Arcadia Asylum’s Loli Caverns

On August ! from 7 PM PDT (SL time) and August 12 PM PDT (SL time), an exhibition of a collection some of Arcadia’s rarest finds was opened with live music, a dance in a themed dance club that she designed, surrounded by objects made for such an occasion. Shortly after entering the caverns, attendees were given clothing that she made for these fun evenings. The cavern tunnels are rather lengthy; the dance floor is only part way into it. You’ll find a side of her humor you haven’t seen before, more of her disdain for the banal around SL, and her poking fun at the commonplace in general.  The caverns cave into the sewers as she designed them to do in the second Slum City a brief few weeks before Slum City was destroyed.

There was live music for both hours. Nad Gough opened on Friday night, and Norris Shepherd played the debut on Saturday afternoon/ evening. All aspects of the event were 100% free, of course. A box of all Arcadia’s objects from Loli caverns are at the end of the tunnel, in a room, and it is free. The box contains both objects, and textures. The event only these two days, but the exhibition will remain open through October. Many thanks go to my friends Dammit Dawg who did much to help organize the music, and Muttenchops Chaplin who did a lot of the cavern decoration. Mutten was the source of the Arcadia lost Loli Caverns box.  If you ever need entertainers, either of these two come highly recommended.

A hobo volunteered to video the events, and sounded very excited to do the job, but he was a no-show without explanation (even after I wrote to him on the day of the event), and I had no time to find anyone else to carry the ball that he dropped and walked away from; it was a major disappointment. We have no video. I did take these images, however. I wish I knew more about Sl photography. I’ve seen our no-show’s work; he’s really very good.
