Dexter Ihnen

I love live music in Second Life. There’s an indescribable energy you can feel when you’re at the concert. By no means is it the same as actually going to a real life concert, but it’s close. There’s some kind of feeling you get when you gather with a group of people to hear an artist sing their heart out.

Yesterday I went to a concert put on by Dexter Ihnen at The Bay in the Kaiya Islands sim. He’s one of my favorite Second Life artist. He’s an Australian that sings in a funky Rock’n Roll style that I really enjoy. Yesterday he sang some original songs and some covers of songs by John Mayer, Marvin Gay, and Stevie Wonder just to name a few.

There’s some intangible pureness about a musician that sings and plays guitar without a backup band. It feels more intimate somehow.

Unfortunately I missed the last 20 minutes of the concert. My crazy uncle called me wanting to know my address. I have the strange feeling he’s going to send me something ridiculous, like a stuffed squirrel or something else equally silly. That reminds me, I need to cuss out my parents for giving him my cell number.

Did I mention he’s crazy?

Oops, went off on a tangent there… sorry about that!

Dexter put on a fun show and there was a good crowd there, 25 to 35 people at any given time. If you’re looking for live music, check out Dexter. You’ll be glad you did.
