Weekend in Review - 20-21 August

The usual weekend madness fell across London City at the weekend.  As always, we kicked off the weekend with a party at Bar Soho.  DJ Ruby took to the turntables and treated the Best in Green crowd to some wild tunes before we all moved on to Madame Lala's London Revue to see us in to the wee small hours of Saturday morning.

On Saturday we had a real treat as Billy Joel and his band joined us a for a concert in the park.

Sunday was a new experience for everyone as there was a brand new DJ at Comptons pub - Bailey Saxmundham (oh wait...that's me!)

Next weekend is a long weekend in England and we have some special treats lined up...

Weekend in Review - 13-14 August

As weekends go in London City, things proved to be even more wild than usual.  There were the regular parties in Bar Soho and Madame Lala's London Revue on Friday to put us in the mood for the weekend.

Saturday marked the first anniversary of London Soho.  There was a fun fair in Regent's Park and three events!  We started off with DJ Torric warming the crowd up.

Best in Union Jack - and check out that cake on the stage!

The evening then got fully underway with London City favourite Mapoo Little.  Ms Little came fully prepared with a gorgeous gown, a range of sets and her big voice.  She wowed the assembled revellers with a selection of classic Motown tunes.

The beautiful and talented Mapoo Little

After Mapoo's concert, everyone moved back over to the birthday stage (complete with huge cake) to dance the night away to the tunes of DJ SW Easterwood, who usually only pleasures us aurally here in London City on a Wednesday at Bar Soho.

As usual on a Sunday, we had our early morning chillout with coffee and doughnuts at the Hub, before everyone got their dancing sandals on for an impromptu toga party with the lovely Demis Roussos warbling his way though the afternoon.  If you ever come to London City for one of Demis' concerts, watch out for his friend...the wind; you could get blown away by the performance!

To round the birthday weekend off in a classy but laidback style at Comptons pub, the lovely Britt McMahon took to the stage with a tribute to one of the rat pack's finest, Mr Dean Martin.

Incidentally, Britt is back on Saturday 20th August for a tribute to Billy Joel!

Happy birthday London's to another fantastic year!

Comptons Never Looked So Good

The SL Enquirer has run a story about London City today.   Read it Here!

Also in the news today...

The Community in London City was shocked to the core today as Comptons combusted!

In a bizarre twist of fate it is rumoured that the fire was caused by a cheap plasma telly acquired only last night!

Luckily, London City Builder and part time Firefigher Billy managed to lay his hands on an unfeasibly long hose to douse melting barmaid Fanny.

The blaze is under control and Comptons will open tonight as usual.  Sorry if the beer is a bit on the warm side.

Fanny - A Barmaid worth saving!

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'!

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.

A Year Of Soho

Who would have thought that a year ago when we opened on a small parcel only big enough for Bar Soho and five stores, that a year on we would have a whole private region bursting with content,  shops and people... and be building our next region!

Join us here in London City to celebrate a year of Soho during August.

As the Featured Second Life Destination says, we will hold two concerts each weekend, have a fashion show towards the end of the month, featuring the very best products from our 70 merchants and have competitions and celebrations throughout the month.

This weekend on Saturday at 1pm, enjoy our totally bizarre and hysterical first Birthday party with the legendary Rolf Harris performing with his backing band the Rolfaroos

On Sunday, Live vocalist and professional entertainer, BG Singer will be singing Big Band and Swing songs of Michael Buble, Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra at Compton's Pub from 1pm.

Join us for another big fun London Weekend here in London City!

Weekend in Review

What a wild weekend in London will take me all week to recover!  The weekend got of to a truly hectic start on Friday evening.  Usually there is a party in Bar Soho with me as host (takes a bow), but we relocated to the Regent's Park as the party was only the start of the evenings entertainment.  So we kicked off with Best in Pink and then we had the first of two concerts - Simon and Garfunkel.  We then went from the sublime to the ridiculous with Abba!

Benny, Frida, Agnetha and Bjorn take to the stage
Saturday saw the Bee Gees take to the main stage in Regent's Park for a concert that had the crowd singing along - their vocal cords lubricated by the near infamous Soho Beer.'s the Bee Gees resplendent in white suits and big hair
On Sunday we had our usual chill out day until a fabulous 50s party got underway at Comptons pub.  It felt like we were travelling in time as earlier in the week we had a Roaring 20s night at Madame Lala's London Revue - truly the first time I have been to an event in Second Life where everyone has sat on the bar drinking tea...  The highlight of the fabulous fifties night was a live performance from a very talented singer by the name of Brian Narstrom, who performed a selection of smooth songs to round off the weekend in a perfect style.
