Welcome to the second edition of PoPtrekker. In case you missed it, you can see Vol. 1 here. Vol. 2 features Georgia Avenue from the Petworth Metro down to Florida Avenue. The idea for this video resulted from the numerous conversations I’ve had with folks who are terrified of Georgia Ave. I wanted to show that Georgia Avenue is a street like any other (during the day) and there are many spots well worth checking out. I look a bit chewed up in the beginning of the video, so allow me to explain. We filmed this edition after a two night visit to the 9:30 club from one of my favorite bands, the Drive by Truckers. Suffice it to say, I properly represented…I’d like to apologize to the deaf community because I was unable to get a transcript of the video. Does anyone know of any non profits that do transcripts for free? This remains a joint Prince of Petworth/Intangible Arts production.If you have a suggestion for a future PoPtrekker please email me directly.
