Breaking News: Martian's Defeated Again!

Thank you to everyone who either appeared in, or attended, The War Of The Worlds interactive Stage Show.

The cast all died magnificently in the heat ray and resurrected just as quickly for the Tripod invasion.  Everyone deserves to win whatever the SL equivalent of the Oscar's is. 

Happy Halloween.. and the events continue today at Substation's macabre collection of music from Bailey.

Clocks go back in UK and Europe

As British Summer Time and Daylight Saving ends in the UK and Europe, our clocks went back by 1 hour this morning, October 29th.

So what was 8pm UK and 12 noon in SL, will be   8pm UK and 1pm SL Time.

This means for US Residents, events in London City will appear to be one hour earlier than usual (and hopefully not one hour later because everyone gets so confused at this time of year).

American clocks will go back (for the very last time) on November 5th and we will all catch up again!

The Martians Arrive on Saturday 12pm SL


"At midnight, on the 12th of August, a huge mass of luminous green gas erupted from Mars and sped towards Earth. Across two hundred million miles of void, invisibly hurtling towards us, came the first of the missiles that were to bring so much calamity to Earth. As I watched, there was another jet of gas. It was another missile, starting on its way.

And that's how it was for the next ten nights. A flare, spurting out from Mars. Bright green, drawing a green mist behind it; a beautiful, but somehow disturbing sight. Ogilvy, the astronomer, assured me we were in no danger. He was convinced there could be no living thing on that remote, forbidding planet".

Join us for The War of The Worlds interactive stage show, today.  London City at 12pm SL time.

Please dress in turn of the century clothing or steampunk if you would like to be with us on the stage for this interactive show.

Halloween - War of The Worlds Stage Show - Saturday

      The War of The Worlds comes to London City on Saturday!

On  30th October 1938 long before television, CBS broadcast a radio version of The War of The Worlds.

They mentioned several times at the start of the show that it was a dramatization.

The format of the show was that of a light music program, constantly interrupted by reporters giving an account of the aliens progressive invasion.

What the network had overlooked was that the average radio listener to jump stations throughout the evening.

As the play continued, more and more people tuned in to the War of The Worlds broadcast without realising it was a play. Furthermore the radio broadcast had used real town names instead of fictitious ones, and one by one each town fell into the hands of the Martians.

Panic ensued as whole towns, swept in waves of hysteria, packed their possessions and fled to surrounding areas.

A suicide was reported as one woman said she would rather die than be taken by the Martians. In another town there was a fatal stampede as residents desperate to leave trampled each other.

The following morning CBS were forced to hold a press conference to explain themselves and to apologize for the duress they had subjected their listeners to.

Ultimately with such intense press coverage, this catapulted the actor who has played the lead reporter, a young and unknown Orson Welles, into super-stardom.  Just three short years later, he wrote, produced, directed and starred in Citizen Kane.

Join us in London City on Saturday for the interactive stage show version of this most famous of classics.

Our evening begins with a huge mass of luminous gas erupting from Mars and heading towards Earth.

Across two-hundred-million miles of void, invisibly hurtling towards us, is the first of the missiles that will bring so much calamity.

Be part of this show.  Come dressed however you like, but to be in the cast and to dance on the stage, please wear turn of the century or steampunk clothing.  Men in cloth caps and working clothes, ladies in bustles or bonnets, or as maids.   Circa anytime between 1880 to 1940.

The event starts at 1pm SL Time (8pm UK)

Blondie on Saturday

Forty years ago (at least), waitress Debbie Harry, who had been performing part-time in a folk band, formed Blondie with her friend Chris Stein.

In 1976 they released their first album Blondie and from then on became a huge success in Australia, England and America.

Although the bulk of their hits were in a relatively short timespan from 1978 to 1981, their most successful release, Maria was not until the band reformed, many years later in 1999.

Now regularly touring again, you can enjoy the hits once more at The Blondie Tribute Concert, this Saturday in London City.  The party begins at  12pm SL (8pm UK) with the show an hour later at 1pm SL.
