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

Total insanity at the weekend in London City.  The Friday event at Bar Soho (Best in Green) proved to be a warm up for the later event at Madame Lala's London Revue, which got the weekend off to a rocking start with special guest Tina Turner.

On Saturday we had a party in the park that proved to be a fantastic event and exceeded everyone's expectations.  The special guest was Australian musician, singer-songwriter, composer, painter and television personality, Mr Rolf Harris!  A free didgeridoo and extra leg were available as gifts for visitors.  The backing band were very enthusiastic and took to pogo sticks for 'Tie Me Kangaroo Down' and donned their extra legs to dance along to 'Jake the Peg'!

Everyone became a Rolferoo for the evening!
Sunday contained a disappointment when the scheduled performer was forced to cancel, but all was forgotten when London City favourite, Brian Narstrom, returned for a second live concert at Comptons pub.

The weekend was rounded off nicely with some chilled out tunes from DJ Torric Rodas.

Weekend in Review

What a wild weekend in London will take me all week to recover!  The weekend got of to a truly hectic start on Friday evening.  Usually there is a party in Bar Soho with me as host (takes a bow), but we relocated to the Regent's Park as the party was only the start of the evenings entertainment.  So we kicked off with Best in Pink and then we had the first of two concerts - Simon and Garfunkel.  We then went from the sublime to the ridiculous with Abba!

Saturday saw the Bee Gees take to the main stage in Regent's Park for a concert that had the crowd singing along - their vocal cords lubricated by the near infamous Soho Beer.'s the Bee Gees resplendent in white suits and big hair
On Sunday we had our usual chill out day until a fabulous 50s party got underway at Comptons pub.  It felt like we were travelling in time as earlier in the week we had a Roaring 20s night at Madame Lala's London Revue - truly the first time I have been to an event in Second Life where everyone has sat on the bar drinking tea...  The highlight of the fabulous fifties night was a live performance from a very talented singer by the name of Brian Narstrom, who performed a selection of smooth songs to round off the weekend in a perfect style.

The fantastic Mr Brian Narstrom
