dulles, Va! To say that it was a good time does not even begin to do the trip justice.
It was *almost* like being at After Dark Lounge. Musicians on the stage, us in the crowd, heads bobbing and butts wiggling. (I would like to state for the record, that unlike in Second Life, when you tap Meegan’s butt in First Life it does not animate you!) It is easy to see how people can get addicted to attending these events. We are incredibly spoiled by unbelievable talent in SL and to have a few day of that in First Life is something that just cannot be fully explained!
Among the artists that played at the MidAtlantic Jam were After Dark Lounge regulars Voodoo Shilton, Maximillion Kleene. and Ren and Quai. Ren and Quai carried the music late into the night in the hospitality suite. Max played a great set with the Quadradix , minus one. Voodoo sat in with several other musicians and held a very informative clinic on how he makes his music, Seeing the looping done in real time was close to mind blowing, especially for someone who can barely walk and chew gum! The Follow played a low key acoustic set the first night and then rocked us thoroughly the second!
Through all of the excitement I did manage to snap a few pics of the happenings of the weekend. All photos are used with the permission of those who were photographed.
