Everything worked smoothe and all 5 artists did awesome live gigs. All streams were set perfect and even though a very tight schedule no delay at all.
The local counter read 175 unique guests this morning and only counts in a close range to landing point which means all peeps who TP’d direct to audience area by friends excluded. So more likely about 250 peeps came and went throughout the 4-5 hour event. Good numbers!
Read reports recently claiming live gigs in SL has a downturn at the moment – well once again what to say? Pop Art Lab don’t see this downturn infact we see the opposite… a fast growing group and a fully packed sim!

Pop Art Lab set up the first live event after the C5 sim upgrade. We are currently working out the programme. However confirmed by now is it Max Morgan will be headlining. To those who still haven’t heard of Max plz check out his site.
His recently released CD Interrupting the Silence got a nice review at Pop Matters (the acclaimed indie E-mag):
Pop Matters 6/10
Liverpudlian Max Morgan has a rather light, airy voice on the opening number “Loneliest Man in the World”, a rather strong but unadventurous pop tune in the vein of the Fray with a pinch of Snow Patrol on top. However, what makes it stand out is the melody, something that seems to shine and stick a la Crowded House. This definitely applies when “Secret” comes along during the latter half. And while some of these tunes have had prime television airings (Grey’s Anatomy), Morgan creates a rather cohesive, above average affair on the backs of sweet pop tunes like “Sold Out to the Scene”, which recalls the Calling and a rather rowdier Jonas Brothers (in this case, the latter being a good thing). However, the standard ballads “Wait for Me” and “Trouble” are something you really don’t need to wait for, as it’s all be done here before. Fortunately, the Oasis-like “Feel (Whoever You Are)” and the up-tempo, edgy, Pete Yorn-ish “Suffer” suffer from nothing but great hooks and great pipes from Morgan. Perhaps the real surprise or dark horse of the 11 tracks is the McCartney-ish piano nugget “Nobody’s Coming to My Rescue” which is a gentle, pensive and pretty effort.
Check back next coming days for further info.

Mankind Tracer recently visited PAL and played a fantastic 2 hour live set.
This time we set up TV recording incl. 30 min. interview.
Pop Vox is intended for bringing in the RL scene but obviously Mankind has shown incredible talent by intensive touring throughout the grid last 2 years and reached one of the largest fan bases inworld… so let’s twist!
We recently had tight schedules in Pop Vox featuring both Max Morgan and Baby “Lorenzo” Woodrose within 2 days and we look so much forward to present Mankind to improve concept on these groundbreaking shows!
More info comin up asap!
It was a true pleasure to host Max Morgans SL premiere last night. Despite some 15 mins delay on Pop Vox interview everything worked smoothe.
Max did a kewl interview and thumbs up and great respect! He is certainly an artist we can expect to hear much more from in the future. Watch it here!
I had the same feeling as when I once heard Jeff Buckley live in the start 90s. I really dig Max’ coming CD but live and solo he sounded so rockin’ I have not seen alike at those 100+ concerts I’ve been to in SL!
