BOSL Country Club Opening Feted with Black-Tie Southern Gothic Event
For Immediate Release
Aug. 16, 2010 (Second Life) — A black tie affair, entitled “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil,” will mark the grand opening of the BOSL Country Club on Saturday, Aug. 21, 3-5:30 p.m. SLT.. Southern Gothic will set the stage by reflecting the unique culture and mores of the American South famously exploited in the works of novelists such as Truman Capote, William Faulkner and Flannery O’Connor.
Southern Gothic is known for its damaged and delusional characters. Instead of perpetuating romanticized stereotypes of the Antebellum South, Southern Gothic literature brings the stock characters of melodrama and Gothic novels to a Southern context in order to make a point.
Tennessee William’s A Streetcar Named Desire reinvents the Southern belle as a pretentious, mentally unstable woman, and his Cat on a Hot Tin Roof portrays the favorite son of a Southern dynasty as a repressed homosexual whose alcoholism threatens his marriage.
“Just as in Southern Gothic literature, our special event plays to the plight of those who are ostracized or oppressed by traditional Southern culture,” said BOSL & CO executive Umberto Giano. “We encourage everyone attending this event to step into character and have fun with it … consider this a modern twist on the formal Southern Cotillion”
The theme will be underscored with music by pianist Bones Writer, the soulful vocals of Blue4u Nowicka, and the gReefers, playing and streaming live some of the great Southern rock hits of all time for the event.
“Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil” will occur on both the BOSL Country Club and Club Road sims. All music will be streamed into the BOSL Country Club sim and The Warehouse dance club’s Club Road sim, set up to handle the overflow.
The elegant setting of the BOSL Country Club was designed by Patch Thibaud on a full sim with a connecting dance club The Warehouse, also designed by Thibaud, on an adjacent full sim. The uniquely beautiful settings are perfect for weddings and events, and can be booked by contacting Giano in world.
