John Holt on Saturday - Beach Party!



This Saturday it's John Holt in Concert, Beach Party.

Born in Kingston Jamaica in 1947, Holt was one of the biggest Reggae stars by the early 1970s.

Four years ahead of Bob Marley, in 1973 John Holt's Album 1,000 Volts of Holt became the first Reggae Album to break into the UK's Top Ten, spawning Top Ten singles entries for Help Me Make It Through The Night and Touch Me In The Morning.

Although subsequently eclipsed by Marley, John Holt is regarded as the first mainstream artist to bring Reggae music to the masses and he released 56 follow up Albums and toured regularly all over the world until his untimely death in October 2014, aged 67.

Join us on Saturday for original reggae with John Holt.



Party starts at 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the concert an hour later at 1pm SL.

London (City) Riots remembered 5 years on



Five years ago, London rioted, causing the single biggest loss of property and possessions since the blitz.  For those of us living close to the capital it was three nights of terror, which went as quickly as it came.   Here is a vintage (and somewhat clonky) video from 2011 in London City, created at the same time surrounding areas were under siege by hooligans looting and burning towns.  We clearly remember turning our lights out and staying logged into Second Life and other social media as trouble crept towards our RL district.
