MetaMeets 2009 Amsterdam, was a European conference addressing the present and future of user-created virtual worlds such as Second Life, Active Worlds, OpenSim and more. Part of MetaMeets09 was a live concert at Molly Malones Pub in Amsterdam by Al Hofmann, Xander Nichting and JooZz. On Friday the 22nd of May they met for the first time in real life

This was a mixed reality event. The live show was simultaneously streamed into Second Life platform where about 100 people were gathered at the virtual Blarney Stone pub. Several other sites/platforms were broadcasting this unique event as well. At the end of the individual sets, JooZz (piano & bass), Willy Sparrow (midi guitar) and Xander Nichting (electric 6-string violin) jammed a little.
