Dusty Springfield on Saturday



Perhaps one of the most iconic looks of the 1960's belongs to singer Dusty Springfield, with her white backcombed hair and thick eyeliner.  It was a look that so many have tried to emulate.

Dusty, hit the charts in 1963 with I Only Want To Be With You, and from that moment on both sides of the Atlantic, a star was born.  She followed her first hit up with many more, including Wishin' and Hopin', I Only Want To Be With You, I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself, You Don't Have To Say You Love Me, and Son of A Preacher Man and many many more.

Dusty is appearing in London City on Saturday and the party starts at 1pm SL time (8pm UK), with the show an hour later at 2pm SL time.

Clocks go forward tonight in Europe and UK.  Back not normal times next week.

Going Irish: The Nolans in Concert, on Saturday



It is The Nolan's on Saturday!

The Nolan's, who originally formed in 1974 as The Nolan Sisters, are an Irish/British girl group, famous for uptempo covers of well known songs.

In their own right, they are most famous for I'm In The Mood For Dancing, which when released in 1979, topped the charts around the world, and to this day, remains one of the most famous disco songs of the era.

The sisters, Anne, Denise, Maureen, Linda and Bernie, became regular favourites, appearing on many weekly prime-time shows, including The Two Ronnies.

Family feuds, ill health and the death of Bernie, put a stop to their act in the 2000's but the band reformed again in 2009, but stopped performing again by 2014.

Enjoy this show on Saturday at 12pm SL time (8pm UK), featuring all the Nolan's at the height of their popularity, with special guest, Kim Woodburn, who recently appeared quite demented along side Coleen Nolan on multiple shows!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!



Pissed as a fart, "Two fingers of whisky please"

A very happy St. Patrick's day to you all!

You can join everyone in Lala's at 1pm SLT (9pm UK) for a right proper knees up with copious amounts of liquor.

St. Patrick, the Patron Saint of Partaay, was born in Belfast in 1955 and is credited with forcing Christianity on the people of Ireland.  But he did some good things too..  He was the first 3 parts pissed Bishop who would regularly have a nip, mid-sermon for medicinal purposes whilst singing Hymn's in the style of Boris Yeltsin.

The Apostle of Ireland, came to a sticky end when he fell into a vat of rum in 1995, but left this world with a smile and a burp.

Let's all party today, its what St. Patrick would have wanted!

Clocks change in SL but not in Europe yet



For the next 2 weeks it is utter confusion, as the US clocks (and therefore the Second Life clocks) have gone forward an hour, two-weeks before we in Europe catch up.

Here in London City, we still operate UK times for our clubs and concerts, so, until 27th March all of our regular events are 1 hour later than usual.

Last night The Dubliners busted the region with a hundred visitors enjoying reels and jigs for St. Patricks Day.   Next Saturday, another Irish band,  The Nolans!

Joe Dolan on Saturday



The Irish Festival begins, with top Irish turn, Joe Dolan this Saturday. 

He is known mainly for his flamboyant shows which include many well know standards and for his high pitched singing voice, without using falsetto, which is reminiscent of Greek singer Demis Roussos.

Whilst Joe never achieved notable chart success in America, he regularly toured the States and played a residency in Vegas.  In Ireland he is the only Irish singer to have charted in the top ten in each decade from the 1960s onwards.

Joe Dolan died in 2007, but his talents live on and whilst you may not be familiar with the singer you will certainly know the songs and enjoy Joe's rendition.

On Saturday we invite you to enjoy this remarkable entertainer at Party in The Park.

Party starts at 1pm SL (8pm  UK) and the show is an hour later at 2pm SL.

Location: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City/96/104/23



Going Irish .. in blue!



Some pictures from The Joe Dolan concert last night.

More to come today, with Substation at 11pm SL time and Worlds End at 1pm SL.

Have yourselves a lovely Sunday.
