New Venue Opening 5 May 2011

Rock U: The University of Rock & Metal officially opens its doors on Thursday, 5 May, 2011.

Ever since the Funeral Home closed, folks have been telling me how much they missed it, and that I should reopen. 10,000 clubs on the Grid, but none has the musical excellence & variety of FFH. I really wasn't looking to get back into the club business, they are a lot of work. A couple weeks ago, Injure Rogers got hold of me & Oz and proposed that the 3 of us get together & open a venue. We had a little Staff meeting about a week ago to talk about themes, etc. and came up with The University of Rock & Metal.

One of the saddest things I hear in SL clubs is the same, lameass corporate dreck that you can hear on any given FM station. Freakheim's motto, "It's All About The Music", is more than mere words, it's my mission in life. There is so much excellent music that most people never get the chance to hear. I opened Freakheim so I could play whatever I wanted, whatever I discovered that totally rocked, without worrying about playlists.

I'm not the only person who feels that way, and two people who have rocked with me from the beginning are Oz & Injure. We're out to make sure that the best music in the Galaxy gets heard...new bands, obscure bands, indies, SL artists, whatever....a lot of the old FFH DJ crew is joining us on Staff, so if you miss the musical excellence & variety from FFH, you'll get it at Rock U. To date we have Blitz Berliner, Guen, Martina, Bane, Twistmy & Vanguard joining Oz, Injure & myself.

Come on by this Thursday 5 May & check out the awesome build, (once again a scratch build by Kaedy), and rock with Oz from 2-4, me from 4-6 & Injure from 6-8. Poke the sign by the door for a group invite or ask one of us and we'll get ya enrolled!!
