As I get back into the normal (????) routine of things in SL, I took some time and went venue hopping. Time in SL is equivalent to dog years in rl. LOL Miss a week and it is like missing a year....Missing a couple of months and wow!!!!
Started out at Kickin....always a fun place to visit.....ScrtsSafe and LilMissPriss truly outdo themselves here. I watched Zoe Aries, I had not heard her before....a great voice....and an awesome entertainer.
While there, I was able to see the performer Toran Babenco. Many of you may remember me mentioning him before...He was the winner in SL MUSIC RACES FOR A CURE international song contest. I stayed to hear him after Zoe, his first gig after surviving Sandy...and being without power for 10 days.....We are so glad he is back and okay. Listening to him, I can see how he won that contest...this guy is good. Besides the sucker in me....when he dedicates his first song to me..... He also joined the team for the 2013 campaign.
Kickin always has quite a few friends there, and I got to see a woman that I adore....Shaye Dezno. She shared some personal things with me, and I am soooo very happy for her. As she told me she was going to be on the team again next year, that also made me happy....Shaye is a wonderful addition to the team, she fights hard for the cause and does whatever she can. She also shared some good information that showed me that so much of what we did also trickles over into other parts of sl. She now performs regularly at a venue and has a fan that is always at her shows due to one of the events that was held.
Thanks to my experiences on the team, I learned to follow the more non-English speaking venues and performers....there is sooo much talent there. I popped over to Astral Dreams ...a gorgeous venue, with the talented Giovanni Tomasso performing. This is a performance that I could not understand local chat...it was in Italian....giggles I really need to learn to use my translator more often....but the music and the performance made it not matter.
Then back to Kickin to hear Bill473. WOW...this is a voice that ahem....ladies....you will swoon!!!!!
On to Stargazer Cafe, and Brendan Shoreland. Brandan is a such a talented man, never sure why I do not see him more often....makes a mental note to do just that. Stargazer also allowed me to see other old friends...Serene and Woodstock, it was wonderful to see both of you. This is truly a beautiful venue. There is a sense of peace here.
On to Aerock Beach, one of sl's newest venues....and more old friends...smiling. I am also listening to Laralette Lane for the first time, this woman is fantastic. A must see for anyone that loves listening an angel's voice.
Time to relax for a while...let rl take over. Until next time, Hoping all of you are having a wonderful sl and rl!!!!
