The London City Dungeons - Now Open!

The London City Dungeon is our exhibit for Halloween.

Nine underground chambers for you to explore!

The London Dungeon is a popular London tourist attraction, recreating various gory and macabre historical events in a grimly comedic 'gallows humour' style, attempting to make them appealing for family audiences. The dungeons date back to the 1500's and were opened as an attraction in 1974.

Explore them for the first time in Second Life.

Weekend in Review - 23-25 September

Another weekend of craziness in London City.  It began at Madame Lala's London Revue following a Best in Leather party at Bar Soho.  The incomparable Ruby Babylon gave a tribute to Dolly Parton that was a hit with the crowd that assembled.  No one could take their eyes off Ruby's dress; in much the same way that people can't take their eyes off a terrible accident.

The crowd look on anxiously as fireworks are unleashed so close to so much hairspray...

So much 'talent' that even the microphone didn't know where to put itself
The Saturday Party in the Park witnessed the return of a tribute to Swedish sensations ABBA.  Party goers descended on to Regent's Park en masse, with numbers on the sim peaking in the nineties for the concert and Best in Flares contest

Revellers frolic on the dance floor as ABBA perform a selection of their hits.
On Sunday night the action moved to Comptons pub for Open Mic night.  The usually rowdy audience became unusually reticent at the thought of performing.  Thankfully, Brian Narstrom was on hand, well on mic and guitar actually to provide some entertainment.

As well as Brian, we also had an impromptu visit from Lehman Shinn, who made his debut on Comptons stage and was well received by the audience.

London City's own Madame Lala stormed the stage for a tribute to Dame Edna Everage, but thankfully Brian returned for an encore performance to round the evening off in style.

Weekend in Review - 16-18 September

Wow...that was such a great weekend in London City that I am a day late with my posting - the Soho beer has just worn off...

As always our weekend started with a warm up at Bar Soho and then we headed on over to Madame Lala's London Revue for a live concert by BG Singer.  He has a good rapport with the audience and an impressive song selection that kept us all entertained.

BG Singer at Lala's
Saturday's party in Regent's Park saw the return of camp favourites Boney M, which always gives us the chance to dress up in gaudy outfits and big hair.  The audience were resplendent in their afros - I have lived in places that were smaller than some of the hairdos that were waving about on the dancefloor all evening!

Boney M in glorious technicolour!
The audience had been backcombing their hair for most of the day...
On Sunday at Comptons we were treated to an evening of live music.  Phiona Ember was up first followed by Maximillion Kleene.  It was Phiona's second show at Comptons and she proved to be a great success once again with her warm vocals and humour.

Phiona Ember and the audience of mad hatters!
Maximillion was performing his first concert at Comptons and was a hit with the audience.  He has an easygoing style and a fantastic range of songs in his repertoire.

Maximillion and his cow tipping jar!
This coming Saturday we have the return of ABBA to the park.

LIVE acts at Comptons today

1pm (9pm UK)   Phiona Embar, LIVE singer and Guitarist
2pm (10pm UK) Maximillion Kleen performing LIVE

If music feeds the soul, Maximillion Kleene is the food of the gods. His dynamic musical range and smooth groove provide many a listener with a virtual buffet of auditory temptations. Max started his music career with formal study of piano at the Royal Conservatory but quickly realized that it was the guitar guys who got the chicks. By 19, he was seriously immersed to the very center of his musical soul in AC/DC and from there branched out to experiment with sounds that range from Pearl Jam to Foo Fighters  to Jason Mraz. Max brings high energy and a vast repertoire of quirky, classic, and current covers to Second Life. Oozing charisma and charm, he provides his fans with an hour of musical magic.

Weekend in Review - 9-11 September

On Friday London City saw the return of Neil Diamond to the stage at Madame Lala's London Revue.

Saturday provided us with the chance to try something different and I don't think anyone expected it to be as successful as it was.  Given that it was the Last Night of the Proms in real life, we decided to have a crack at it ourselves as our party in Regent's Park.  Although it was suspected that it would be something of a niche market, it proved to be so popular that we did an encore performance at Compton's on Sunday.

The audience get in to the mood with patriotic costumes and flag waving!

Ms Ruby Babylon of Madame Lala's London Revue swings in for her solo spot
Thanks to everyone who made the event such a huge success and thank you for the continued support which allows us to go on producing such events for your enjoyment.

Following on from a Roy Orbison tribute performance at Madame Lala's London Revue on Wednesday, we had high expectations for music at the weekend in London City - and we weren't disappointed as there was something for everyone!

The usual mayhem ensued at Bar Soho as we kicked the weekend off, before moving on too Madame Lala's London Revue for a live performance by indie icon,Father Time.  Father Time took to the stage and made the venue his own with a performance that left the audience breathless.

Indie Icon, Father Time
On Saturday there was a Party in the Park, with London City favourite, Mapoo Little.  Ms Little performed a selection of Lady Gaga hits in her own showstopping style complete with stunning sets and big vocals.
