After a full weekend, I came home this evening to find a message from my friend Gigi Giles, telling me that her husband, awesome jazz trombonist J. Walter Hawkes, was playing in Second Life with his trio! I ‘ported over there as fast as the series of tubes could carry me to find J. Walter just finishing a set at Miso’s Hillside Tap in Parathrene. Appearing in-world as Blatmore Giles, J. Walter performed gamely despite some technical hiccups. He even let me sit in on the drums, which was a hoot.
In between sets, Milki Unknown played
his her wacky animations that had us in stitches. Awesome event!
More pics after the jump…
Blatmore’s the man!

Slap those skins!
