Erasure Concert on Saturday



Back in 1985, singer/songwriter Andy Bell and songwriter Vince Clarke formed the band Erasure.

With the release of the single Sometimes the band established itself as one of the most successful bands in Britain during the 80s to mid-90s.  By the end of the 80s they had broken into the American market and to date have sold over 25 million albums.

Always popular with the LGBT club circuit, the band still performs today to a more mainstream audience.  They are best known for the songs, Oh L'amour, Victim of Love, Blue Savannah and A Little Respect .

Enjoy a tribute to Erasure here in London City on Saturday.  Party starts 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the show an hour later at 1pm SL time.  Teleport: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City/95/104/23

Pride: Pracatan on Saturday: "I lub ewe"




Something camp to kick off Pride!

This week it's Margarita Pracatan  a Cuban singer(?) who found unexpected success in the 1990s.

Her big break came on the Clive James TV show where each week Margarita would play out the show, singing  her own unique rendition of famous songs, but performed on a Casio electronic organ, often with an unusually fast beat, and often playing all the right notes, but not necessarily in the right order.

Now, in London, she  performs a breathtaking show with an unusual orchestra.

A show not to be missed!  Trust us!

Party starts 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the concert an hour later at 1pm.

It must be summer!




You just know that its official summer, when (at enormous expense), you see the Olympic sized swimming pool arrive in London City.  Come cool your heels, flap your gums and get a beer down your screech.
