Venues that rock! - 5 great places to rock & roll on the grid- Hazel Silvermoon- Reporting


There are so many amazing ways to let loose in Second Life and each of us have our favorite go-to locations. For many of us, music venues are a large part of our virtual  existence.. This week, I went out in search of some of the best rock and roll venues on the grid, and wow, did I have a great time! 

(Image Name- The River)

The River

My first stop was The River.  It is an amazing open venue, with a unique guitar decor. The venue is outdoors, and has an absolutely beautiful view of the surrounding landscape. The DJ and Host were both exceptionally warm and welcoming. They played a variety of tunes and it was an all-around pleasant experience.  The crowd was kind and accepting , and everyone was having a great time! They also have many boards around to inform you of upcoming events!

The River:

Sanctuary Rocks

Sanctuary Rocks was one of my favorite places I discovered on my journey. The club features a gothic cathedral vibe and has a very positive atmosphere. The crowd here was very energetic and ready to party! The DJ played a variety of hard rock and metal music and it was very easy to strike up a conversation with those around me. There were also plenty of dance options for both singles and couples. 

Sanctuary Rocks:

Ohana Rock Club-

Ohana Rock Club has a very lively atmosphere and is set on an open waterfront with an island feel. I was lucky enough to experience going on Superbowl Sunday. The club was made into a giant football field to fit the event, and the party was huge! The crowd was pumped, and the music was amazing. They played a variety of modern rock hits, and welcomed any requests that fit the genre. Everyone had a really upbeat attitude, and it really makes you want to return for more!

Ohana Rock Club:

Wet Willies Rock Club

Boasting 15 years on the grid, Wet Willies is a rock club with charm. Both the DJ and host greeted me before I had even entered the club. They displayed a mixture of expertise and professionalism , while still maintaining a kindness that makes you feel like family. The music was a variety of today’s rock hits, and some of past decades as well. I had a great time dancing along with the crowd. Wet Willies is an amazing venue to relax and hear some of your favorite music!

Wet Willies Rock Club:

TuttiFrutti Rock’N Roll Club

If you are looking for a blast from the past, TuttiFrutti Rock’N Roll club has just the thing. Featuring amazing retro 50-60’s style decor, it is sure to make you feel nostalgic. They play a variety of music from past decades, which makes this venue both interesting and different. It is a very welcoming place with some of the coolest decorations in Second life. If you are looking for a wonderful place to spend the evening, TuttiFruitti is for you!!

TuttiFrutti Rock’N Roll Club:

No matter which of these venues you choose, you are sure to be delighted. While each place had its own unique feel, they all had one thing in common: music brings us all together.

Spotlight on Tillen- A Rapidly Rising Rock Star from Russia in Second Life- Lanai Jarrico Reporting...


Tillen’s  repertoire includes hits from well known bands such as Scorpions, Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, Deep Purple and Rainbow,  She is currently and has been performing in rock bands around Moscow for the past 15 years.  Since her very first show, she has captured every listener's attention and has already a very popular following.  This is a performer that is no stranger to delivering a stellar performance in both worlds.
В репертуаре Тиллен хиты таких известных групп, как Scorpions, Оззи Осборн, Metallica, Deep Purple и Rainbow. В настоящее время она выступает и уже 15 лет выступает в рок-группах Москвы. С самого первого выступления она привлекла внимание каждого слушателя и уже успела завоевать большую популярность. Это исполнитель, которому не привыкать показывать звездные выступления в обоих мирах.  

Interview with Tillen (Интервью с Тиллен)
Lanai: Hi Tillen, welcome to Second Life! How did you discover this virtual world?
Lanai:  Привет, Тиллен, добро пожаловать в Second Life! Как вы открыли для себя этот виртуальный мир?  
Tillen: В разгар пандемии играть живые концерты, конечно же, стало невозможно. Тогда моя подруга Rudi (rydut.mildor) сказала мне: «не переживай, ты можешь играть живые концерты в компьютерной игре!» Я тогда рассмеялась, но решила попробовать …

Tillen: In the midst of the pandemic, playing live concerts, of course, became impossible. Then my friend Rudi (rydut.mildor) told me: "Don't worry, you can play live concerts in a computer game!" I then laughed, but decided to try

Lanai: Could you tell our readers a little about yourself, your favorite genre and your experience in the music industry?
Lanai:  Не могли бы вы немного рассказать нашим читателям о себе, своем любимом жанре и своем опыте в музыкальной индустрии?

Tillen: Я всегда любила петь, с детства, но никогда не училась этому – это дело жизни, можно сказать, призвание. Когда мне было 15, у меня появилась своя собственная рок-группа. Мне всегда нравился классический рок и хэви-метал, но вообще я меломан и просто люблю музыку в любом её проявлении, главное чтобы песня была красивая и мелодичная. Уже 15 лет как я выступаю в RL на разных концертных площадках. У меня записаны 4 полноформатных альбома с моей предыдущей группой и дебютный альбом с моей собственной ныне существующей командой. Сейчас мы пишем второй альбом! 
Tillen:   I have always loved to sing, since childhood, but I have never studied it - this is a matter of life, one might say, a vocation. When I was 15, I started my own rock band. I have always liked classical rock and heavy metal, but in general I am a music lover and I just love music in any form, the main thing is that the song is beautiful and melodic. For 15 years now I have been performing in RL at various concert venues. I have 4 full-length albums with my previous band and a debut album with my own current band. Now we are writing our second album!

Lanai: Second Life is an amazing place that allows people from all over the world to create , interact and share their talents with others. Would you say SL is an extension of your real life? How has it helped you?
Lanai:  Second Life - удивительное место, где люди со всего мира могут творить, взаимодействовать и делиться своими талантами с другими. Вы бы сказали, что Second Life - это продолжение вашей реальной жизни? Как вам это помогло?
Tillen: Second Life, как продолжение моей музыкальной жизни – определённо ДА. Это новый опыт, новые впечатления и настоящий драйв, совсем как на живых концертах в реальной жизни. Чёрт, да я волнуюсь перед каждым концертом в Second Life, как перед живым!
Tillen: Second Life as a continuation of my musical life is definitely YES. This is a new experience, new impressions, and a real drive, just like at live concerts in real life. Hell, I get excited before every gig in Second Life as if I were alive in there!

Lanai: In your short time in Second Life, what do you think of the community?
Lanai:  Что вы думаете о сообществе, проведя немного времени в Second Life?
Tillen: Люди здесь отзывчивые и добрые, очень приятно выступать перед теми, кому это действительно интересно!
Translation:  People here are sympathetic and kind, it is very pleasant to speak in front of those who are really interested!

Lanai: Music inspires. It has the power to evoke emotions and nostalgia. What does music mean to you? Do you feel the same rush as you do performing in real life?
Lanai:  Музыка вдохновляет. Умеет вызывать эмоции и ностальгию. Что для тебя значит музыка? Чувствуете ли вы такую же спешку, как когда поете в реальной жизни?
Tillen: Да, такой же драйв и кураж как в реальной жизни! Несколько раз были случаи, когда во время сполнения в second life я действительно плакала, а зрители писали что у них по спине бегут мурашки.
Tillen:  Yes, the same drive and courage as in real life! Several times there were cases when during the shows in second life I actually cried.

Lanai: How often do you perform in SL? Do you have a performance calendar?
Lanai:  Как часто вы играете в SL? У вас есть календарь выступлений?
Tillen: Я выступаю почти каждый день и мне это нравится, когда я не выступаю, я начинаю сильно скучать по концертам!  Календарь есть:
Tilllen: I perform almost every day and I like it, when I am not performing, I start to miss concerts a lot! -

Lanai: How can venue owners book you for a show?
Lanai:  Как владельцы клубов могут записать вас на шоу?
Tillen: Просто написать мне 

Tillen: Please contact me direct for bookings :)
Lanai: Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?
Lanai:  Чем еще вы хотели бы поделиться с нашими читателями?
Tillen: Я хотела бы напомнить, что вторая жизнь, какая бы она ни была увлекательная, всё-таки ВТОРАЯ. Это красивая, интересная, познавательная, но в первую очередь, ИГРА. Она создана для того, чтобы отдыхать и наслаждаться, так как трудностей нам всем хватает в нашей первой, реальной жизни. Не забывайте об этом, друзья! Буду рада видеть вас на своих шоу!

Tillen: I would like to remind you that Second Life, no matter how exciting it is, is still your SECOND life. This is a beautiful, interesting, informative, but first of all, GAME. It was created in order to relax and enjoy, since we all have enough difficulties in our first, real life. Don't forget about it, friends! I would be glad to see you at my shows!
Many thanks to you Lanai for the interview and to my dear friend Wolfie Moonshadow for this opportunity, help and support.

BAD 80s Club and 90s Music

The Industrial Music in Second Life- Piers Diesel Reporting...

Industrial music is an abrasive mix of rock and electronic sound.  It became popular in the 70’s with an experimental genre influenced by provocative and transgressive themes. Indie music as it is nicknamed is an underground movement found in Second Life clubs. If you’re not sure where to go in Second Life to listen then here is a list of some clubs which I feel you will enjoy not only for the music but also for the atmosphere too.

Twisted Dreams

Twisted Dreams is a club for all you twisted souls out there in SL. Featuring some of the best DJ's in SL, playing dubstep, industrial, EBM, Electro Swing.....and anything else the crowd wants to hear. They are all about the music and fun.  They do not play only industrial music so if you are looking for a club that plays just indie then maybe this isn’t the right club for you, however, if you’re looking for a club that spins industrial and other tunes then TP down and hang out.

At ALT7 you will find a wide variety of indie music as well as alternative tunes spun by DJs across the world. Nice club. It is small yet inviting.

Unknown Pleasures: Transmission Club
Here you will find indie to alternative music as well as other genre such as new wave and punk or as they call it post punk.  It is an underground effect club with a twist.

The Velvet
The Velvet has been rocking the grid with alternative and eclectic DJs since 2006. It is also home to some of the most passionate Djs in Second Life. They take pride in sharing their music collection and take music tunes seriously. The vibe here is always fun and inviting.

The Attic is well known for being a friendly entertainment spot on the grid. Regular scheduled DJs keep the stream hot with great indie/alternative style tunes. The club has plenty of activity with cool toys laying around for guests to enjoy, such as scooters wagons and even shopping carts.

The indie scene in Second Life has such a large number of members who love and appreciate industrial music. This genre has evolved throughout the years and as the demand gets bigger the more clubs will open.
