2013 – The February Playlists

February is a strange month.  It’s missing a couple of days, has a Hallmark holiday attached, and it really can’t make up its mind to be Winter or Spring — at least on the West Coast.  Of course, the weather is moot point in Second Life, unless it knocks you offline somehow.

I’ve been lucky.  My connection is better than ever.  I have also had a couple of very nice sets at The Village of Nyght over the past couple of days.  I know I’ve been remiss in adding playlists to this blog for the past month or so, and I do apologize.  Sometimes things get in the way, like that pesky real life thing, or that pesky SAM decided to bork thing.  Either way, January just didn’t happen, and half of February was pretty difficult to muster.

Never fear, because I have two playlists for what amounts to a back to back party situation.  The first occurred on February 14 which, according to the Village calendar, was Single Awareness Day.  The second was one of the infamous Adult parties with a lingerie theme.

Single Awareness Day started off with some rather anti-Valentine type songs and progressed from there.  It was a smallish crowd, having done this on a notoriously dead Thursday night.  The crowd may have been small, but it was energetic and talkative.  That makes up for a lot in my book.

The next party occurred on Saturday, February 16, and had a very, very big crowd.  I’m not really sure where they all came from, but they were all having fun, and got an idea of what they wanted to hear early on.  Normally, I don’t play a lot of “normal” 80s stuff, but it all kind of came together that way anyway.  I played a few songs about 45 minutes before the party, but for the sake of being concise and all, I’m not including those.  After all, a spinmaster needs to make sure the stream is working before the party…February 16, 2013

February 23, 2013
I’m getting lazy about posting these things right after the gig happens.
This set was all about Chinese New Year and the Year of the Snake.  At least that was the plan.  What actually happened was a veritable ton of actual Gothic music from a bygone era, plus a few extras and odds and ends.  Apart from the one oddball bluesy Delta Rae request, things sort of flowed together, rather like Theraputty on a hot day.
