Today I got a heads up from Yellow Arrow about their latest project and it has all the ingredients for something lovely; SMS, iPods, videos, and punk. Washington DC was home to a growing hardcore scene in the late seventies and now you can explore its hardcore heritage through SMS and iPod video tours; "Capitol of Punk".
For an alternative view of the city; more punk than presidential, you can SMS a code from your mobile to receive a txt walk guiding you around the 'harDCore' hotspots of DC. Txt not hardcore enough for you? Well, watch and listen to video documentaries on your iPod as you wander the streets.
I like it because you get content via the simplicity of SMS, and you get that super-immersion feel of the gallery guided history tour. I intend to visit DC later this year and what better way to explore than with the 'Capitol of Punk' project?
