And so, we survived opening weekend. Which went pretty smoothly, all things considered. I do know we were packed. I would log in to 40+ on the sim for hours and hours. Nothing seems to have exploded, so I’ll take it.
By the way, Eclectica is now in (Welcome back, Tiffy!) so everyone can pile into her store and see what she’s got in there. She’s over in the creepy corner of the sim. (seriously. It’s by far creepier than the others. Mind the zombies, by the way.)
Speaking of which, everyone should be made aware that a LOT of stores have done staggered releases for this event, and a whole new wave of releases from many stores will arrive on World Goth Day (Friday, May 22.) Quite a lot of stores are planning releases ON World Goth Day itself, so be prepared to come back and check it all out.
Also on World Goth Day, we will have live DJs from 6am-midnight Pacific time. I’ll get a poster sorted out today, but the lineup is as follows:
6-8am: Cruel Britannia
8-10am: Aribeth Zelin
10am-noon: BCreative Wilde
noon-2pm: Angelica Leiner
2-4pm: Alisa Perne
4-6pm: Pie Zipper
6-8pm: Rydia Suicide
8-10pm: Lokii Violet
Again, poster to follow later tonightish, I need to make that happen.
Another announcement: On Tuesday, May 26th at 8pm (pre-empting Pie’s usual set) You Shriek will be live at the Gothika Mobile Unit. Razi will be doing a live set. This is not a cover band, it’s not a tribute band- it’s actually You Shriek – the real deal, and only at WGF.
On May 29th (time TBA) Jairus Khan of Ad.Ver.Sary, Antigen Shift (and sometimes even iVardensphere) will be back at the mobile unit for a DJ set. If you caught him last year you’ll know he DJed for 3 hours and everyone had a blast, so be ready to come on back and say hi to him again.
I’m working on a couple other music events. More info as I have it, but I’m trying.
