Viva Drama Libre!

On occasion, I leave the steampunk and Victorian themed sims and venture out into … well, maybe not quite the mainland, but other spaces.  And one of my favorites just celebrated its 2-year anniversary.  Congrats, guys!  Ya did done good.

Starting the Terrible Twos

Drama Libre is a dance club that has events twice a week … but with ever, ever shifting themes.  Every week, a new theme, a new build, new costumes, the works.  It’s the NPIRL aesthetic writ over and over.  The tunes are familiar – a combination of 80s, 90s and “aughts” music, mostly mainstream pop and rock.  The people are familiar, too.  DL draws a crowd of regulars who compete for best costume, make requests of the DJs and tease each other in and out of character with much cheezy humor [but in a PG fashion].  Good to its name, it is truly a place that’s largely free from drama …

The picture above (the best I have since my Photoshop skills are even less than rudimentary) was taken as DL was winding … it’s not unusual to have 30-40 avs, rocking out in synchronicity on the dance machine.  Lag can be an issue, but somehow, it never gets too bad and there are constant reminders to put away the AOs, bling, etc.  Saturdays 8 pm-1 am SLT, Thursdays 5-9 pm SLT.  Even if you aren’t that enamored of the silliness and commercial radio-friendly music, visit once during the week to see the builds.  All are good, some are extraordinary.  After a year of attending, I have to say that my absolute favorite so far has been DL’s version of the Louvre.  So astounding, I wanted to cry at the thought of all those gorgeous paintings and sculptures being recycled to free up prims for the next set.  It’s that good, and they do it on a weekly basis.
