Satin Tigress transgender neo-burlesque club and Catzi Radio — a cyberpunk <3 match

by Timothy Morpork

The MMORPG Matrix Online closed on July 31, 2009.  Though primarily a combat game,players  developed into a community that socialized in cyberpunkthemed clubs within the game.  With their virtual world closed, theyneed a new virtual space in which to gather. Second Life, ofcourse, is a perfect place for the former Matrix Online players to makea new home.

The Matrix

 The Satin Tigress, a Second Life neo-burlesque clubfeaturing female and transgender performers, is welcoming Matrix Online players with aMatrix-themed party this Wednesday, August 5, 2009. 

The Satin Tigress will host a live radio show by Catzi Pearlof Catzi Radio, which was the most popular radio station of the MatrixOnline.  With the Matrix Online gone, Catzi hopes that Catzi Radio willbecome a mainstay of Second Life, and she is bringing her hugefollowing to the Satin Tigress.

CatziRadio and the Satin Tigress are a natural fit.  Catzi Radio is morethan a music stream; it is a community project featuring creative DJsputting on true shows to complement the virtual action.  The SatinTigress is more than just a strip club; it is a counter-culturecollective of free-spirits and creative dancers, bringing theneo-burlesque movement to Second Life.

Catzi Radio and the SatinTigress have already teamed for several events.  A Las Vegas Nightfeatured a mix of Sin City's best lounge music and comedy while dancersdebuted an tiger-taming event that went excitingly awry.  Cops 'N'Robbers night included hilarious arrest stories and the dancers'dramatic presentation of the Case of the Missing Jewel – you'llnever guess where it was found.

Of course, not all former Matrix Online playerswill find transgender neo-burlesque to their tastes.  But even if theyeventually find other diversions within Second Life, Wednesday's eventwill at least make them feel welcome to Second Life and give them agreat chance to meet new friends and get comfortable with Second Life.

The Satin Tigress's Matrix Event is Wednesday, August 5, 2009 from 8 – 10 pm SLT.  The slurl is:  Yes, it is a Mature event.  To find out more about Catzi Radio, contact Catzi Pearl in Second Life.

    “…and she is bringing her huge following to the Satin Tigress.”

    And me suspects they’ll turn right around and leave when the sim that place is located in crawls on it’s knees bringing the “world” for all in it to the exciting blazing speed of molasses.

    Didn’t even know there *was* a Matrix Online. I guess in that case, SL sim can hold all 20 migrating players?

    Were sorry, after receiving a letter from Warner Brothers Studios, we at Linden Lab cannot accept any refugees from The Matrix TM.

    Please turn in your latex outfits at the door, and refrain from selling any Matrix TM unlicensed merchandise to pay for your overpriced sim’s tier. But please do keep paying us to “create your world” in.

    Wow, I thought the matrix online died YEARS ago. Hell, I thought after the abysmal failure which was the two hastily made sequels was the end of anything matrix related.

    Also, what a fine way to greet them into SL, with shemales.
