Saturday May 23rd: Artie Birman’s exhibit Opening at The Dirty Grind IAC!

Safe Saturday everyone! The Dirty Grind IAC is proud to present a new artist to the Second Life grid: Artie Birman, travel photographer, with his SerendipArty RL Photo exposition!
Artie likes to see the real world through his camera lens and has travelled to many interesting places to record images across multiple genres. From landscape to architecture and people to abstract and often a mixture of all.
Join us in welcoming him to TDG family of artists and stay to enjoy the incredible lineup of musicians playing for the occasion!

3pm Benski Korhonen

Benski Korhonen is a singer/songwriter/piano and ukulele player who specializes in Ragtime versions of rock and pop songs. He can take a song by The Offspring or Nirvana and make is sound like it was composed by Scott Joplin. He can take a familiar Beatles tune like “Martha My Dear” and make it sound like an early 20th century obscurity that has only recently been unearthed by a studious musicologist. Benski has also written some really interesting and fun originals!

4pm Reno Jones

Reno Jones’ singing and guitar playing defies all expectations. “A voice like golf balls in a dryer”, and “You call this music?” are just a few of the things critics have said about Reno Jones’ musical stylings. Mixing it all up in a blender, Reno Jones covers songs from the 1920’s to the 2020’s and even originals; Reno adds his unique spin to all genres. As a studio musician and recording engineer for many decades, Reno has worked with some of the biggest names in the music industry.

5pm Ren Enberg & Quai Franklin

Sassy, soulful, irreverent, original, acoustic, and always a bit naughty: this is Ren Enberg in a nutshell. Her velvety voice and engaging personality highlight her singing/songwriting style: bluesy and smooth, with a rich and dynamic emotional range. With Quai Franklin as her amazing partner they are a duo with vocal and instrumental perfection combined in ways that will make your soul beg for more !

6pm Gweeb

Gweeb delivers an incredible show with each of his performances: peed panties aren’t unheard of at his gigs, and not much is taken seriously, aside from the delicious, rich sound of one boy and his guitar!

7pm The Vinnie Show

Singing current favourites to Classic Rock & Pop: those songs you grew up with and loved, songs you’ve newly discovered and some trending now… plus ORIGINALS – all acoustically, Vinnie pours his heart and soul into every song and Live performance… hoping to give something to each person in the audience. The Vinnie Show is all about having fun together!

8pm Senjata Witt

Steady as a heartbeat, that’s how her guitar style’s been described: rhythmic, percussive, and punctual, with a voice like rose petals steeped in bourbon. Folk, Blues, Traditional and original music, served up in her own special style!
