New Year Eve Events in Second Life

Listening to music and having fun at a new years party

Happy New Year to everyone around the virtual worlds! I wanted to write a fast post on some of the special events in Second Life that I think would be fun to attend. There are many events happening today. I’ve found some of the best talent that I know of. There are lot of parties with DJ’s too but I’m looking for the live musicians mostly. Having someone play a live electric guitar or a piano just gives a virtual party that something special. So to anyone who isn’t attending a party in real life you can check out SL for some fun!

  • Tahoma – 12pm to 5pm SLT live music with a big ball drop at the end.
  • KaChing – open mic event starting at 1pm SLT. You can catch some great musicians playing sometimes here.
  • Noxious – A 10 hour party with live DJ’s starting at 2pm SLT with contests too.
  • Fire Island – Hollywood Glam New years eve party all day.
  • Clyde – Big event with live music starting at 6:30pm SLT.
  • Eclectic Dream – live music starting at 7pm SLT with some great musicians playing with a ball drop too.
  • Gannet Island – A magic and special effects show in SL. Something new I’ll probably try to attend starting at 8:30pm SLT.
  • Del Agua – “This Device” band plays at winterland at 10pm SLT with a live performer from japan after.

Christmas 2007 in Second Life

Spending time in Second Life for Christmas

It’s that time of year where we decorate our places for holidays. We also get in the spirit with new clothes for our avatar. This year I did some searches for Christmas places to go in SL. The interesting thing is the regular search for places didn’t give me the results I expected. Most of the places at the top were not about Christmas and even some had mature content. I even made sure it didn’t include mature content in the search and it still gave me them. Then I used the new search under the all tab and searched for Christmas stuff again. I was happy to see exactly the places I was looking for.

Merry Christmas from all of us at VTOR and have a great virtual holiday experience wherever you may go!

Here are some of the interesting places I found:
Using the new search function I found these:
  • Spring City – Really good place with plenty of Christmas items
  • Fortimus – Plenty of trees to get for your place
  • Buyeo – Another place with great Christmas stuff
Here are some Christmas live events for you to enjoy on Xmas eve day and Christmas day:
