Last weekend we demolished Cair, right down to the plywood. The only things we left were the steam house, which is some 500 meters up and the build platform (seemed kinda silly to take both of these up when we like them the way they are.
The ground was a different story. Cair has always been a park, although it has had many different structures on it over the years. Things on the ground were just not working, we were not using the builds, there were tons of prims being used for no apparent reason, and so it was time to tear it up! (did I mention I like this part?)
So we spent the Labor Day weekend designing and rebuilding Cair, setting things right and making it a park once again.
As luck would have it, we were scheduled to play at Miso’s Tap today (if I get this article in before midnight), however due to unforeseen events the event was cancelled.
So we decided since we had a set list ready and Cair had not been given a proper opening ceremony, that we should use the opportunity to play there.
Lots of nice folks showed up to lend us a hand in celebrating the opening, if i start naming names I will skip someone and then be in deep trouble. So thanks to everyone who came!! (yes, you are right I am a chicken)
Saturday we opened ahead of Peet Peterman at Guthries, I sure enjoy playing there, so many fine musicians in SL and so many nice folks who help those of us just starting out. Like Thinkerer Melville, Dottie Iceberg and Reggier Rumbaud.
Even Peet helped us with a difficult audio issue which had been driving both whirl and I almost crazy.
So here’s the deal, go see a show in Second Life, support the venues with a some lindens, because these places provide a place where musicians can all go. And without music, I’m afraid SL would be pretty dull.
See ya’all next week, we will be playing at Cookie on Saturday Sept 19th at 7 PM SL, and then Hobo Island on Sunday, Sept 20th at 2 PM SL, hope to see ya there!
