Like A Walking Tour With Cell Phones

I have been a fan of Yellow Arrow for a while. For those of you who don't know, Yellow Arrow is a form of electronic graffiti. Basically, you have these yellow arrow stickers that have serial numbers on them. If you are posting one (anywhere), you text the serial number to Yellow Arrow and add your own little message. Then, when someone stops by your yellow arrow, they can text that same serial number and Yellow Arrow will text back your message.

So now, they have taken it one step further. They have created a walking tour of DC's Punk Scene. The website has short documentaries for each stop on the tour. The docs feature Ian Mackaye (Fugazi), Dante Ferrando (Owner of the Black Cat), Marion Barry, Ian Svenonius (Nation of Ulysses) and many other people who all witnessed the changes in DC during the late 70's and early to late 80's. The films also stress how much the city has changed over the years and without saying it explicitly, talk about DC's urban gentrification. As Ian Mackaye says at one point: "Punk rockers are the Storm Troopers for gentrification."

This is possibly one of the coolest things I have ever seen. If y'all are into punk or the DC music scene period, you should check this out.

I Can't Believe This Shi...

...this is just getting ridiculous.

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have yet to show their baby daughter off in public, but eager fans were given an unusual preview with the chance to see a bronze cast depicting her first solid stool.

The scatological sculpture -- more doodoo than Dada -- is purportedly cast from 19-week old Suri's first bowel movement and will be shown at the Capla Kesting gallery in Brooklyn, New York, before being auctioned off for charity.

Now, the guy who made this is none other than Daniel Edwards, the same guy who made the sculpture of Britney Spears giving birth

If you ask me, that poop looks a bit too big for a small baby to have made. I don't know...thoughts?

How Did I Not Know About This??

So last week, Justin Timberlake performed at the 9:30 Club? And he did a Go-Go version of "SexyBack"? WHAT? And why did I have to hear about it from The Fader?

If anyone knows where there is a recording of said track, I would greatly appreciate it.

You can read a review of the show at Metro Distortion

I'm Back From Traveling!

And I still have a bit more time before I leave again for school in the fall. So here are some events that are up and coming in the DC/Bmore urr-ea.

First off, don't forget about DJ Dredd's Prince Vs. Madonna Party this Sunday. Should be off the hook.

DC's new Red And Black Bar has been holding down some hot concerts. It's part of the rising Atlas District on H St., NE. Tonight, super cool klezmer punk band Golem will be performing along with DJ Anaan AKA one of the guys from JDub Records. If you are into gypsy punk and yiddish rock, you should definitely go check these guys out. If I'm not super exhausted from jet lag, you may catch me there. Tickets: $8

Tomorrow night at Red And Black, Miss Hipstah fave Indigo Son will be performing with The Sunday Mail and The Wakes. Tickets: $7

Also check out the finally completed Rock & Roll Hotel. I can't wait to go check out a show here. I've already heard it's FAB-U-LOUS!
