We have discussed:
– How Second Life residents choose music events to go to;
– What purpose Second Life clubs serve/How Second Life residents do their clubbing;
– The importance of club patrons/groupies (and how to make new club members feel welcomed!);
– How the presence of amateur musicians in Second Life affects the music entertainment scene;
– What to keep in mind when one opens a new club;
– How profitable club business/music entertainment industry actually is, who has to pick the bill, and what to do about it;
– And many more!
This Sunday has been truly one of a kind. Thank you very much, guests and audience, for all your input, your participation, for letting us into the insights of your profession, how you feel about it, what the issues of the clubbing and music entertainment industries are and how they are to be dealt with – this has been a very interesting and informative discussion. And, of course, thank you very much, Nick and Abbyrose (Street Wear Live production team), for making it possible! In a way, it was an experiment, and I cannot thank you enough for participating in it. For the first episode, it went very well!
We went completely off the script in this discussion, but that was the best thing that could happen – for it has allowed the discussion to get less formal, which, in turn, has allowed the topic to thrive freely. As every experiment ever, it obviously was not all the way perfect, but we will be playing with the format and getting better with each episode – I already am thinking of ways to establish better connection between the audience and the voice panel, and other ideas to improve everybody’s experience.
At the moment, Street Wear Live is planning to make The Grid, Unraveled a bi-monthly show (new discussion every two weeks on Sundays), so take your time in watching this episode, and the next discussion will take place and be filmed on Sunday, September 25th. Keep an eye in Events for it, or better yet, join the Street Wear Live in-world subscriber (located here) to be notified about all the upcoming Street Wear Live shows!
Your feedback is greatly appreciated, so whether you were in the voice panel, in the audience, or watched the episode on YouTube, message me, K.T. Burnett (kayt), in-world with your opinion.
And join us for the next show. This is the place where you will be heard!
