SL – Thaylon Singh Debut @ Club Moonlight Riviera

Two turn tables...

Thaylon Singh debuts in Second Life 10/19/07

Prior to the show, I bought a new guitar and some pet squirrels. I call this my Bono pose. Where the squirrels have no name….

Thaylon Singh performed his first offical SL concert at Club Moonlight Riviera. In the RL, the studio looked something like a cross between a Radio Shack and an ISP.

Thaylon featured a combination of both acoustic and electric material, mostly original, starting with some of his current studio experiments and a segue into “Ones and Zeroes”, a song from 1997’s Homegrown Music recording (re-recorded a few years later for Chaos Rise Up). The song may be 10 years old, but it seems even more appropriate now. Then Thaylon moved into some more introspective solo stuff in the blues and roots vein, covering songs from Jeremy dePrisco’s Catch the Squirrel. He closed with more experimental keyboard material.

Special thanks to Phorkyad, Megh, Serene, Circe and Steorling for inviting and encouraging me. Looking forward to more performances. Like any gig, we had some technical difficulty. The audio stream was a bit hard to get started (despite having tested it earlier) and then there were some volume issues. We kept on trucking thoug, and while Thaylon started about 15 minutes late, all seemed to have a good time.

With my tips I was able to buy some new hair, which exposed my outrageous Frankenstein forehead. UUGGGHH!!
