Partystrands - a new SMS controlled collaborative social jukebox is coming to a bar near you! The nearest I've expereinced to this is the iPod DJ parties I've been to in Manchester, Liverpool and in Amsterdam, they seemed to work, or at least it was nice to have a go at DJing with your iPod; the idea you are in control is rather powerful afterall. And we are all used to the traditional jukebox, right? Partystrands will let you and your friends play music from your playlist in a bar via your mobile. It comes packed with all the social media tools you'd expect - voting to promote your track etc. It seems you pay by SMS (and I'm not sure how much it costs) but this could be prohibitive. So can 'PartyStrands' be the next big hit in bars and clubs? Maybe, we'll see when PartyStrands (by Mystrands) launches on September 14th. To me it seems like one of those ideas where you just think 'surely no one will pay for this' - but maybe nowadays there are enough kids out there who just wanna take their music with them (and make everyone else listen to it)!
