It's like a heatwave...



Join our famous drag artist couple, Bailey and CoffeeQueen today for Substation in the London Subway from 11am SLT (7pm UK) for some more retro music and a good gossip about who's doing what with whom, as we collectively stick-it-out in this monstrous heatwave that has engulfed the UK.
Then at 1pm SLT, hope on over to the beach with Katty, who will be cooling you down with some summer breeze music and some dodgy cocktails.

Here are some pictures from Emmylou last night..

Emmylou Harris Concert



Emmylou Harris is an American singer and songwriter.


Back in the 60s she was spotted by Gram Parsons who recognized her special talent of introducing harmonies that the song writers had overlooked.  After Gram's untimely and bizarre death, Emmylou went solo and carved her own career.

She has recorded with Bob Dylan, John Denver, Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, Roy Orbison, Neil Young and most recently toured with Mark Knopfler.

In 1995 she diverged from country for a new Indy-style sound for her album "Wrecking Ball", which was panned by critics as career suicide, and yet sold more then 5 million copies.  Since then Emmylou has periodically, continued to dip her toes into this unique style of music.

She went on to win 13 Grammy's and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2008.

Emmylou Harris appears in London City on Saturday.   The party begins at 12pm SL time (8pm UK) with the concert an hour later at 1pm SL time.

The weekend weather is on its way!



RL London Forecast
This urgent newsflash is to remind you to get down to the off-licence or supermarket and stock up on essentials, such as beer, spirits, mixers and junk food.  This weekend is going to be super-heated and you will need lots and lots of grog to remain hydrated and happy whilst you party with us in London City.  Probably best to get some bottled water too, to wash it down with, even if it does taste like medicine.


The Beach in London City West - Party every Sunday at 1pm SL (9pm UK)

It's the weekend!



To think we were all grumbling about the rain and temperature only a week ago.  If ever there was a case of being careful what you wish for, it is tomorrows forecast.

Here in London we are set for 34c, which is around the mid 90's in old money, or closer to 100F indoors if you do not have aircon.

Being a responsible estate, we urge you to invest in copious amounts of grog for this coming weekend which is likely to be very thirsty work, with all the partying we will be doing.

We recommend Asda this week for their posh bottled beer offer and at only 42p a bottle, what's not to like?

A reminder to please drink responsibly, because I won't be, and you might need to get me home again afterwards.

Happy weekend, and here come's the Sun!



Update.. they got it wrong - and it's hotter than they thought

London Support - We're Hiring!





Four years hence, London City became the first of the Linden Lab Official Community Gateways, with new residents 'born' directly into the estate, and starting their adventure in Second Life.

We have a  trusted team of specially trained residents known as London Support, helping new users acclimatise to the virtual-world.

We are currently looking to increase our team of Support Agents. A shift is typically a couple of hours or more if you wish, and is semi-regular, 3 or more times per week.

We have a familiar faces policy, which means we recruit from the community of visitors and tend not to hire people that we do not know.  It is better for all concerned if we get to know each other first.

You do not have to be an expert, but you do have to be friendly and engaging.

If you are a born helper and like the idea of giving back some of your skills to the new users, and you are able to work comfortably within a team, please see the information contained in the tab Our Team  at the top of this page.
