The Dirty Grind IAC Manager, signing off.

This will be my last post on this blog. It’s been a great experience and a pleasure to work with so many talented people.

Thank you, Ian  and Lisa , for this opportunity and for the many years you spent advocating for the arts in SL and creating this wonderful community.

If you have memories you want to share in form of pictures or posts, please feel free to send them to me ( ), post them to our Flickr group page or Facebook group – they are most welcome ❤

Stay safe everyone, and take care.

Wednesday October 26th Live at The Dirty Grind IAC!

Safe Wednesday everyone ♫  The Dirty Grind IAC invites you to the Hump Day live shows to help you get through the week with wonderful music!

3p Lluis Indigo

Lluis Garcia is a self taught musician who has been experimenting with music since he was 7 years old and performing since he was 14. Many know him as creator and builder in SL, but in 2017 he turned his creative focus to his real passion: music. Being from Barcelona, he loves to sing flamenco style called “rumba”, but also creates relaxing and deep sounds.

4p Dee Timeless

Dee’s guitar playing is second to none with vocals to match, providing a quality listening experience with a strong sound. He performs a broad range of covers, including fingerstyle guitar and singing in other languages, and likes to take listeners on a trip back to the past, and back again, without a seat belt. Aside from that it’s about fun! Dee LOVES to play music for people, and it is a great joy to reach a person’s soul, spirit, and mind through music.

5p Nigel Freeman

Nigel is a guitarist and singer: he plays acoustic covers of popular songs ranging from the 60’s to the 2000’s. Nigel is a seasoned RL performer who traveled with a band for 5 years full time before settling down; since then he performs as an acoustic solo act, akin to his SL act. His style encompasses a range of artists from the Beatles or other classic rock on to REM, U2 and Pearl Jam and maybe even an occasional interpretation of something like Rihanna or Maroon 5.

6p Effinjay

Jeremy Works (Frogg) was a vocal jazz minor at college, while Marc lePine (Jaycatt) studied piano for 14 years, but they only started playing music together after joining Second Life. Together , as singer/songwriters, they have produced a comprehensive range of heartfelt and memorable melodies and poetically lyrical songs. They have a loyal listener base, and entertain and delight the live music lovers of Second Life.
