Blog 091117 Kraftwork Jazz Club PocketGacha

Do you enjoy setting up scenes in Second Life and wonder where you can find a great little club set up?  You don’t have to wonder any longer as NODNOL Jameson of KraftWork brings the Shotgun Jazz Club to the grid via this month’s PocketGacha event!

This awesome gacha set has all you need to set up a little smoky club complete with the piano and drum kit on the stage.  There are two types of tables (simple and a bar table).  The bar tables come non-scripted or with standing animations… just like you were standing there listening to some fine jazz coming from the stage.  There are chairs for the regular tables and a stool that can be used on stage or with the bar tables too.  Two different sets of framed art focused on the jazz scene work great too.  NOD includes options for fans (rotating or static) and a cool tip stand (also scripted or not) that is actually a hat upside down on a stand.  Completing the set are ashtrays, a wonderful bass case and the sign shaped the same which are great at setting up the whole scene.

West of the Rain 072616

A new sim has been raised from the great Linden sea… “West of the Rain” has come online recently.  This gorgeous sim created by Oobleck (Allagash) and his partner NODNOL Jameson is loosely based upon the San Juan Islands in Washington state.  If you look up the real life location, you will definitely see the similarities.  The region has an adorable main street type area with hotel, cafes, book store, music store, general store, etc.  No detail forgotten, it is a place you can poke your head in to nearly every build and find something of interest.

Upon landing you find yourself on the ferry pier, from there, just walk through the shops and around the highway or venture off-road as well.  It’s a public and full region so bring your friends for an excursion. Stop in the coffee shop, visit the lighthouse, hang out around the lake, or sit on a beach… lots of nooks and places to relax.  Be sure to visit the ship yard and find The Athletic Club where you might find someone spinning tunes.

Oobleck and NODNOL created the experience because they love the area in Washington.  The description on the land is “A place for social, photography, ongoing events, music, and installations.”  And as you see here, it is very photogenic.

Be sure to visit soon… and if Oobs or Nod are around, make sure you wave and thank them for bringing such an awesome place to the grid!
