The Closing of Bay Vista (06.08.09)
Damn! Another good SL venue, locking the doors and throwing away the keys. Actually, in the case of Bay Vista, I think the massive time commitment by Charm March, Gretchen Capalini and their pals just got to be too much for them. They've been terrific supporters of live music in SL, so they deserve a hand for their great efforts.
They held their final shows today, and I was honored to be on the bill with some other really good SL musicians. My show went smoothly, and I felt it was pretty strong all the way through. Had a nice sized crowd -- audience numbers are rising lately at most of my shows, for some inexplicable reason. So today was cool, and I enjoyed myself, and despite it being the end of a fun place in SL, I think the people in the audience dug it too.
