A few nights ago, PIER, a nightclub that has been closed but not gone for over two years, came back to life for one night. It started like this, Carys Doolittle (the owner) sent out a single word over the PIER group and it went something like this, “Wow.” And as luck would have it, I was the first person to respond with my own, “Wow” and then others joined in and then we started showing up at the old club still the same as it was years ago.
PIER is the first nightclub I went to in Second Life, back in 2007, where I felt really welcome. In fact, the peeps at PIER taught me the meaning of Second Life hospitality, a lesson I carried with me as I became a hostess.
Things weren’t always great, there was a period where DJ’s moved further and further away from rock. And then began digging deeper and deeper into hip hop, especially the brand I refer to as filth-mouthed hip hop (that’s the polite term).
But PIER always that special feel, out there over the sea and if you had enough sense to set your Sun to sunset or night, there was magic. I’m not sure what the future holds for PIER, but I think it would great to come back here.
