Today we are welcoming back David Perdu in the SL music scene. After several years of absense he will do his comebackshow today, at AdMiReat 9 AM slt! His manager, Twinky Waffle, is a good friend of mine and she showed me the YouTubepage of David Perdu. And wow, that music is really great. Lets first get some information about him! I will definetely be at this show today and I hope you are all joining me there.



Hailing from North Wales, David Perdu (RL- David Burton) is an accomplished songwriter and instrumentalist who has composed many thought-provoking and foot tapping songs. He has performed live both solo and with  his band up and down the country for over ten years supporting fine artists such as Eric Roche and also playing backup guitar for numerous talented singer songwriters including a stint with Duffy. Over this time he has honed a unique fusion of jazz, rock and folk known as fraz. His virtuoso guitar skills leave audiences open-mouthed as he performs his own compositions whilst also playing tribute to the work of acoustic guitar heroes such as John Renbourn, Bert Jansch and Pierre Bensusan.



While talking to Twinky to get a bit more information about David, she tells me back in the days she already was his manager. And she is thrilled he asked her again to manage him. His fangroup is still the same, and Twinky even saved his subscriber all those years. A brand new board is made by Twinky, a couple of new promopics and together with some friends (Thank you Obbe) they also got him to change into a mesh avatar. So a fresh start for this great performer but they hope all of his fans of years ago will find their way back to his shows. Although today is the official comebackshow, they already booked a few more venues for David to play. So do check up his calendar.

If you want to know more about David, or want to book him for your own venue, make sure you contact his manager Twinky Waffle.



As mentioned, he will play today at AdMiRe, a venue where Twinky hosts several shows every Tuesday. David will be the first of a 4 hour line-up today, so when you get there, you'll have no reason to leave. :)

When you are familiar in the live music scene, you probably know Henrietta! She is the trusty sidekick of Live Musician Mike Carnell. She always is there to support him, always there to help him and she has made many friends in the years.

Henrietta is on a strict diet of apples, carrots and probably nibbling on Mike his clothing every now and then.

Both in SL and Rl she has many friends in any form! Now you must be wondering, who this magical  Henrietta is?

Well, she is a GOAT! She loves carrots. SO if you ran into her at one of Mike his shows, make sure to feed her some carrots!
If you have never met Henrietta, please go to one of Mike00 Carnell his shows and you will be able to meet and greet with the one and only Henrietta


Today it was really looking for music that would inspire me to write. When I landed at Surfside, within a few seconds I knew I had found my inspiration for today.

The soothing notes of a good acoustic guitar with a really warm voice warmed me up instantly. You can really hear he just loves to play music. A man and his guitar! Really beautiful.

Let's see if we can find a bit more information about Wes.

Playing his well-strummed guitar, Wes will present many great songs of love and the different journeys that each of us are on in our own lives which will embrace you in a warm and cozy atmosphere with gentle smiles and happy memories.
A guitarist singer songwriter born out West, raised in the East , returned to his roots in the Rocky Mountains, Wes will entertain you with acoustic covers from the 70's and later and  his own original sappy love songs.

I haven't been able to find a calendar so you have to look in Events to find him, or join his group "Wes from the West".

He does have a soundcloud, so click HEREto go to his Soundcloud.



Wes is playing at a well-known venue called Surfside Hideaway which is owned by deѕιrαe вeαυмoɴт.

Surfside is a beautiful venue (established January 2009) for music but as the name might do expect, you also can surf there. And if you want to go surfing directly after waking up, they have rentals too! Definetely worth checking out!

As everyone could have seen and read, I love to blog here. Virtual Nomad and I sometimes talk on the message-system here in AvatarBook. I know he is a busy man and he regretted he had to let go of his office in-world.

With a little help of my friends we have a small parcel available to make a little office. Now, an empty parcel is not what we like so with a little more help of my friends I was able to get everything setup.

Thanks to Twinky Waffle for sponsoring us her little parcel. It is a very nice place.
Thanks to Aerielle Eolande for helping me with most of the scripted things.



What can you all do in the office you ask?
How about picking up a 1 LI Informationboard to rezz at your own place, so more people will join us at Avatarbook. Do let me/us know when you have rezzed an informationboard, I am curious to see your place!

Also you can get information about Avatarbook and join the Avatarbook in-worldgroup.

But you also can just relax at our terrace, talk to others, relax and enjoy a beautiful sunrise.



I am sure you want to come and see.

Now all I can hope is that Virtual likes it.


Feel free to come and take a look with this SLURL


Please do know, I am a blogger. I am not technical support or member of the AvatarBook team. I just want to help a bit to get AvatarBook more populair!


It has been a while since my last blog, but that doesn't mean I lost my drive to write. Now with the new blogging platform here on AvatarBook it is time to pick up writing again. And as always, I like to write about a lot of things but one of my favorite things to write about is LIVE music.
Today I went to Lexus Melodie. I have heard her several times and I always like to keep listening to her. She has a unique voice which I highly appreciate. If you have a chance to listen to one of her shows, I recommend you do. You won't be dissapointed.


So let's see if we can catch some info about this amazing talent.


"Lexus Melodie is a british singer-songwriter whose performances combine great music, warmth of personality and a sense of humour in equal quantities. She has a voice that can melt hearts but never takes herself too seriously. Lexus's original songs range from haunting tales of loss and love to ascerbic wit. Her list of covers is eclectic, with a slight bias towards the best of british music from the Beatles to Kirsty MacColl to the Arctic Monkeys.Lexus has performed her originals live in and around London. No stranger to the SL music scene, Lexus has returned after a break with some great new originals and covers to delight new and existing fans alike."





Lexus is playing today at the Mumbling Goat Pub, a venue "dedicated to the songwriters and music creators who enrich our lives,  all worlds".
Being here it feels a bit like being home but also being on vacation. A beuatiful cozy indoor venue at a small harbor where the pelicans are not afraid of the guests.


"A community area for Artists and Musicians, Boasting Art Gallery, Movie Theater,  and Pub, opening up to a vast sea of Fables. Weekly Shows and movies. "



The owners, Lazarus Doghouse and Meg Madrigal make sure everyone is feeling welcome. They have a lot of good live music lined up, so worth coming over, enjoying music or dreaming away in the harbor during a beautiful sunset.




It has been a while since I heard Mike, but I always enjoy his phenomenal guitar play. He can play the most difficult parts and it sounds like it doesn't cost him any effort. He is really that good! You really should see if you can hear him, he plays a lot in SL, so let's find the info I know you want:

"Mike Carnell is one Amazing Guitarist/ Song writing/ Goat loving FUN fun FUN Show LIVE from Hamburg, Germany, playing classic and soft rock as well as originals !!!Clapton, Pink Floyd, Jack Johnson, Paolo Nutini, Mumford and Sons, Jason Mraz, Joshua Radin, Mando Diao, The Killers and many more.

Mike00 Carnell on his fantastic Fender Strat USA deluxe pulling out all your favorite tunes like Eric Clapton, some funky songs, a few slow instrumental softrock songs and some other rock songs."


Today he is playing at the venue of a very dear friend of mine. The place is called Helle's Angels, now I want to say how great it looks, but a big part of it is made by me, so let's not get arrogant here, I'd rather want you to check it out yourself. The owner, Helle Mensing is one of my close friends. Please go check out the shows at Helle's Angels.


Hope to see you there soon!

I just got invited by a friend of mine to come and see their dance-show. I have never been to a dance-show in SL so I will let them surprise me. I arrive early as suggested by my friend. Also got the request to scripts to a minimum if possible to keep the dances as smooth as possible.

As I am early I am bold and choose a front row seat. It is not very corwded yet, but I am 45 minutes early. From the view people that are here I am getting really curious:

"You are in for a treat, they're doing all the fantasy themes tonight"

"There are a few dance groups in SL but none like debauche"

"They do 2 types of show, amazing and feckin fantastic"

"I hope you like bombastic dances and tear jerkers... they have both in the program this evening..."

So, honestly I can't wait. But as I have to wait, I better see if we can find some information to share with you. Let's start with some information about this dance-group:


Debauche is a new dance group in Second Life whose aim is to dance, to enjoy it, to dance some more. All members of the group love to dance and love to perform. They have all come together to dance together for your enjoyment. The idea is to put on exciting, beautiful and sexy stage shows to be enjoyed by all. If you want to book Debauche to perform at your venue, write to...

Laura Demonista or Lanisonia Resident.

Let us spread a little debauchery at your place. You know you want us.The Debauche Girls

Wow, found a lot of information there for you, don't you think? I am pretty sure you are getting intriqued as I am, so let's also find some information about the theatre it is all happening.

"Babylon Berlin Performance Venue. 

From Burlesque to Bauhaus. A Film Noir avant garde venue set in 1930s Weimar Republic, Babylon Berlin is a stylish, moody, cabaret setting, evoking dark mysteries, seduction and subterfuge. Uniting sex, crime, fashion and erotic militarism in an dark fashion. A place for the innocent and wicked to mingle and flirt.

People have asked me if I know if being a manager in SL is a difficult job and if it pay good?. I can't say simply yes or no to that question. There are many different kind of managers in SL and it also is dependable on your own skills. I have worked as venue manager and artist manager and some of my closest friends are too.

Above all, you need to be very well organized and always do things right away. Don't let it sit or wait till later, you will forget it.
If you want to be the manager of a live artist you need to have the skills of good communication as you will have to deal with venue-owners and their staff, but also with your artist so you don't book a show when your artist is out for RL. You also need be accurate with the schedules, be precise with confirming and make sure all the information about your artist is up-to-date. As a manager you need to also promote the shows of your artist. Make sure your artist can put his focus on the show.

If you want to become a clubmanager you need to have a good network of artists, know who their manager are and make sure you don't double-book slots. So also here you need to be fast with updating the calendar and make sure bookings are confirmed. You also need to make sure each show has a host to it and that your host has the good information. Make sure your hosts are trained so they do as much promoting as they can, but also are reliable and always on time. This kind of job may ask a nice amount of your time as you have to always make sure your artists but also your hosts are happy.

There also are sub-manager jobs. Usually managers that have 1 specific task. Think of booking-manager, a manager at a club that only takes care of bookings. Or are rent-manager, who only has to make sure shops get rented. One of my favorite ones: Floating managers, meaning more than 1 manager so there is almost always one of them online, which is interesting but you have to do a lot of communications. Look around, there are more types of managers but you can also become a host. We need more good hosts.

How is the paying? That depends who you work for. Sometimes you get a percentage of the income, other times you get a fixed amount per week and sometimes you even can clock in and clock out and get paid by the hour.

In the spotlight is a new category I will create where I will litterally put stores or products created by friends in the spotlight. Today I want to put in the spotlight Chic Wedding Gowns and Chic Classy Fashion.

Created by MAHPIYA (aoife.modan), a lovely and very kind dutch designer. She is putting a lot of time and effort in her designs, and that shows. Her designs are unique, fitting for most of the known mesh avatars and they just look so nice. 

First we go to see the wedding gowns.

Whether you go for a sexy wedding gown, more of a hippie style or for something very rare, you can find it here! And the dress wouldn't be complete without the accessoires which are also available in the store. 

"For those who wish a memorable wedding gown without the memorable price. Come look at the beauitiful gowns that you will love."

Chic Classy Fashion]

She also has a store at another place, where she sells all kind of other fashion. Formal dresses, casuals and even bikini's and lingerie.  And even a few items for men! And also these are all made with the same passion and eye for details. 

"Chic is made because of the love for designing, from templates to textures (accept Mesh). I try to make as much as possible  and as chic as I can . I keep the prices low ... try a freebee, even those are made with love. The  members are friends and friendly, honest and funny, we are horrifide by drama!  Yuck much, so keep that away. If you have requests send a notecard to me. Huggg Aoife"

I hope you will all go and check out her stores, join her group and show off her designs!
