Chip Takacs singing LIVE in London City

London City are proud to bring to you LIVE entertainment in the form of singer Chip Takacs.

Who and what is Chip Takacs? Chip is a boy who was born an raised in the seaside town of Rockaway Beach, New York.  at 14 he traded a B.B. gun for a secova electric guitar. Taking lessons from his friend Mike Gordon he progressed to play live shows  at local bars in Rockaway. His crowning moment came when he got to play New York's famous night club, CBGB's.  Chip has played many different places since then and now brings his music to second life.

Using professional back tracks, he sings and plays live guitar, as if the back tracks are his band. Chip mainly covers songs from the hits of the 70's 80s, and beyond.

He has a typical Brooklyn attitude and isn't afraid to let it flow at his show, and the music has the same bend... some like it, some don't... one thing they all agree on is, it is a show to see and hear...

Make sure you head on over to London City for an event you won't forget.
He takes the stage in LC3 at 11am SLT on 4th July... come on over and join the fun!

Compton's on Sunday

Compton's Pub in London City is most definitely the place to be on a Sunday evening.

It is the best place to catch up with others and find out all the gossip that has happened over the course of the weekend.
With Live Acts, tribute performances and a fun and friendly crowd, its little wonder that Compton's is such a popular place to visit!


London City, The Most Popular Destination in Second Life

Weekend in Review - 13th to 15th April

Well that's another weekend over with and a new week has been birthed.  On a brighter note, that means we are even closer to the next weekend in London City!

The weekend got underway for us at Bar Soho on Friday with a Best in Sportswear contest.  Hostess Katty stepped in to help out as the regular host was abducted by aliens (or RL, which is much the same experience).  Yours truly stepped in to DJ for the night and I have to confess, I rather enjoyed myself...not sure how much the clientele enjoyed my dance tracks though!

After Bar Soho, we headed down the street as we usually do on a Friday to Madame Lala's London Revue, where there was a special performance by Blondie.

Maybe not Atomic, but definitely traces of radiation...
The party at World's End pub on Saturday was in danger of being raided by the police as the contest was Best in Baddie.  Thankfully the criminal masterminds of London City were able to stay free and made their escape after the event.

For the main event in Regent's Park we saw the ever popular Bee Gees take to the stage.  I do like a nice stage but it usually takes more than that to get my knickers wagging, however, this was something special - a giant disco ball that opened up to reveal the group.

An awesome stage set
The boys on stage
Movers and groovers on the Regent's Park dancefloor
After the concert in Regent's Park, revellers (who were obviously drunk and had impaired judgement) boarded the night bus.  Their destination was a Best in Space event at Lezbo and given the bus drivers in London City, a flight in to space is highly probable.

Starship Lezbo goes in to orbit
On Sunday we had another sixties inspired event at Substation with the contest theme of Mods and Rockers.  There was also a live performance by the ever lovely Adevina Citron - great voice and a great personality too.

A great crowd for Adevina
To round the weekend off, there was a Rocky Horror Picture Show event over at Lezbo.

Defies description...
And that's all from me for another week.  Stay tuned to this channel for more news on London City!

Weekend in Review - March 2nd to 4th

So kiddies, we had all the usual stuff in London City over the weekend - some bawdiness at Bar Soho, an utter campfest at Madame Lala's and lots of lovely lunacy at Lezbo.  The big events were at Regent's Park on Saturday and Comptons on Sunday - where we had two live performers.

Helvis Xue was our Saturday spectacle in the park.  Always a popular singer with a good selection of songs and plenty of banter with the audience.

Helvis and audience
On Sunday at the local boozer, we had the vocal talents of Adevina Citron, who is always good value for money with her songs and wit.

Adevina on stage
In the not so humble opinion of auntie Bailey, if you are not coming to London City on a weekend, you are really missing out on the start planning to join us from Friday!

Weekend in Review - January 27th to 29th

So here we are - the final weekend review of January 2012.  This month has gone by so quickly, but as the saying goes 'time flies when you are having fun'.  Of course they also say that 'time flies like an arrow, but fruit flies like a banana', but we shall pass over that one as the talk of bananas makes me giddy.

Friday started off for us as it usually does with a visit to Bar Soho where we had a Best in Wild West theme with DJ Billy 'The Kid' Arentire and hostess Lisa.  This helped everyone unwind before we all turned in to tie dye clad hippies for Madame Lala's London Revue.  Special guests were a tribute to Peter, Paul and Mary and the contest was somewhere between a peace protest and a love in.  Although if I am really honest, from the state of how some people were dressed it was more like a protest against good taste...

Peter, Paul and Mary (as opposed to Mary, Mungo and Midge)
The peace protest
On Saturday we had a real treat as one of London City's favourite SLebrities took to the main stage in Regent's Park.  Yes, we had the return of Mapoo Little and her extraordinary voice.  She wowed the crowd with a selection from her repertoire taken from Amy Winehouse and Adele.  A stunning concert as always.

Mapoo lets rip
The crowd shake their pixels for Ms Little
There were, of course, the usual events across other London City venues - Comptons on Sunday and Lezbo on Saturday and do we fit so much in to one weekend?!

And that is it from auntie Bailey for this week.  All that remains for me to say, in the spirit of Friday's event at Madame Lala's establishment, is "May peace shower down on you".

Peter, Paul and Mary in Revue - Friday

For fifty years, Peter Yarrow, Paul Stookey and Mary Travers entertained audiences under the name of Peter, Paul and Mary.

Best remembered for Leaving on a Jet Plane, If I Had A Hammer and Puff The Magic Dragon, the trio also recorded many more popular folk songs of the time.

Take a trip down memory lane this Friday evening at Madame Lala's London Revue.
Doors open at 2pm SL (10pm UK) with Peter, Paul and Mary in Concert at 3pm SL (11pm UK).

Madame Lala's:

Mapoo Little sings Adele in Regent's Park on Saturday

Party In The Park, starts at 12pm SL (8pm UK) with Mapoo in Concert at 1pm SL (9pm UK)

Competition and Prizes for all!

Weekend in Review - January 20th to 22nd

Hello kiddies!  It is I, auntie Bailey here once again with a review of the weekend in London City.  Don't they go by so quickly?  I suppose time flies when you are having fun and London City was full to the gunnels (or gunwales if you want to be absolutely correct) with entertainment.

The weekend started even earlier than usual for us as there was the relaunch of World's End pub - with dancing, music, darts and hot tub action with new landladies, Coffee and Heather.

World's End relaunch party
This was followed by the usual riotous activity at Bar Soho and Madame Lala's London Revue.  Three events in three establishments in one night...sometimes we really spoil you!

On Saturday we had the welcome return of Helvis Xue to Regent's Park.  Seems appropriate having the King in Regent's Park!

Party people having their socks rocked off!
Helvis - the King (of hotness)
Following on from Helvis in the park, we headed off to Lezbo for a "shiny and shades" contest.

The Lezbo crowd show us their shiny bits...
Sunday is our weekend wind down but that didn't mean there was any let up on the entertainment front.  We gathered at Comptons pub for a Best in Casual contest.

And after Comptons it was back off to Lezbo for Best in Formal - with enough big frocks to lag a sim packed in to one venure!

Weekend in Review - 14-16 October

Yet another fantastic weekend in London City - a mix of old and new.

The weekend was started off with at Bar Soho with a Best in White event that saw everyone looking pure and virginal - so long as you didn't look too closely at some of them, especially the DJ (Billy Arentire aka the CandyMan) - I would have shown you all a pic of his outfit but I couldn't get a clear shot as my hand wobbled on the camera every time I looked at it.

After Bar Soho we caught the bus down to the other end of the street to Madame Lala's London Revue.  I prefer to walk rather than catching the bus, as I am an avatar not a crash test dummy.  We had a night of campness as is always ensured at Madame Lala's establishment.

For Saturday's Party in the Park we all gathered in Regent's Park with our beverages as the contest was Best in Low Lag Alcoholic Drink - an easy one for most of our members to dress for as there is never a shortage of drinks around London City.  The headline act was a tribute to Simon and Garfunkel, which was greatly appreciated by the assembled masses.  I guess Simon and Garfunkel qualify as the old I mentioned in the opening line of this post.

The new I mentioned came in the delightful form (and voice) of Adevina Citron, who made her first appearance at Comptons pub and was well received by the enthusiastic audience.

Next weekend we are in for a treat as our Take That tribute will be in Regent's Park on Saturday!

On Saturday, join us all day in London City for some great competitions, fun and a Cash Hunt, then Party in The Park from 12pm SLT (8pm UK).  This weeks concert at 2pm SLT (10pm) is the uptempo retempoed Simon & Garfunkel Concert.  (350L for Best with Booze contest).

Making her first appearance in London City, the hugely talented Adevina Citron will be performing LIVE at Comptons at 12pm SLT (8pm UK) on Sunday!

Next Saturday's Brand New Concert:  TAKE THAT!

Have a great weekend with us and thank you for making London City the preferred choice for London in Second Life.

Canada Gates - St James Park & New Resident Inductions

We've been busy as beavers in London's West End! This week saw the completion of St James Park as we added the Canada Gates and the New Resident Induction Area!

Canada Gates in St James Park
Although not in the correct real life geographical location, the Canada Gate is the entrance to St James Park which is located in London City's West End. Once you enter the park new Residents to Second Life will find a visual tutorial on the use of Viewer 2. This comprehensive tutorial helps induct new Residents into Second Life so they have a better understanding and further enjoy their 3D environment.

New Resident Induction

St James Park is not just for new Residents of Second Life and London City, existing Residents will find peaceful spots to rest, or sit at the wters edge and reflect. All Residents can visit the heli-pad and fly a helicopter or an ultra light for a truely one of a kind London experience.

London City in Second Life encompasses the real life areas of Soho, Regents Park, City of London, St James Park, West End and South Bank.

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 - 27-29 August

A day late with my post this week as it was a holiday here yesterday and the party kept going in London City!

We started the weekend as we always do with an event at Bar Soho, but things quickly moved on as Madame Lala's London Revue Bar had a special event - a live performance by BG Singer, who treated the enthusiastic patrons to a fantastic set.

BG Singer - and audience
On Saturday we had a brand new show as part of the Party in the Park - a concert featuring a selection of divas.  It was billed as a massive stage and a massive show; of course, the unspoken part was massive egos!  Carole King, Shania Twain, Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin, Gloria Estefan and Celine Dion all stormed the stage at various points of the show with big voices, big hair and big personalities.

The divas all shared a dressing room without incident - although eye contact seemed rare...
Sunday proved to be a totally strange day, unlike any I have witnessed since arriving in London City.  The party at Comptons pub had a Spanish/Mexican theme -  think sombreros and a dancing cactus..  We had a new performer, a fantastic live singer by the name of Phiona Ember, who wowed the crowd with her vocal talents.  The evening then took a bizarre twist as Comptons very own pub landlady, Fanny Craidic, gave us a 'treat' in the form of a cooking demonstration.  No one was entirely sure what was being made and thankfully the kitchen sink overflowed and helped to douse the flames from the cooker...

The weekend was brought to a rapturous close by another Party in the Park with a concert by the amazing Amy MacDonald and a selection of hardcore tunes from DJ Ruby.

Amy and the band
Party goers in Regent's Park
 How can we top such a fantastic weekend?  Not easy, but we intend to try.  On Friday we have Father Time at Madame Lala's, Mapoo Little in Regent's Park on Saturday and Britt McMahon as Leonard Cohen at Comptons pub on Sunday!
