An Important Note About This Week, Our Next Special Event and Reshare of an awesome blog post by Sinful Pixels!

While reading this post, I recommend you listen to Emotional Vampire by The Dirty Grind IAC’s Shannon Oherlihy/McMahon.



The single may be purchased from the links below and will also be on her upcoming album! 



Hey everyone!

After living with Brian in both first life and second life for the past few years, I’m still alive and I have decided to let him have his own space in my studio.  After all [Supposedly], one cannot live out of boxes forever! 
You may have noticed Ian and I have been a bit distracted this past week and we will be distractederererer…er…ererer…er for a tad longer. Therefore, Ian and I will be taking the next week off to work on the redesign of our first life space and the reclaiming my art studio for its intended purpose.
We will be back with announcing our field trips in-world as well as posting on this blog with in-house shows and field trips in approximately one week.
Our artists and their management are invited to post and send notices of their field trips in our in-world group, The Dirty Grind. As always, we also encourage them to post events on our Facebook page, facebook.com/TheDirtyGrindSL/.
Additionally, we invite other group members to feel free to post shows by our family of artists in our group to help spread the word! 
We will still be offering our in-house shows during the week as long as we are able to have coverage from SapphFire and/or Tara. Artists and their teams will, of course, be notified of any changes to the schedule.
As always, we are short on host coverage. If you are interested in joining TDG family abd are reliable, please contact SapphFire, Ian or I.
Thank you all so very for your love and support! We love you!
Warmly,
Lisa
