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!

Adevina Citron singing LIVE on Saturday



We have a wonderfully talented Live singer for Party in The Park this coming Saturday from 12pm SL (8pm UK).


From the bottom of her her soul, Adevina seeks to share her heart through music and song. 
An experienced performer, she has come into her own as a top notch entertainer on SL.  An eclectic song list allows each concert to be tailored to the mood of the moment.

Adevina is now entering her second year of singing on SL and is perfecting the art of weaving her music and personality into a tapestry that makes for a great show.  Residents all across the SL grid are discovering and enjoying her light-hearted, fun, and responsive interaction with them.  You never know what you will hear when you show up at her concert, but you will love it.

Adevina is on stage at 1pm SL (9pm UK) here, in Regent's Park

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 entertainment...so 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 Sunday...how 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".

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 - 19-20 November



Hello kiddies, auntie Bailey here again with another weekend roundup.  Please bear with me on this, I am a little sore today as I was hit by one of the new London buses yesterday - quite a surprise as I was in my rooftop garden at the time...

On Saturday we had the fantastic Helvis Xue performing live in Regent's Park - about as close to the real Elvis as we could get without coaxing him out of hiding in the chippy in Skegness.  The sim was full to bursting and he lulled us all with some smooth tunes first before rocking our socks off.

The audience adoring Helvis
Sunday saw us having a hoedown in Comptons pub, which is always a novelty but thankfully it wasn't my turn to sweep up all the straw afterwards.

Elsewhere in London City 3: Victoria things are progressing well.  A newsagent has set up shop there and the new club for ladies who like ladies, Lezbo, is close to opening.  On London City 2: West End, the World's End pub is proving to be popular with a range of events such as strip bingo(!) and trivia contests.

Strip bingo at World's End...
Rumour has it that following the appearance of a few signs of Christmas across the city, the seasonal festivities will be getting bigger over the next few days...watch this space for details.

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!

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.

Brian Narstrom
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 - 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.

 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!

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'!

Rolf Harris takes to the stage
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.

Sunday: An Evening With Madame Lala




The scene is set for an Evening with Madame Lala.

People often ask Madame Lala to dig deep into her record collection which spans a few centuries and over crank some old songs to modern disco standards.

This morning, during a gin induced depression, Madame Lala sat cleaning all her old scratched vinyl and has decided to throw a cheese and whine party from 1pm PDT in Madame Lala's

Her gramaphone is ready to play all her 33's at 45 and her 45's at 78.  She's bought a new needle and Lala hopes you will come and reminisce, laugh and cry at these old records that she has scraped the barnacles off.
Please Bring A Bottle
RSVP.


Mapoo Little rocked the sims again last night with a fantastic rendition of PINK songs and as usual she sung LIVE.   The beautiful Mapoo returns again to Mainland London on Saturday 4th June, this time singing the songs of Tina Turner.

This was a dazzling show, with effects, a motorbike and a very talented lady with a superb voice who sings so very hard for her supper.   Thank you Mapoo for sharing your talents with us.
