We're staging a [PIAS] benefit concert and we're doing it online via the virtual world platform, Second Life!
Saturday 24 September 2011. 5 pm - 5 am BST at The Idle Rogue: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Idle%20Rogue/128/128/0/
Line-up and synopses:
Fink: interview and band-selected excerpts from their live show that night in Nottingham.
DJ Vadim: dj set from the man who's played virtually everywhere, now playing virtually.
Neotropic: screenings of the new short films from Equestrienne Remixes and artist's talk by Riz Maslen (aka Neotropic.)
IconAclass (aka Will Brooks of Dälek): interview and video premiere
Fuck the Facts: streamed-in live performance from their show in Quebec City, Canada
Also featuring top performers from the thriving Second Life music community:
Liz Aday: "magnetizing, powerful vocals" and songs to match
SlimGirlFat aka Slim Warrior: dj set of "timeless electronica"
Dexter Morph: adventures in Singularity-inspired future rock
MommaLuv Skytower: avant-fabulous peace, love and mayhem
G.Bevin: affecting power-folk and Eigenharp magic
As a virtual world environment, Second Life is a next-level social network: users not only form community groups but they also live, work, and play “in-world”. Second Life is a recognized destination for independent musicians and their fans to interact with one another in a context that a traditional concert venue cannot match. Next weekend, slip into an avatar and show your love for independent music!
